Thirty Four

So these past few days in Korea have been very tension filled. South Korea has live-fire drills they are practicing and North Korea is threatening that if they go through with them, they will fire at them. The drills for the South won't be pointed towards North Korea in any form or fashion, but of course, North Korea always has to make a fuss. So almost 2 hours ago, the firing started. I am refreshing the CNN webpage hoping they will give me an update, but alas, they have not. S Korea started their Live Fire drills at 10am Korean time (currently it is 1150am). Joshua is in their motorpool working and I am sitting in his room awaiting further information. I am praying and ask anyone who prays to pray with me. This is not only a place of peace for Americans, but also for the South Koreans. They are peaceful by nature and have never retaliated when N Korea does absurd things. I have been trying to figure out what I will do if War breaks out. Obviously North Korea will lose, but it will be a tough few days/weeks/months/years until it is all resolved. I am happy to say that I am far away from the N and S Borders, but my little 19 year old brother is right there. I am praying for his safety as he is so young. He is my baby brother. I just don't know what I'd do if I lost him in this. I don't know what I'd do about Joshua either but at least he is farther away that the eminent danger is with Bradley. *Sigh* Pray for them. If you don't pray, send them your good thoughts and wishes! But please be with us in thought, if nothing else.

With love,
