Three YWAM Japan National Office team members and one Japanese friend went to Sendai to volunteer through the Japan Emergency Team (JHelp). The Japanese friend who is a chiropractor gave free massages at a large evacuation center in Fukushima City and at three evacuation shelters in Sendai. The YWAM Japan National Office team invited people to take advantage of the massages and talked to people waiting in line.
Also during the outreach, one team member helped to clean and prepare meals for all of the volunteers staying at a Sendai church. Two other team members joined JHelp volunteers to shovel mud from the driveway of a house in Ishinomaki and remove the couple’s car from where the tsunami had carried it to the back of their property.

On Sunday, they worked with a non-Christian NPO shoveling mud in the yard of a temple in Wakabayashi-ku in Sendai. It was a privilege to be able to pray and praise the Lord there.
