Qualifying week is underway


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor


The race is officially on as qualifying week got underway
Monday and continues through noon on Friday.
Although most candidates have qualified by petition,
that deadline has passed and those who file this week must
pay a qualifying fee. The fee is slightly higher in a partisan
race with a two percent collected for the chosen party.
One new candidate stepped forward in the School
Superintendent's race. Ron Mears, the agriculture teacher
at Blountstown High School, will run for that seat as a
democrat. He will face incumbent Mary Sue Neves and Dr.
Glenda Sue Vickery in the primary election August 26. The
winner will meet Jimmy D. Marshall and Tommy
McClellan on the ballot Nov. 4.
In the Blountstown City Council race, Tony Shoemake
has qualified to seek re-election. Also filing this week was
David Blair who is seeking the post currently held by John
Tomlinson, Jr. who is not running again. Winston Deason
was the only candidate to step forward as of press time in
the mayor's race. That seat has been vacant since the death
of Mayor Marsha Harpool earlier this year.
Dropping out of the County Commission race in district
5 is Orville Eby who was running as a Republican..
Supervisor of Elections Margie Laramore reminds all
candidates they must have their paperwork completed and
notarized by noon this Friday, June 20, in order to run.
The Elections office website (www.votecalhoun.com) has
a complete list of local candidates, along with election dates,
reminders, and more. "We have a lot of valuable informa-
tion on there," says Laramore. "We even include census
information and former elected officials from the 1900s."
Information is updated daily as candidates qualify.

Altha teen dons

costume, enters

home with firearm
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
An Altha teen is facing some serious charges
after donning a homemade mask and holding a
gun on a man.
The 17-year-old boy, unidentified due to his
age, was arrested June 12 for aggravated assault
with a firearm and armed trespassing. A warrant
has been issued for his alleged accomplice,
Christopher Lafollette, 18, for trespassing.
According to the Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office, the pair allegedly went to the Camphead
Road home of Josh Watford, 25, near Mossy Pond.
The trio reportedly has a history of problems. The
teen and Lafollette allegedly knocked on Watford's
door, then hid beside his porch. When, he
answered, the teen reportedly jumped out wearing
a trash bag fashioned into a mask and holding a
gun. Watford fled to his parents' home nearby and
called authorities. With the assistance of a K-9
team, investigators found a latex glove, shoeprints
and tire tracks that led them to the two suspects.


A wreath was placed in front of
the old courthouse on Central
Avenue East Friday in memory
of the late James Amaziah
Peacock, Jr., former Calhoun
County Clerk of Court, who
passed away June 10 at his
home. He was 85. Peacock
served as the Clerk from 1960
to 1976, following in the foot-
steps of his father. His complete
obituary appears on page 10.

Former Blountstown resident shares story of faith, hope, and survival




Living through the earthquake in China


BY JENNY (YODER) GRABER

Jenny Yoder Graber is the
28-year-old daughter of Ben
and Carol Yoder of
.Blountstown. She and her hus-
*band, Chad, along with their
two-year-old son, Matthew,
currently reside in China near
'the epicenter of the earthquake
*that occurred last month. This
:week, they share their story
with our readers, the first in a
'two-part series.
We are fairly adventurous
,people when it comes to travel-
ring. We lived in New York City
for three years after we were
,married, and loved it. But Chad
-had China stuck on his heart
and wanted to return there to
:teach English. We moved to
:Chengdu, China, in the fall of
:2004 and began learning
:Chinese. Chad started teaching
:English six months later.
Both being raised in the
:country, we wanted to get out of
,the city and live in a more rural
area. We heard of an opportuni-
:ty to teach English at a small
;college in the town of
'Wenchuan, about 4-5 hours by
bus from Chengdu where we
-were living. We moved on
:August 15, 2007, joining two
-other foreigners who were also
.teaching English there: Vicki
,and Claude The air was clean
-'and fresh. The river cut through
"the mountains that surrounded
'us, and everywhere we looked
we found something interesting.
We loved being there! We had
committed to teach one year
"before our move back to
America, and were really enjoy-
-ing the interaction with stu-
dents. It was one of the best
_experiences of our lives! We
were in the last semester of the


year when an earthquake
changed everything.

Monday, May 12th, 2:30
PM -
The morning had been a
rather stressful one, so after
lunch I lay down for a nap while
Matthew, our two year old son,
was sleeping. Chad was relax-
ing a bit after teaching his
morning class, and was reading
in the living room. I was sud-
denly awakened from my nap
by shaking it felt like the earth
was jumping up and down, and
I heard loud banging of the
foundations beneath me. I
decided after it didn't stop that
this was an earthquake and not
just a bad dream. I panicked,
because I didn't know what to
do. Chad stayed very calm and
told me to just get down by a
wall. I ran over next to him and
we huddled by one of the struc-
tural walls, and waited for the
shaking to end.... 2 minutes is a
long time.... and cried over and
over again, "Jesus, save us!"
Chad felt that Matthew was
as safe as he could be in his
room, since he was sleeping in a
Pack-n-Play that was also up
against a weight-bearing wall.
As the shaking began to stop,
the electricity went out and
then the dust from the nearby
landslides rose up in the air,
covering the sun-light. It was
pitch black, and we fumbled our
way through the house to get
Matthew, who was awake now
and crying, "Daddy, Daddy,
broke...DADDY!" Fortunately,
nothing from above had fallen
down and we were able to get
Matthew and calm him down.
What a relief to all be together!
I wanted to get out of the build-
ing, afraid that the six floors


above would come crashing
down on us any minute.
On our way out we grabbed
our shoes and keys, and fortu-
nately the door opened without
a problem. By this time the
dust was settling a bit to allow
the sun-light through; the sky
had a strange green-ish color
that soon shifted to a dusty
haze. People were running out
of the buildings and getting into
small groups. Thick dust cov-
ered everyone and everything
and we watched / heard the
mountain sliding down close to
our house, and also across the
river on the other side.
Fortunately, no big rocks fell
near us!
Everyone just roamed
around in a semi-panic / dazed
state, calling out names of their
loved ones. We found Claude,
but he didn't know where Vicki
was. I was afraid that she was
trapped in her house, and Chad
and Claude went to look for her,
but couldn't find her. At times
like this, you begin to think
about how we should communi-
cate with each other and know
what is going on in each other's
lives. Soon Vicki showed up,
dirty and dusty, but OK. She
and Claude's apartments were
in an older building and they
didn't fare as well. Their houses
looked pretty much like they
were about to fall down. We
didn't realize how lucky we
were that our building was still
in decent shape.
We all finally made our way
to the sports field where we
ended up staying for the rest of
our time in Wenchuan. The stu-
dents seemed relieved, but not

really understanding the impli-
cations of the earthquake, hud-
dled in groups. Some of them
attempted to tell me that every-
thing would be OK and to not
worry. I, felt like I knew too
much about life to believe that
everything would be all peachy.
I knew that it was likely that
the landslides could block the
river, causing flooding. I knew
that the landslides had blocked
the roads and we were stuck in
Wenchuan for who-knows-how-
long. I knew that without elec-
tricity there would be no water.
I knew that the situation could
be very bad. But at this point,
most of the students were in a
"we're OK" state of mind.


Students raided the campus
shops, celebrating at the free
ice-cream and noodles and lol-
lipops they had gotten. I stored
up as much as was given to us,
thinking that we might need
food later on. We all just sat
there in the open field and wait-
ed for instructions from some-
one.

Boyd announces federal



funding for local hospital


WASHINGTON, D.C.-
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) announced
Monday that the Calhoun
Liberty .Hospital Association
will receive two rural develop-
ment grants and loans from the
U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) to improve and
upgrade the Calhoun Liberty
Hospital.
The Calhoun Liberty
Hospital Association has been
awarded a grant in the amount
of $90,000 and a loan of
$381,400 to purchase new hos-
pital equipment. The new
equipment includes a radiology
unit, an emergency generator,
and a nurse call system.
Additionally, the hospital will
receive a grant of $22,000 and
a loan of $18,000 to buy a new
Heating, Ventilation', and Air
Conditioning (HVAC) system.
"This federal funding is great
news for Calhoun Liberty
Hospital and the patients it
serves," said Congressman
Boyd. "Through this federal
funding, Calhoun Liberty
Hospital will be able to improve
their facilities and healthcare
services and continue to offer
affordable, accessible, quality
healthcare to the people of
Calhoun and Liberty
Counties."

Calhoun and Liberty
Counties have been designated
as a "Rural Area of Critical
Economic Concern" by the
State of Florida. Communities
receiving this designation have
greater access and flexibility
within the Rural Community
Development Revolving Loan
and the Regional Development
Grant Programs on the state
level. In addition, this designa-
tion provides more opportunity
for federal funding.to promote
economic development initia-
tives and local projects in'the
area.
"I believe that we must do
all we can to support our rural
hospitals and to make sure that
these hospitals have state-of-
the-art technology and equip-


ment," Boyd stated.
"Affordable, reliable, and quali-
ty healthcare in our rural com-
munities has been a top priority
of mine for all of my years in


public service, and I will contin-
ue working closely with the
community to improve the
accessibility of quality health-
care in our area."

nating this project to make a

Dinner Theatre
` Planning is underway for the
3rd Annual Blountstown Main

Theatre so get ready to head
"Back to Jack's" for a rockin'
good time!
Due to popular demand, the
show will run four nights -
Friday, Oct. 31, Saturday, Nov.
1, Friday, Nov. 7, and Saturday,
Nov. 8, inside the historic Frink
Gym at the Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement. Tickets (price to be
announced) will go on sale
Labor Day week (Sept. 1).
This musical production will
be set at one of Blountstown's
favorite old haunts, Jack's
Drive In. As always, the stars of
the show will be local actors
who will pull out all the stops to
keep you entertained.
Script writers, Angie Hill
and Kelli Peacock, are current-
ly seeking stories from folks
who spent their nights at Jack's.


Blountstown Main Street members will meet Monday, June 23, at
12 noon at The Tudor Rose ted room on North Main Street. Anyone
interested in downtown revitalization is urged to attend.


They will mix these true tales
with a little bit of fiction and
toss in a murder to spice things
up a bit. If you have a Jack's
story to share, email
news@thecountyrecord.net or
call 899-0500 (please leave a
message). Angie and Kelli are
also planning to hold story gath-
ering lunch meetings over the'
summer with anyone interested
in sharing.
Proceeds from the produc-
tion go to Blountstown Main
Street, an organization with a


mission to revitalize downtown
Blountstown. One of the biggest
fundraisers associated with the
dinner theatre is the silent auc-
tion. Although it is typically
held on the first night of the
show, this year it is being
expanded to all four nights.
Donations of anything from
books to art to vacation home
visits are needed to help raise
money for the downtown effort.
Call 899-0500 if you would like
to donate something to the

Courtney Ricardo places



1st in 'Spotlight on Talent'


Courtney Ricardo, 18 year
old daughter of Lou and Tina
Ricardo, recently participated
in Pasco County's 25th anniver-
sary "Spotlight on Talent"
Contest. Spotlight is one of the
many events sponsored by the
Heritage Art Center
Association of Dade City. This
organization encourages appre-
ciation for the performing arts
year round. Spotlight continues
to grow in popularity each year
and this year's event drew over
100 participants.
Courtney placed 4th in her
group (grades 11-12) category
with her vocal/dance act to
Chicago's "I Can't Do It Alone"
and 1st in her musical theater
duet performance from
Broadway's "Wicked". She
and her duet partner were also
recognized as the Grand
Champion winners with an invi-
tation to come back and per-
form at next year's show.

Cabin Patch


Chipola now state college Day Camp at
-B- thAP ROMPAOwnt


MARIANNA-With the sig-
nature of Florida Governor
Charlie Crist on June 12,
Chipola College is officially a
State College.
The signing ceremony was
held in the Mattie Kelley Fine
Arts Center at Okaloosa-Walton
College in Niceville.
Chipola is one of nine com-
munity colleges in the State
College pilot project for Florida
community colleges which offer
four-year degrees. The list of
State Colleges include: Chipola
College, Daytona Beach
College, Edison College, Indian
River College, Miami Dade
College, Okaloosa-Walton
College, Polk College, Santa Fe
College and St. Petersburg
College.
Chipola president Dr. Gene
Prough said, "This is an impor-
tant day in the life of Chipola
College. As a state college, we
will be able to expand our offer-
ings to provide more opportuni-
ties to the people in our district
and beyond."
State Colleges are estab-
lished in Senate Bill 1716
which creates the new Florida
College System consisting of
institutions that. grant '2-year
and 4-year academic degrees.
The bill was initiated by House


of Representatives Speaker-
Designate Rep. Ray Sansom,
R-Destin. "We are appreciative
of Gov. Crist's interest in this
important legislation," said
Sansom. "As a result of this new
law, nine community colleges
will be eligible to expand more
easily the number of bachelor's
degree programs they offer.
This means more students in
Florida will be able to access
higher education degrees, espe-
cially in academic areas where
the demand for educated work-
ers is exceeding the supply. We
expect these programs to be
more affordable and cost-effec-
tive than those at the state uni-
versity level-and that's anoth-
er benefit to both the taxpayers
and the students."
The newly-created Florida
College System is a middle-tier
system of higher education
which is expected to maximize
student access to baccalaureate
degrees, respond to community
needs for postsecondary educa-
tion, and provide the degrees
that best meet Florida's
employment needs.
The bill creates the Florida
College System Task Force,
comprised of community col-
lege presidents and others with
expertise in higher education in


Florida, to develop recommen-
dations for establishing and
funding state colleges, including
a program approval process for
new baccalaureate degree pro-
grams, a funding model that
ensures cost-effective delivery
with substantial savings to the
student and the. state over the
cost of providing degrees at
state universities, and identifi-
cation of geographic and aca-
demic areas of need for degree
programs.
State colleges are prohibited
from using the term "universi-
ty" and from granting graduate
degrees. Intercollegiate athlet-
ics for state colleges will remain
at the two-year level. State
Colleges also must provide cost-
effective delivery with substan-
tial savings over state university
system costs.
Chipola College was founded
in 1947. to provide the first two
years of college and workforce
programs for residents of the
five-county district of Calhoun,
Holmes, Jackson, Liberty and
Washington Counties. In 2002,
Chipola and Miami Dade
became the second and third
Florida community colleges
authorized to offer bachelor's

" q fougt to

Remember
In our present day
thinking the majority
seem to have the
conception that all men
are actually good at
heart. If he destroys
Tm Adams property of others it is
F*,,,eO,,,ar because he had a
frustrated youth. If he
steals, kills or abuses the'rights of others -
*he is simply ignorant or is surrounded by
adverse environment.
Fifty years ago and as far back as 2,000
years ago this was not the thinking. Man
was considered bad until he made the effort
of "change". We used to think man was evil
when he made evil choices, and good when
he finally decided to make good choices.
Today as hundreds of years ago the
teachings concerning the wickedness of the
human heart still holds good.
Evil and bad is simply a matter of choice
with people today. Our children need the
Important lesson taught them they must
choose to be good. 'Only those who choose
good become good.

How would you define


economic development?


BY KRISTY HALLEY SPEERS

What exactly is "economic
development?" Recently, eco-
nomic development has
become a three-dollar term that
seems to be everywhere, but
not easily defined.
Here's the quick and dirty
definition, according to
Wikipedia: Economic develop-
ment is the development of eco-
nomic wealth of communities
for the well-being of their
inhabitants. From a policy per-
spective, economic develop-
ment can be defined as efforts
that seek to improve the eco-
nomic well-being and quality of
life for a community by creating
and/or retaining jobs and sup-
porting or growing incomes and
the tax base.
The Chamber of
Commerce's recent Visioning
2011 workshops identified spe-
cific objectives for the future -
membership enhancement,
involvement in government
affairs, educational partner-
ships, and the establishment of
lodging in our county. At the
core of each of the outlined
goals is to build a strong founda-
tion for our .community, and
doing that depends on econom-
ic development.
The Chamber hopes to
enhance the economic quality
of life in our community and
present more economic oppor-


Paul's Instructions
I Timothy 1:18-19
In this scripture, we see that
Timothy was given instructions
and was admonished that he
should fight the good fight and
hold on to faith and a good con-
science. Paul was the one who
instructed him and encouraged
him. Paul was faithful to teach
him and challenge him to be a
strong soldier of the faith. He
knew of some who had rejected
their faith and lost their way.
This, was a warning of what
could happen.
We can apply Paul's teach-
ing to our lives today. God
needs people who will fight the
good fight and be strong in faith.
The world is full of those who
would try to lure us away from
our spiritual foundations. God
calls us to say true to our faith
andt the teachings we have had
all along.
Our homes need us to be


tunities for the people that live
here. During the Visioning
exercise, the group listed two
important avenues to explore
as we focus on economic devel-
opment the possibility of
working with a grant writer, and
the establishment of an overall
image of Calhoun County.
A grant' writer would be an
important resource to add in
building and enhancing our
existing infrastructure. A grant
writer would be well-versed in
the application process, educat-
ed on various grants offered,
and would handle not only the
development of the application,
but also submission and follow
up. In these hard times of eco-
nomic shortfalls, grants could
help keep the growth momen-
tum of our county going.
As another foundational ele-
ment of the economic develop-
ment process, the group wanted
to work on building the image of
Calhoun County. Improvement
to gateways, signage and an
overall public relations cam-
paign could help build percep-
tion of others. It's been said
that, "You only get one chance
to make a first impression."
With the support of our mem-
bers and the community, we
can work together to build an
image that invites a second look
from those who could potential-
ly bring economic opportunities
to our community.


steadfast in the things that real-
ly matter. Our church needs us
to walk in the straight path as
God leads and directs us. We
truly have a cause and a great
challenge. We are all encour-
aged when we think of the
many who have gone before
and have been faithful, "for if
God is for us, who can be
against us?" Romans 8:31.

This song says a great deal.
Follow, follow, I will fol-
low Jesus.
Anywhere, everywhere, I
will
follow on.,
Follow, follow, I will fol-
low Jesus.
Ev'rywhere He lehds me
I will '
follow on.
-William Cushing

What kind of a disciple or
follower are we? Are we strong,
fighting the good fight?


OBITUARIE S


Howell one step closer


in 'Seven Summits' quest

Blountstown's Ray Howell is one step closer in his "Seven
Summits" quest after he summitted Mount Elbrus in Russia on May
20. Mount Elbrus is the tallest peak on the European continent,
standing at ] 8,540 feet. In August 2007, he summitted Mount
Kilimanjaro in Africa. Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest free standing
mountain in the world and the tallest on the African Continent stand-
ing at 19,340 feet. The "Seven Summits" consists of the tallest peaks
on all seven continents and is the crown jewel of mountaineering.
Only 208 people have ever complished the "Seven Summits" and
only 66 of those were Americans.

The County Record, JUNE 18, 2008, Page 14


China earthquake continued


arrived in Wenchuan. As we sat
in the tent, each absorbed in
our silent fears and wonderings,
Tom said, "I think now I believe
that there is a God. After this I
will have religion." It seemed
that many people were thinking
seriously about their lives at
this time. We all tried to settle
down for some rest. Many of
the students sat up all night,
leaning on each other, because
of lack of space. Matthew
seemed pretty scared, and
would only calm down when he
was lying on Chad's or my
chest, listening to us sing. For
some reason the song, Away In
a Manger, came to our minds.
Maybe because we also felt that
we had no place to lay our son.
Even though I had a spot -to lie
down part of the night, I still
only slept about 5 minutes -
there was too much on my
mind. I couldn't wait for the
morning light!

Tuesday, May 13th -
We awoke to discover that
we had indeed survived. the
night! Praise God for that. It
rained all day, turning all the
dust to mud. Our tent leaked.
My stomach was in knots and
churning quite a bit! Being
three and a half months preg-
nant, I knew I needed to eat for
the baby's sake, but I could
hardly bring myself to. I collect-
ed the dripping rain water from
the tarp, in case we would be
there for a long time and ran
out of water to wash with.
Maybe we could even boil it for
drinking if needed. The stu-
dents laughed at me, thinking
that we wouldn't run out of
water. They still didn't under-
stand the gravity of the situa-
tion.
Chad went with Vicki and
Claude to their houses to
retrieve things. The back wall
of their apartment building had
fallen down, and they were
afraid of looting a real concern.
Their apartment building was
much worse than ours, so they
put their things in. our house.
Letting Chad out of my sight for
this long was terrifying!
Matthew went along on one of
those trips to the house and was
distressed because: "'Matthew's
house broke... A mess... Daddy
cried.....Matthew cried." It was
very hard for hirm. He didn't
like seeing his house in that con-
dition and couldn't understand


why he couldn't stay there.
In moments when the rain
let up,' students poured out of
the tents, looking for items to
make their tents more stable.
The campus got destroyed as
students took desks, chairs,
doors, stage curtains, bulletin
boards, beautiful paintings from
the art department, branches
from the trees, etc.... for tent-
building. But, in a time like this,
does it matter?
I also went out and found a
few "toys' for Matthew some
colored pencils and paper
(some student's homework), dif-
ferent colored bottle caps..'., he
was happy for them and the
other little boys wanted to come
and play, too.
As the day and the rain wore
on, the mood became depressed
and quiet. The night was damp
and miserable. A teacher invit-
ed Matthew and I to sleep in
the front seat of her car. I was a
bit worried about being separat-
ed from Chad, but everything
turned out fine. In a car, you
can't feel the tremors as much,
so I actually slept abit;

Wednesday, May 14th -
A sunny day, so more posi-
tive moods all around! Major
scavenging and tent-building
today. There were some pretty
creative tents on the sports
field! Lots of trees and branches
were hacked down for firewood
for cooking.
The school opened up a deep
well (by our apartment on the
opposite side of the campus)
and students used buckets and
containers of all kinds to haul
water back to their tents. I had
no idea that there was a well
with clean water a very good
sign for us. (Later, people from
Wenchuan town and other vil-
lages came to the college for
water, too) They also got a gen-
erator hooked up to the well,
and hooked a fire hose to the
end of it. The water was on at
certain times of the day, and
there would be long lines of stu-
dents waiting. The school
hauled out the large woks
(maybe 20 gallon size) from the
cafeteria and set them up for
making xi fan rice porridge -
for the students. They were get-
ting set up for the long haul.
Chad took me back to our
house for the first time to take a
look around and get some items
to use in our tent. I also


changed my clothes for the first
time it felt so good. I could
hardly stay there in the
house..... feelings of panic urged
me to quickly get my things and
get out. Chad and Matthew felt
differently about being in the
house it brought them peace
and security. I realized that we
were each dealing with the
trauma differently and that we
needed sensitivity for how the
other was working through the
grief.
Our tent was full of loud
noisy students and getting
warmer by the minute, so we
looked for a quiet shady spot for
Matthew's nap. We took our
shoes off to let our feet breathe,
and Matthew giggled with
delight the first laugh since the
earthquake. It did my heart
good. I combed my hair for the
first time what a mess!! Army
helicopters flew over for the
first time. The students were
sure that they'd land there on
the sports field. We cleared a
spot and put out a big red X.
The helicopters just circled
around..... the students were
thoroughly depressed! I was
happy that at least the Army
had seen us and knew where we
were.
When the earthquake first
happened, I thought that surely
we'd be directly flown out by
helicopter. The longer it went,
the more I thought that was a
nice thought, but that we would
be there for the long haul and
eventually bussed out with the
rest of the students. Why did I
think I was more special than
anyone else? These kinds of sit-
uations bring out the best and
worst in people. I found that I
was really struggling to trust
God completely in this situation
and was focusing on my own
personal safety more than in
the needs of others. How hum-
bling to see the ugly side of
myself come out. I prayed that
God would forgive me, and help
me to be more thoughtful of
others.
We also thought a lot about
our families today surely they
must have heard by now that
Wenchuan was in an, earth-
quake (yet we still did not know
how big the earthquake was,
and that we were so near the
epi-center. Sometimes no news
is helpful!). We had no way to
communicate with anyone no
cell phone service no internet.


Students camped out on the sports field in homemade tents following the earthquake in China last


month.
We prayed for much grace and
strength for them!
In the afternoon, someone
found an extra tarp, and so we
built our own tent. The other
one was too crowded and this
would give us a bit more priva-
cy. Chad and Vicki laid a board
across some tree branches, and
then stretched a tarp across
that. We put on side panels of
bed-sheets to close it in a bit. I
was helping dig a little trench at
the back of the tent for rain
water when I felt a little pain in
my abdomen. With the stress of
just surviving, I forgot for a
while that I was pregnant. I just
prayed that God would protect
this baby, since I was not in the
position to be overly cautious
and careful about my life-style
at that time. Then I let some-
one else finish the trench.
Our little family, Vicki, Tom,
and his friend, Sarah, all slept
in the tent that night. It was
rather cozy and much quieter,
but I still had an unsettled
sleep, since there were several
tremors. Lying with my ear
right close to the ground, I could
always hear / sense the rum-
bling before the tremor ever
started. It was nice, in some
ways, to have the warning.


Dust fills the air from a landslide following a tremor.


The biggest blessing of the
day was that a few people were
receiving connections with their
cell phones. We gave some
phone numbers of our Chengdu
friends to one teacher whose
phone worked, and she kept
trying to call for us. Around
9:30 PM she came over to our
tent and said, "I got through and
told your friend that you are
safe." With language barriers,
we could only hope that we had


understood her correctly and
that soon our family and friends
would know that we were alive
Thank-you, God!! "
