Safe in an Earthquake
In 2010/11, I did my exchange year in Japan – during “the Big Earth Quake”. In the subsequent nuclear power plant disaster, the town I was staying in was out of the “danger zone” by only 20km. It was protected by a mountain range, which prevented the heavy-metal radioactive particles from getting too close to us. When flights from Japan to Europe were not affordable for me, my father found a “cheap” one. Then, when my flight’s destination was changed to a far away airport, there was one single empty place on a flight with a cooperating airline that would take me directly home.
I wasn’t even a Christian at this time, but when I look back I thank God that he put everything in place to keep me safe and get me home.
