Earthquake in New Zealand

In case you haven’t heard, there has been a devastating 6.3 magnitude earthquake in the area of Canterbury area in New Zealand. There’s been massive damage, and 65 people are dead with more missing and presumed buried. Search teams with rescue dogs (yay!) are searching for survivors.

For those of you who want the latest information, here’s the website for the New Zealand Red Cross and a website specifically for updates about the Canterbury Earthquake. I’m sure that there will be information, eventually, on the best way to donate to help those who have lost family and homes, but for now, I’m sure they can use prayers.
