April 15. On Thursday the 14th, the warehouse portion of the JAG “Eastern Japan Disaster Relief Center” (the lodging area will open after the May holidays) opened! Pastor Funatsu of the JAG executive committee came to Sendai to sign the building’s rental contract and was accompanied by two Pastors from Convey of Hope who signed as witnesses.
I would be grateful if you would rejoice with us over the opening of this warehouse by praying that through it we will be able to even more boldly be involved in the relief and recovery work.
On Friday the 15th representatives from Kanazawa Christ Church, City Vision Glory Church, Evangel Family Church of Singapore, Shin Matsudo Revival Church, Izumi Fukuin Christ Church, and Convoy of Hope (totaling 30 people from 5 churches and one organization) came and ministered by removing mud and cleaning up in the Akai neighborhood of Higashi Matsushima city. Tomorrow we will continue with our 5th hot meal distribution as well as passing out relief goods, free haircuts given by the Teen Challenge group of Hachioji Christ Church, free baths and more mud removal.
Please pray that the Lord’s work of healing, comfort and salvation would be upon the people in the disaster areas.
