13220695_10153643073272358_3672241245465647417_oApologies for the lack of updates during May (and for the lack of translation updates for the past two months!). But, our ministry has kept pressing on across all our locations.

The work to move the community plaza structure in Yamada operated by “Ippo Ippo Iwate” is running late by around two weeks. As a result, re-opening is likely to be delayed into July. Please continue to pray for this work and that all the necessary documentation will be completed in a timely manner as well. Please also continue to pray that Ippo Ippo Iwate will be able to follow up on those who were visitors to the community plaza during this period.

Please pray for God’s comfort upon Ps Dawn Birkner and upon her family as they mourn the loss of her father. Ps Dawn ministers in the Kitasanriku area.

People continue to move out of kasetsu-s across the region. There are many different individual issues that arise from this, for example: adjusting to a new environment, dealing with isolation, the fear towards what the future holds. Across our locations, we continue to come alongside the people through activities that we organize at the assembly halls of reconstruction housing, and through the various relationships that have been built up over time. We are aware that the support being provided to those still left in the kasetsu-s is dwindling, and so we reaffirm that we will continue our ministry in that area as well.

Please continue to pray for this ministry.

An update on our activity during May and prayer points

Apologies for the lack of updates during May (and for the lack of translation updates for the past two months!). But, our ministry has kept pressing on across all our locations. The work to move the community plaza structure in Yamada operated by “Ippo Ippo Iwate” is running late by around two weeks. As a result, re-opening is likely to be delayed into July.

Fifth 3.11 Memorial

We apologize for the lack of updates in February so far. This post will be about the 3.11 Memorial that is coming next month. 5 years are about to pass since the Great East Japan Disaster was triggered by the powerful earthquake on March 3, 2011. We would like to encourage you to pray to our Lord for His help and comfort upon the communities of the disaster zone that are still in the midst of their road to recovery. We would also like to encourage you to pray for the churches of the disaster zone, and even as we reflect upon our path of having drawn up alongside those who suffered, let us pray for direction in our days ahead.

4th week of Jan

o, we’re in the last week of Jan. Thank you for upholding our work in our various locations across the tsunami zone and our staff in your prayers this past week. We held a Core Members’ Meeting on the 27th and discussed the coming 3.11 Memorial (the 5th anniversary from that terrible disaster) and various matters beyond April this year. Please continue to pray and support us. We will continue to line up alongside the people and the communities of the disaster zone, and to continue to help build up and plant churches. We hope to inform you about each of these things in due course.
