Summer Update

Wow! Life for the past 6 months has been a whirlwind.
Here is a tiny snap shot of those months(more updates to come!):
May through September we had almost 600 people, around 50 teams come through the organization that I am currently working with Grace Mission Tohoku.  My job was to coordinate the teams, their schedules, and their work during their stay here in Ishinomaki Japan.
It was a huge blessing to the recovery work here in Ishinomaki and surrounding towns! We helped fix up over 30 homes, facilitated events at 6 different temporary housing, participated in 3 summer festivals, kids basketball camp, flower projects, cook-outs, concerts, cafes. The list is endless.

Morning Devotion- Sa chan translating for me

Basketball camp- over 60 kids attended!

Japanese university students came to volunteer!

Working together with Samaritan's Purse carpenters, Be-One(another Christian group near by) and Tokyo Japanese College students.

L.A. and Detroit Teams!
These teams are a small picture of everyone that came this summer!
