Japan Tsunami

I have a nephew that lives in Japan, he teaches English at a school near Tokyo. Josh and his girlfriend have been caught up in the quake and tsunami. They are okay, not injured, but don't the condition of their home as they are stranded in a train station. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
