We have friends in Norway and Jack posted this note on his FB today
Thanks you for all your greetings...churches were open right across the land of Norway for people to pray and find comfort- Thousands and thousands went into these churches for the first time. There were many tears during the Sunday services including mine. Not just churches but impromptu gatherings in town squares across the land...flowers, candles songs and prayers were the norm. To see the King and queen of Norway- weeping so openly and hugging folk was very touching when many VIP's are so used to displaying the stiff upper lip. Also our town was hit by incredible heavy rain last night and roads and buildings have been devastated. including roads on our farm. It seems even the earth is groaning after the events of this weekend. There is a long way to go in rebuilding not just roads but more importantly lives, hope and joy of Norway... so please continue to pray for this small peace loving nation.
