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.

Photos from the planning of a seminar where one can learn the flow of disaster relief - establishment of relief bases when a disaster occurs, coordination of volunteer activities, actual on-site work, and development of regional church networks during "peacetime". The team of instructors will include experienced staff from JIFH and Operation Blessing Japan. The first seminar is scheduled for July. Today I received valuable advice from the JEA Aid Coordinating Chair and regional network leaders.
