This e-mail came in a round about way to our family forum from someone with connections in China.  What an incredible answer to prayer for the many of us who have been praying!  Continue to keep this family in your prayers.


Chad called me from
Wenchuan a few minutes ago and wanted me to let you know that all is well with
them. They are living in a tent on the soccer field of the college there because
their building is damaged. Their house is still in good enough shape that he has
been able to go into it every day to sort of go through things and start packing
things up. They are basically just waiting till the road gets opened enough to
get a ride out…Chad said someone told him maybe 3 or 4 days but it could be
longer than that. Army trucks were able to get in through that road recently but
yesterday I heard that it had been closed again because of slides caused by
strong aftershocks. They have water and the basic things that they need, Chad
said it is sort of like they are living in a big refugee camp. He said that
everything is quite orderly around there with lots of army guys around making
sure people stay calm etc. Chad said it is very dusty around there because there
were major rock slides all around the area. He said it did rain some the first
evening and then all of the second day but since then it has been sunny.
