a whole lot of shaking going on

so while i was gone, we had an earthquake on sunday morning, a 5.2 in riverside county, then i heard about the one in northern california, the larger 7.0 earthquake out in the ocean that struck on tuesday, and then today on my day off, while i was on the internet, i felt a small rubbling that eventually turned into a larger rubbling and a gift the bishop gave me in kenya, a wooden giraffe fell off my bookshelf. this was like the fourth earthquake i felt since i've been here, but definetly one that i felt the most, and the only one that actually shook something off the shelf. the one today was centered in Yucaipa, CA and had a preliminary rating of a 5.3, and later was recognized as a 4.9. i guess i should be reading about what to do when the big one hits.

Hopefully the "big one" will never hit. Depending on the locations of these earthquakes along the fault line, they could be relieving the pressure that would trigger a massive quake.
If it does hit, though, find a door frame or wherever the building's structure is the strongest and stand in the middle of it.

Hey JR

I am listening to the last LC you guys put on the website and you mentioned something about "I'm limiting myself to one trip a month" and everyone laughed. You were talking about how far kairos has come in a year, and already in 2005, a lot of things have happened. I see phenominal growth in the past six months even. Earthquakes or not, the vision marches on.

and of course, I left town and you (again) manage to slip out of my clutches for getting together. ha!
You now end up waiting for a few months until we can get togethe again.

last, is that trip to Mexico still happening in September?
