First, thank you all for your continued prayers.  Japan still needs them as do the service members and their families.  The Rear Admiral in Yokosuka (pronounce Yokoska) just put out a message that time outside should be limited due to low radiation levels.  Also, vents to the outside should be closed if at all possible.

We lived in Atsugi, which is also under the warning.  I'm sure that Zama and Yokota are also under warnings. 

The area is still being hit with huge aftershocks.  A 6.0 hit an hour ago.  The family members are getting extremely nervous, with the continued aftershocks and the radiation warning. I'll tell you also, that the members that are married to the Japanese are stating that the Japanese think another big one is coming.

I hope this map helps you understand where the troops are stationed in Japan. 

I have a friend whose a missionary, that's trying to get her and her kids out of Japan.  They are collecting donations to do so.  If you are interested in helping that way, please let me know and I'll send you the link

I also wanted to say thank you for all your prayers when the tsunami was bearing down on us.  Thankfully, even though I'm on an islans, we're well enough inland in the Puget Sound and on the east side, so we didn't have any affect here.

Thank you all and God Bless!


  1. I am so heartbroken as I watch things unfold on the news. I am torn between not being able to bear watching one more minute of it to feeling bad that I am going on with my regular charmed life while all of that is going on. I imagine it all feels so much closer to home for you. Praying for all of those in Japan and for those who have lost so much.

  2. I am anxious about such petty things. Then I come here and am reminded that I am so blessed and snap back to reality. I'm ashamed of myself.
    I will speak with my dh about your missionary friend. Not sure we have any extra in the budget right now. It is all so sad.


Thank you, friend for visiting today!
