Major quake in Kyrgyzstan claims 72

Late last night we heard news of this tragedy:
"At least 72 people have been killed and more than 100 injured in a devastating earthquake in Kyrgyzstan, which also destroyed 120 houses. Emergency services are now working at the site. Seismologists say there could still be aftershocks or even another quake."

This country is part of the former Soviet Union and is south of Russia between Kazakstan and Uzbekistan. This news caught our attention because one of Spencer's roommates in Ukraine is from there. We have not yet heard if anyone in his family was affected by the quake.

Please keep this in your prayers!
