June 24, a new wonder of the world. 
 “Sky Park” Marina Bay Sands is located on the 200-meter height on the three skyscrapers,

Imagine trying to build something like this.  What an amazing structure! 
This building featured on the Discovery Channel showing the construction details and challenges.

Our prayers should not cease for Japan.  This was such a devastating earthquake and we need to remember those who lost family members and friends in this disaster.

It’s hard for us as Americans to wrap our head around such a horrific disaster and we need to continue to lift them up in prayer,  as they continue to search for survivors.
