A few weeks ago I asked for prayers about the earthquake damaged retaining wall behind our house which is being re-constructed. We have actually had several sizeable quakes since I made that request including two of the biggest shakes since the big one in March. So far we have made it through safely. Earthquakes have not been are only concern heavy rains have also been a danger during this project. Right now as I write a typhoon is skirting along the coastline of Japan threatening to dump significant amounts of rain on Tokyo.
The good news is that the work has progressed to the point that as of yesterday, heavy rains no longer present the danger that they did before and it should be able to withstand whatever amount of wind and rain this typhoon can dish out.
I am very thankful that the construction workers have been doing their best to make a speedy and safe repair of this wall. And I am equally grateful for all who have prayed for us. I do ask for your continued prayers for those who continue to be effected by the Great East Japan Earthquake.
