Any suggestions for when I am writing to my child in Ecuador after the earthquake? As far as I know she is safe but certainly would know about the devastation. However, I have not heard definitely about her welfare. I do not want to cause any further fear by what I write but would like her to know I care.

I wrote to my three children in Ecuador yesterday. Even though Compassion staff reassured me that my children were safe, they encouraged me to write to my children and let them know I was thinking about them and praying for them and their country.
This is what I wrote:  
I want you to know that you and your beautiful country of Ecuador are on our hearts and in our prayers after the huge earthquake and aftershocks that have hit Ecuador. I do not know if your community was affected. I hope not. I pray you are safe. I share Isaiah 54:10 with you, "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed," says the LORD, who has compassion on you."
I did a Google image search and found a "Pray for Ecuador" superimposed over the Ecuadoran flag. 
The rest of my letter was just a paragraph about what is going on in my life, and then I ended with: 
My prayers are with you Luz, with you and your family. Hold fast to your faith in Jesus Christ, you are a daughter of the King! God bless you and keep you safe.
