“There will be families receiving the worst kind of news in the next few days,” New Zealand Foreign Ministry said on Friday. “This is not just New Zealand’s tragedy, its a tragedy that will touch many families around the world.”
The King’s Education language school catered to students from Japan, China, the Philippines, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan and Korea. The building’s collapse has pulled an international group of anguished relatives into and agonizing vigil awaiting conclusive word on the victims. .
Please pray for families who helplessly wait for news of the beloved ones.
May the God of peace and all comfort, comfort each one who calls upon Him, that each one who trusts in the Lord will know that the Lord is in control, and that He will lead them even through the valley of the shadow of death and that they many know that He is with them to strengthen and to love them as much as they need and more.
As they grieve, may they be drawn closer to let the Balm of Gilead give healing to their aching hearts for the loved ones they now miss.
Jesus said “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you. Let not your heart be troubled neither let it be afraid. . ”
May each find that peace that comes from being under His Wings. Amen.
