Indonesia seems to attract alot of natural disasters!
As you may have heard, there are TWO that have happened recently. A volcanic eruption in Java and a Tsunami in Sumatera.
Since we live in Papua now, we are far from both of these (i.e. we live in New York; the volcano is in Arizona and the Tsunami is in California)
The volcano though, is only about 15 miles from Salatiga, where we lived for language school. No one in Salatiga has been hurt since there is another big mountain in between the town and the volcano, but families living nearer to it have been injured. Please pray for these families!
Here are a few pictures that one of our friends in Salatiga has taken (thanks Sean!):
