April 9, 2005 (9:45 am local time) - Medan, Sumatra, Indonesia - Report submitted by Joe Hurston - President - Air Mobile
There's a whole lot of shaking going on! Yesterday, Nias Island had 3 earthquakes; a 5.5 / 5.6 / 6.0 magnitude. We can only imagine what the residents are going through. Their nerves must be shot. Please remember to pray for them!
I was able to get a "sim" card for my phone turning it into an Indonesian cell phone or "hand-phone" as they call it here. This has made it much easier to contact some of the other relief organizations here. We've made successful contact with several already this morning. We're heading over to the airport to work on securing "lifts" to the multiple affected areas, Nias, Banda Aceh and Meulaboh. Please remember to pray for the Air Mobile team that we are in the "right place at the right time"!
We really appreciate each of you. Thank you standing with and praying with us on this mission!
