Setting up near Sendai

This morning Bill and Carol Paris, Joyce Kitano, and Amanda Fosburg set off for Takayama. Takayama is located northwest of Sendai near Shichigahama. (The area on the lower left is Takayama.)

They will assess the possibility of using a missionary's cabin in the community as a point for relief efforts. The community is located right on the coastline and was in the path of the tsunami. The community is fortunately located on a mountain that provided some protection from the tsunami. According to the mayor, there has been no running water, electricity, cell phone reception, Internet and landlines since the earthquake. Those who travel there will need to take their own supplies of kerosene for heat, gasoline for fuel, tools, food, etc.
