3.11 Memorial service

It has now been over a year since the earthquake and tsunami. Ishinomaki and all of northern Japan has face many difficulties in the long road of recovery. We at Grace Mission Tohoku along with Be-One, Watanoha Christ Church, Calvery Chapel, E-Free and Samaritan's Purse along with the community came together to remember those whose lives were taken and reflect over the past year. It was a good time of sharing of testimonies, singing, crying, and fellowship. Over a 150 people community people came to the event. God really blessed the time and gave us the opportunity to share compassion and love. Below are some pictures from the event.
Some very dear neighbors and friends. They have been through a lot.

Satoshi with some more great neighbors!

Lorna with a lady that I remember from the first time I went to Ishinomaki. She has become a great friend!

Lots of people! :)

The scarf behind me was made by people from all over the world. When they added to the scarf they prayed for Japan and the rebuilding of Japan.
