From Various A/G Missionaries

The following are various Japan missionaries' FaceBook posts and emails:
Bill Paris in Saitama Prefecture (Our prayer coordinator and also for CRASH, another relief agency):  
Joyce Kitano in Tokyo: We've had a lot of aftershocks today--one in the middle of our Bible Study at the Univ of Tokyo and then about 6 or 7 after that throughout the afternoon and evening. Tonight at the Gospel Workshop at our church I gave a message on "Peace in the midst of a Shaking World" and a couple of the non-Christians were tearing up. Am praying for the reality of that peace in all of our lives.
Kathryn Humphreys in Waco, Saitama Prefecture: So glad I no longer have to go to the grocery store early to buy milk!
Juan Carlos Gonzalez in Fukuoka, Fukuoka Prefecture: Update from the JAG network: At Iwaki AG (Fukushima Prefecture.), one member who was temporarily missing, was found back home a while ago. He/she says that water is available at his/her place now. As electricity is available, too, he/she can stay there...
Shelley Carl in Bronx, New York (Soon to return to Tokyo, Japan to help with relief efforts): Following the earthquake 10 days ago in Japan my friend was told not to come back to work until today. Train lines were down, & they needed to conserve energy. She went back to work today and found her building was damaged. She told me that Tokyo Disneyland had a lot of damage and it is closed. There is so much going on in the country that something like Tokyo Disneyland being closed is not even reported in the news. 

Hirokatsu Yoshihara, Japan A/G Missionary serving in the Philippines:
Tonight, I will move to Manila and be engaged in editorial work of the urgent Japanese edition of OneHope (aka Book of Hope) from tomorrow to Saturday. They say they are going to publish 200 thousand copies in the initial run. Please pray that the edition will be filled with the Lord's comfort and encouragement. Pray also for Rev. Cina Silva, the editor-in-chief.
