This morning, an AirAsia passenger jet, QZ8501, lost contact with Indonesia air traffic control.
Out of the 162 passengers on board:
- 155 Indonesian
- 3 South Korean
- 1 British
- 1 French

This is the second incident of missing airplanes since MH370, and both took place in Southeast Asia. Search and rescue operations have been dispatched but due to poor weather conditions, they have been halted until tomorrow morning. Many family members have gathered at the airports and are anxiously awaiting for news reports and updates from the officials.
We may not be able to do anything to help with the situation. All we can do is pray for the safety of the passengers on board, pray for them to return home and celebrate the New Year with their loved one, pray for them to be given the chance to continue living…
