From Paul Burns:
Elyse is teaching in an English camp this week on the east coast of Taiwan south of Taipei. Today (10:50 am our time) there was a large earthquake in the area with much damage and injuries. We have not been able to reach her and are concerned about her safety. Please pray for her and her students that they are safe.
Our Father and our God, we ask for your grace and mercy for our sister Elyse and her companions. As we have commended Elyse to your care and keeping, we trust in your great promise that you are able to keep that which has been committed to you. We pray also for the grace , consolation, and protection of your Holy Spirit for Elyse to get through this dangerous time and for her family to remain steadfast in trust and peace as they await news. We are grateful that all are secure in your everlasting love, as we commit these concerns to you in the strong and mighty Name of Jesus. Amen
