Warmer bodies and warmer hearts

Tohoku Care has been engaged in a project to make 1000 fleece throws for survivors living in temporary housing in Iwate Prefecture, northeast Japan. After fellowship together around a table or sitting across from each other on the floor making the blankets, the residents have been encouraged as they tell their story of what happened to them on March 11,2011 and how their lives have changed following the tsunami. They leave these times together with their hearts warmed and a blanket to keep their bodies warm during the cold winter days!!  Pray for those who were ministered to during the project to have hearts that are open to the gospel.

Over 140,000 people are still in temporary housing, some will be there for several more years. They need friends and community; pray they will meet Christ, who can be their best friend.
