Prayers for a fellow blogger

I am an avid reader of Abby's Blog. Abby is a 16 year old girl who is on a solo sailing trip around the world. Her blog describes the challenges and adventures she's faced on her journey.

Unfortunately Abby is feared to be lost at sea after her crew lost contact with her and her emergency beacons were set off.
You can read more about the story and rescue efforts over here.

In the meantime please say prayers for Abby and her family that she is found safe and sound.

**********UPDATE 6/11/10 **********
They found her. She is safe and they will have a boat to her location in about 20 hours or so.


  1. This just made my heart stop. All my best wishes and thoughts are with the family.

  2. I heard that today on the news and I hope she is ok and they find her to help her if she needs it.
