Ministry Opportunities

May 18, 2012


Developing a few specific tsunami recovery ministry opportunities in the southern part of Miyagi prefecture (near or in Sendai city) is taking longer than expected. We are trying to focus on the south side of Sendai city and even further south toward Fukushima prefecture.

So far, it looks like our ministries could include the following:

  • starting a quilting circle on May 23 in the apartment of a tsunami displaced family living nearby a temporary housing center in Wakabayashi-ku, Sendai
  • holding mother and young children meetings once or twice a month in another temporary housing center also in Wakabayashi-ku, Sendai
  • leading sewing classes in a few other temporary housing centers
  • helping farmers in Iwanuma-shi (south of Sendai, near the Sendai airport) cleanse their fields of seawater salt, test their fields and vegetables for radiation levels, and construct a distribution facility for their produce.

We are hoping that a few of these kinds of ministries might provide opportunities for short term missionaries to join us in sewing/quilting projects or in construction.

Our focus remains on developing opportunities for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and for linking our tsunami recovery ministry with church planting. (dale little)
