The Triple Disasters: One Year Later

February 29th, 2012 by John

One year after the triple disasters finds nearly 20,000 dead, 400,000 displaced, over 1 million buildings destroyed, and very little rebuilding. Much of the debris has been removed, equivalent to 120 years of the whole nation’s garbage. Encouragement has come as where Ishinomaki City had 7 churches before the disaster, now it has four more, and counting! Converge Disaster Response ministry is now focusing on long-term help for people and building community. The Samaritan Purse rebuilding project will soon be completed with 400 homes rebuilt! March 2-4 will bring Franklin Graham to Japan for a series of meetings in Sendai to celebrate hope. Pray that all believers helping to alleviate suffering would be re-energized for more ministries to victims.
