Dear Family and Friends,

Dan, Dedachi and Rich Rainsford are leaving in about an hour to head north to a town named Iwaki, just 30 miles south of Fukushima (sight of the nuclear plant).

Japan Update #02 Tohoku Earthquake 2011

5:36 pm #2
Just now, 2.5 hours later, huge fire we can see in the petrol/chemical factories along the bay.

Now, big tremor, about the 5th time… going outside (not as big as first)… okay it stopped.

We are getting some folks and vans ready to go help somewhere if we can, hard hit coastal areas to the northeast, if needed tonight or tomorrow.

We keep praying for God to send whatever needed to “shake” Japan and wake up Japan from their spiritual slumber. May this be used for his glory. God is so big, and powerful. We are feeling these huge tremors 200 miles away from the epicenter. incredible.

We are used to earthquakes… Japan is used to them… part of daily life here… but not one like this.

Dan
