Last Sunday, we had a prayer meeting with Tohoku Aid and B1 Team at our base in Ishinomaki. In April and in June they had held large-scale prayer meetings down in Osaka, called Hope for Tohoku, where people shared their experiences of serving and prayed for the Tohoku region and the people that they were ministering to. This time they decided to have the Hope for Tohoku up here at our base.
We got to hear from many of the community leaders and friends that their teams had helped and pray for them and this community. It was a powerful time of seeing how God has worked with the view to see what we should do from here on out. Some of the points that were brought up from the local leaders were: care for the hearts of the next generation–the kids, don’t forget about us and you have been a blessing to this community.
We had over 65 people attended this prayer meeting, worshiping and praying together. Most of the Japanese people from the community were not believers, but they still said, “make sure to invite us next time.”
Thank you Chad and everyone who put so much work into this!
