News from Japan (part 3)

Posted on Monday, April 18th 2011 by Machiko in Japan Distaster

Dear Friends,
My father wanted me to convey his thanks...Thank YOU! He actually read my emails (that's a BIG surprise because he's not that good in English) and then called me. When he heard of your responses and he was SOOOO encouraged by you and for all your prayers!
He had some news he wanted to share with you...
1. Please continue to pray as a group from JTJ seminary (Jesus To Japan: founded by my father and his friend Rev Kishi in Japan) plans to enter the Tohoku area in the next days.
[Just a brief review of Japan geography for those that are not familiar with Japan geography (I'm really bad at it myself) Tohoku is the north east section of the main Japan Islands. I think we're more familiar with the Kanto (Tokyo) and Kansai (Osaka) areas. As you probably know but I had to look it up that Senndai is but one of the prefectures that comprise the Tohoku area.]
2. There is a church that meets at the Ochanomizu Christian Center. They have three services every Monday and these services have been devoted to praying for the people there in the entire Tohoku area and for those who are endeavoring to go into the area to help.
3. There's also a small group that stand at the nearby train station with a big sign that says: "God bless Japan" in hopes that people will stop and talk, be encouraged, realize that God cares...that we, Christians, do CARE.
4. My father plans to take 1000 of this newly published book "The Power of the Bible" to pass out to those in the Tohoku Area. The organization BFP and MOM are both putting in 500,000 yen (that's roughly $5000 each to fund this effort.
My father wanted you to know that what ever it is and no matter how small, people in Japan are also doing whatever they can for the people of Japan, especially for those in the Tohoku area...and taking every opportunity to spread God's word and His GREAT love...
My parents return on Monday April 25 to Hawaii. Please continue to pray that God will keep all those in Japan in His hands; That each of their and our endeavors to help, no matter how big or small will impact each person in the Tohoku area; that God would take it and bless it and multiply it for this Glory!
Thank you for your prayers! Thank you especially to those of you who have sent in finanical support. 100% of the money you sent in will be given directly to the people and churches in the Tohoku area.
I'm only mentioning it because people have asked but if you'd like to send in your support for the Japan disaster relief fund, please send it to:
