Some of you may be aware of a network called Churches Helping Churches which has been very instrumental in assisting pastors in the Tohoku area with support, retreats, and other ministries to keep them from falling apart or burning out. They have been partnering with Asian Access and JCGI Network all across the Tohoku area.
One of those Japanese pastors cooperating with them is Yoshi Ohari which shares a thank you to all who have helped. He shares with many of us a vision for what God can do through this tragedy. Pastor Ohari is a friend of mine and also is the key leader in the South Tokyo Church Multiplication Network which includes the Crossroad church. I cannot wait to get back to Tokyo to be a part of Crossroad as they multiply their church.
