We want to thank all of you who continue to pray for the ministry of The 3.11 Iwate Church Network.
This morning, at 5:59 a.m., there was an earthquake with its epicenter off the coast of Fukushima prefecture. Those of us in Iwate also felt the ground shake. With this, tsunami warnings were issued across the entire coastline (and in fact, tsunamis were observed). Trains stopped operating. So far, we have not received any information about any of our staff or cooperating churches, organizations having been negatively affected. All tsunami warnings issued have been lifted in the afternoon.
