Wycliffe Japan Joins the Relief Effort

Many of us watched in horror as the videos and photos of the most recent earthquake and tsunami hit Japan last week. For those of us who have colleagues working in Japan, we were relieved to hear that all of our members are safe so far.

If you are like me, you are probably wondering how you can help and if it will make a difference.Wycliffe Japan has already joined in the relief efforts. They have teamed up with local churches in the area and have already packed up specific items needed in the area hardest hit in Sendai. A local church in Sendai sent them a list with very specific items to send and will be working at dispersing the items they receive.

If you would like to send a donation, you may send it to our Wycliffe USA headquarters and mark it “Japan: Disaster Relief Funds“. Here is the link online where you can donate: http://www.wycliffe.org/Give.aspx

You can get more updates on the situation on either of Wycliffe’s Websites www.wycliffe.net or www.thewordislife.net

Please keep praying! They have a long hard road ahead of them. What a wonderful opportunity for the body of Christ to come alongside those who are hurting so badly.

    Hi Ken,
    Thank you for sharing this news. I’m glad that your colleagues are safe. I have family there and they too are safe since they live more inland Tokyo area. I just pray now about the radioactive material in the air that now affects the water supply that people drink and also can be passed to babies that are nursing if their mother’s have consumed water that is contaminated. It’s a really difficult situation. And the issues are now after the devastation and how to rebuild homes, and also find a way to cap off the nuclear radioactivity. We will continue to pray.

      I know, Janie. Anne and I thought about you when this first happened. We see the devastation and often wonder how can they ever bring life back to normal, especially after how the radiation has impacted the area. It’s so very sad. On the other hand, I was impressed with the resolve of the government and the people to not give up, to bounce back. Let’s continue to pray, give, and do whatever else we can do to help.
