    Too Hot Prayer Warriors....

    Please pray for my wife and two of my daughters. In about 12 hours they are due to fly out of the terminal at the Beijing airport where a bomb was detonated a couple of hours ago. It appears to be an isolated incident (I hope). Also, please pray for anyone that may have been hurt by the bomb and the bomber. Please pray for safe travel for my ladies.

    Prayers to you.

    Doesn't make it easier but from a practical standpoint there's probably no safer airport in the world the next few days because of the explosion. Hope your girls have safe travel.

    Just saw a report that the air quality there is so bad, the life expectancy has dropped five and a half years. Getting out of there, is a good idea.

    Looks like just one guy, who only hurt himself.

    All. Thank you for the prayers. My ladies just landed at LAX and are rushing to get to their connection. If all goes well they should be back here in Austin around 6pm local time.

    Beijing was a great place to go for vacation. The people are great, the food is wonderful and exotic and there is so many things to see and do. It was my first trip in several years.

    I look forward to chatting with my wife regarding what she might have heard really happened with the bomber. One thing I am confident of is that what the press in China said happened was probably not the full story. Hopefully, the only person hurt was the bomber.
