I spoke to the older couple this morning and they are all fine and have no damage to their home or to the building where they meet for services. They were preparing for a midweek service when the earthquake hit and waited it out in an empty lot across the street. This brother told me that the earth was moving like the waves of the sea. (Having never been in an earthquake I cannot imagine. One of my friends and faithful readers grew up in Southern California and probably know more about this and so can better empathize. The only ground-shaking I have experienced was from a gas explosion which destroyed a house nearby a few years ago.) Afterward, however, they continued with their Wednesday evening service and had a full house as many from their neighborhood came to church after the earthquake. He was able to preach with boldness and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who might not otherwise have heard. Our prayers are with him that he will be able to reach out to them in the wake of this.
The younger couple I have not yet heard from. I left a message with them and spoke to their home church. Their home church had not heard from them but had heard from another family who ministers nearby and they were okay so I am hoping that they are all okay as well.
