Saturday evening was an exciting night for John. He was invited to conduct a home Bible study in a local neighborhood. A group of 10 believers had gathered together to study, sing and share testimonies. Several are new believers. It was a great evening and a highlight for the weekend.
The meeting actually started at 8:00 p.m. and lasted until nearly midnight. When John returned home Debbie immediately asked about the strong tremor. John didn't feel a thing. After a little research on the internet Debbie showed where the earthquake, centered fairly close to Lima, was 5.3 on the Richter scale. (This is considered a moderate tremor) It happened at exactly 8:12. The next day at church Debbie asked several people what they thought of the strong quake. Nobody else felt it! It was strong enough to wake up the girls. It was strong enough to give Debbie a scare. Apparently Debbie and the seismologist were the only ones aware of what was really going on!
