Just a quick post to say that our friends and family in the city of Chengdu, Sichuan have finally been accounted for. Unfortunately, we haven't been able to reach anyone in Da Miao Village yet. Zhang Lin's school is in the Western mountains of Sichuan, so of course I'm concerned for her safety in the wake of the terrible earthquake yesterday. My heart breaks to see familiar names of towns and cities affected and all of devastated faces on the news.
As I learn more news, I'll keep you updated. Daniel is traveling to Sichuan in less than a month, one of his tasks being to bring Zhang Lin her second year of tuition funds. I'm sure he'll be able to reach the family and find out how everyone fared.
