SUBJECT: Japan Hokkaido Earthquake News – Deep Condolences from the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan (PCT)

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ

On behalf of the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan (PCT) we write these few words to convey how stunned we were to hear the news of yet another major natural disaster that has struck your nation this time the Earthquake in Hokkaido. The media reports have been coming in the last hours and the devastating effect of the 6.6 earthquake has become more evident.

The PCT can but assure you of our concerns – it is deeply distressing to see your country and people experience one calamity after another and our hearts go out to you. As ever, we pray for the families whose loved once have been taken away from them so swiftly and we extend our heartfelt condolences the grieving families. At the same time we pray for your government and all involved in the disaster response teams.

The Lord is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one. Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever. Psalm 28:8-9 (NIV)

When your respective churches have related updates of the situation do please let us know so we can share and inform our members.

Yours sincerely in Christ

Rev. Hsieh Pao-Tsan
