YWAM Tokyo & YWAM Nagano Outreach to Ishinomaki, Miyagi Prefecture, June 1-7, 2011

Team: 1 YWAM Tokyo team member (plus his son), 1 YWAM Nagano team member, and 2 from a church in Tokyo.
Boats washed inland in the Ishinomaki area.
Outreach Activities
1st day- We shoveled sludge/mud at a Buddhist temple and graveyard behind an elementary school.
2nd day- Takidashifood distributionat a junior high school with a church from Shizuoka.
3rd day- Removed debris from a house which was close to the fish market.
4th day- Shoveled sludge/mud with Tokyo Baptist Church volunteers.
5th day- Cleaned a house for an elderly woman; power-washed a house.

Fish ended up between the roof and the rain gutter.
*One of the team felt the victims were still in the process of dealing with the pain they had just gone through. Yet, God spoke to her that He is opening up the HEAVEN over that area for those who seek Him.
*The team got to talk to a lot of people who were open to a relationship with Jesus. That it happened everywhere they went, so that it seemed almost too weird.
*One of the team thinks that those who volunteer from outside of the area need to be really sensitive to what God is telling them. Otherwise they could crush people who know that life is the only thing they have right now.
