Japan Earthquake update and pictures from UCCJ

Dear UCCJ friends,

Here is the UCCJ update as of March 24, 2011:

1. Local Churches

  • Hachinohe Konakano Church
    One member lost the house by the tsunami.
  • Shinsei Kamaishi Church (Cf. The first three photos as attached.)
    A team of an NGO "Crash Japan" came to the church and rearranged everything inside.
  • Ishinomaki Eiko Church
    The death of a member is confirmed.
  • Sendai Kita Church
    One member is still missing.
  • Sendai Kawadaira Church
    One member lost the house by the tsunami.
  • Sendai Kita 3-bancho Church --- where the CGMB missionary, Rev. Jeffrey Mensendiek, attends.
    Seven members are still missing.
  • Sendai Higashi Church
    The church has hosted fifteen refugees, both members and non-members.
  • Sendai Itsutsubashi Church --- where the CGMB missionary, Rev. David Murchie, attends.
    Five members are still missing.
  • Sendai Minami Church
    The church has hosted thirteen refugees.
  • Miyagino Aisen Church
    The church has hosted sixteen refugees, but has no more food available.
  • Iwaki Church
    A staff of a related nursery school died on the day of earthquake, while communicating with the kids' parents.
    Another staff of a related nursery school is still missing.

2. The story of the tsunami survivor (Cf. The fourth photo as attached.)

The survivor spent the night on the roof of a three-story building while snowing.
The Kyodan team of four pastors gave him a ride from the coast area to Sendai City on Monday, March 14.
No wonder his colleagues bursted into joy when he arrived at his company, because his presence had never been confirmed before.

Sincerely,

Teruki Takada,

staff, Commission on Ecumenical Ministries
The United Church of Christ in Japan (Kyodan)
