Kiwi Second Thunder

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

By now most of you should be aware of the magnitude 7 earthquake which shook Christchurch, New Zealand a few hours ago.  A cousin of mine is in New Zealand, and has responded to concern about her safety with:

Hello all,

Thank you for your prayers – I am safe. I am living in Dunedin which is south of Christchurch. While some people felt it here in Dunedin (I did not, I was asleep!) the damage is in Christchurch. Please pray for the people of Christchurch.

I expect Weinland will talk this up in his sermon tomorrow as evidence of the increasing thunders.  Nevertheless, this second thunder will not prevent his appearance in New Zealand as scheduled in 3 weeks.  The PKG feast site in Rotorua is over 300 miles from Christchurch on the northern main island, while Dunedin is only about 150 miles from Christchurch on the same southern main island.  We could hope for a bit of 6th thunder in the form of an indictment on tax evasion charges to stop that, but that is not likely in the week or so before he leaves the US for his annual feast tour.
