An 8.8-magnitude earthquake hit this morning (Saturday, February 27) the Pacific coast of Chile at 3:34 a.m., outside of Cauquenes in the Maule Region, just hours after a 6.9-magnitude one in Japan.

Un terremoto de magnitud 8.8 azoto esta manana (sabado, 27 de febrero) en la costa del Pacifico de Chile a las 3:34 a.m., a las afueras de Cauquenes en la Region del Maule, a solo horas del terremoto de 6.9 en Japon.

Communication with our loved ones in Chile has been extremely slow. No contact through phone/cell/skype. Only through facebook and emails. So far we've heard from one of our children in Coronel who was in Santiago at the time (with his sister), both doing well but they haven't been able to contact their family back home. The Institute Rector that lives in Santiago also wrote that they're all doing well. Another dear family in Santiago chatted with us through facebook and they're also doing well; just broken windows and glasses with the tremors. We're connected through facebook/skype trying to get some more information from any and all of them.

Your prayers and faith in the Lord are our main source of strength right now. Once we can establish communication with the leadership in Mision Chilena we can assess what needs to happen and how our loved ones in the States and Puerto Rico can be of support. We'll keep you posted as information becomes available.

Again, thanks so much for your concern and prayers for Chile, Haiti, and Japan. As we prepare for our relocation process to Spain in the next couple of months, the Bolicks prepare for their upcoming scheduled return to Chile after their US/PR assignment. Your prayers on their behalf are also appreciated.

Las comunicaciones con nuestras familias en Chile han sido extremadamente lentas. Sin contacto por telefono/celulares/skype. Solo por facebook/emails. Al momento uno de nuestros hijos de Coronel que estaba en Santiago (con su hermana), ambos bien pero sin haber podido comunicarse aun con su familia en Coronel. La Rectora del Instituto que vive en Santiago tambien escribio que estan bien. Otra familia querida en Santiago hablo con nosotros por facebook indicando que estan todos bien; solo vidrios y vasos rotos por los temblores. Estamos conectados por facebook/skype tratando de conseguir mas informacion de cualquiera y de todos ellos.

Sus oraciones y fe en el Sennor son nuestra mayor fuente de fortaleza en estos momentos. Una vez establezcamos comunicacion con el liderato de la Mision Chilena podremos evaluar lo que hace falta y como nuestra familia amada en EE.UU. y Puerto Rico podran ser de apoyo. Les mantendremos informados segun tengamos informacion.

Nuevamente, muchas gracias por su preocupacion y oraciones por Chile, Haiti y Japon. Mientras nos preparamos para mudarnos a Espanna en los proximos meses, los Bolick se preparan para su regreso a Chile segun pautado tras completar su asignacion en EE.UU./Puerto Rico. Sus oraciones por ellos tambien son muy apreciadas.
