Bologna earthquake - we are fine!

Between Saturday and Sunday we had a serious earthquake in the Bologna area.

"At least seven people died and more than 50 were injured when the quake struck in the early hours of Sunday.
The magnitude six tremor, centred north of Bologna, destroyed or badly damaged many historic buildings.
Italian officials say the priority is to find safe accommodation for an estimate 3,000 displaced people."

By God's grace we are fine, and also my parents and everyone in the church is fine and our house didn't have any damage!
Thanks ever so much to everyone who prayed for us and wrote to us!

Jenny and I were away since I was speaking at a Conference at 250 Km from Bologna,
so we didn't feel much the earthquake.
But everyone in the area was very scared and shocked and we are still expecting some minor tremors.

Please do continue to pray for the people who lost their homes and the families of those who died during the earthquake!
