Pray for Western Japan after floods

There is widespread damage after torrential rains hit a huge swath of Western Japan for several days. Please pray for rescue for those still stranded, shelter for the hundreds of thousands who are displaced or evacuated, comfort for the families of over 90 who have died and over 50 who are still missing, and safety for the first responders. Also pray for the Lord’s wisdom for CRASH and other disaster relief organizations who are assessing the most strategic ways we can help.

Also, please visit the Financial Support page and consider donating to help with our relief efforts.

Trip to Hita Base (Northern Kyushu)

CRASH Japan sent 2 volunteers to Kyushu DRC Hita base. Today they went to Asakura city, one of the most devastated areas in Fukuoka, due to the heavy rain 3 weeks ago. They helped clean up a house of a gentleman & his daughter. Their house had been totally covered in mud. One CRASH volunteer served as a chaplain. She visited a shelter nearby and listened to several survivors’ stories listening to their traumatic stories. An old lady told of when the flood came in her home she was so afraid and just trembling in a blanket. CRASH Japan continues to send psychological and spiritual caregivers to the survivors. Please help CRASH Japan with your prayers and financial support.

Volunteering for the 2017 floods in Kyushu

For response to the Kyushu flooding disaster that occurred in July 2017:

CRASH Japan is in cooperation with the Kyushu Christian Disaster Relief Center for sending volunteers. Those who want to volunteer in Fukuoka/Oita, please contact the Hita base of Kyushu Christian Disaster Relief Center. (Japanese language ability required.)

Kyushu Christian Disaster Relief Center has established a base in Hita City in Oita Prefecture for the current effort of disaster relief, and they are recruiting volunteers. With Pastor Takesaki of Hita Gospel Christ Church as director, they desire to support Hita, Asakura in Fukuoka, Higashi-Minemura, and other locations that were affected.

To volunteer, go to http://kyusyuchristdrc.wix.com/kumamoto or contact by phone (080-3997-3255) or email (kcdrc.hita@gmail.com).

Note: Although CRASH can support non-Japanese speakers, the Kyushu Center functions in Japanese, so strong conversational Japanese will be required for volunteers. If you cannot speak Japanese but want to help, please consider donating.

震災から2年が経過しましたが、仮設住宅での支援活動が続いています。心のケアの働きは、緊急支援と変わらず大切なものです。

引き続き熊本もお祈りに覚えてください。

今日(21日)も秋空の下、三ヶ国からの奉仕者たちと共に瓦礫の片付けと運搬をしました。
Worked with 8 volunteers from Sapporo, Korea and Oregon. Volunteers are wanted.

今日、神さまが送ってくださったのは8人。ボランティアは、札幌福音自由教会の鍛冶先生ご夫妻、韓国CCCの3人の大学生、アメリカのオレゴン州からの横井先生チーム3人。
リーダーの弓削さん(OBJ)と私を合わせて10人で、瓦礫をトラックに積み込み、集積場まで運びました。ボランティアが与えられ、助けを待っている方々に届いていけるように続けてお祈りしていきましょう。

 岡山キリスト災害支援室での災害ボランティア支援活動2日目。この日は、3チームでそれぞれの個人宅に派遣され、室内の清掃活動などに従事しました。クラッシュ・チームはオペレーションブレッシングの伊東リーダーの指示の元、ある大きなお宅の最終仕上げの清掃作業を担当させていただきました。真備の街中をみても、プロの大工やリフォーム業者の姿はあっても、平日のボランティアの姿はほとんど見かけませんでした。被災した自宅をリフォームするにしても、公費解体を待っている方々にとっても、家の中の家財などは自分達で撤去しなければならず、現地の人々の要望に十分応えるにはまだボランティアの力が必要です。
 岡キ災の働きも広江ベースは9月末で縮小し、真備町に新しい拠点となるベースを開設する予定です。今後の動向は、岡キ災のFBをご覧下さい。
 さまざまな働きの移行期間にある現地ベースを覚えて、引き続き祈りたいと思います。
