Today's post is one of mixed emotion. Today I am grateful that I am safe. With all the events happening around the world, I am grateful for my safety and the safety of my family. This weekend has been difficult in the fact that many of my friends who live in or are from Japan have been affected by what has happened. I can't imagine the fear and devastation these wonderful people are feeling. I served an LDS mission in Japan and so I can honestly say I love the Japanese people. It has been hard for me to see so many suffer. However, I do have the hope that through this horrible tragedy good will come from it. I pray that many will find God and that many hearts will be open to the truth of The Gospel.
I am grateful that I had the opportunity to share my love and testimony with the people of Japan and now my prayers are once again with them as they get through this horrific disaster.
