Dan Iverson, my team leader, and two Japanese men left at midnight in a rented truck loaded with water, gas, and various supplies for the victims of the earthquake and tsunami. They arrived at 5:30 a.m. in Iwaki, about 30 miles south of the Fukushima nuclear reactor that exploded. They are partnering with a church there to distribute supplies to evacuees who are staying in an elementary school. Our hope is to continue partnering with this church in the next year so that together we may be the gospel through our compassion and through our words.
Reports continue to worsen, with estimates of 10,000 killed in the tsunami. Prime Minister Kan has stated that this is the most serious crisis to hit Japan since World War II.
Please continue to pray that God will work in the hearts of thousands, and even millions of Japanese people, that they might become a new generation of Christians and that Japan might become a missionary-sending nation!
