1 On March 11 Japan’s landmass actually shifted by several meters during the enormous earthquake

2 Afterwards a horrific tsunami struck the North-Eastern coast of Japan

3 Almost everything along a stretch of about 200km of coastline was destroyed

4 The people of Miyagi Province were dumbfounded

5 Hundreds of fires broke out in the midst of the flood waters

6 Motor cars and aeroplanes were tossed about like toys near Sendai Airport

7 Enormous devastation within seconds

8 Rescue workers face huge challenges day in and day out (in icy weather)

9 Searching for something or somebody amongst the debris

10 More than 6000 people reported dead, more than still missing – numbers still rising

11 One of 2200 disaster-shelters for almost victims

12 Queuing and waiting for hours to buy food – shelves are emptying.

13 The raw agony of loss along with the trauma is heart-breaking

14 Thousands of people have lost EVERYTHING

15 Large-scale nuclear power disaster heightens fear

16 Radio-active radiation is at present a life- threatening risk for millions, many have left the country already

17 This 4 month old baby was found alive after 3 days in the debris and mud...

18 Her family had searched anxiously for 3 days

19 The emergency call from Japan is unmistakable… And in this disaster-stricken country there is only about 1% Christians. They are your brothers and sisters who, with millions of people from Japan, need your support.

20 Please pray that from this misery and heartbreaking agony countless people will know for the first time: “Suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope; and hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.” (Romans 5:3-5)

21 Thank you very much for the support that we, as missionaries and church of Japan have already received from you… It keeps us strong!
