On the morning of my birthday Chup came upstairs with a glazed look on his face.
"The earthquake hit hardest in Sendai."
Sendai was Chup's home for two years when he was a missionary, and six more months after he graduated from college. Chup dearly loves Japan. Loves the culture, loves the language, loves his friends who live there. This passion for All Things Japanese has infused our life and we eat, watch and talk of Japan regularly.
It nearly broke my heart.
Then I saw his status update on facebook:
and despite it being my birthday and all, it was a day of reverence and prayer.
Courage to our friends in Japan.
