Help with Quake/Tsunami relief in Japan
Continuing efforts in earthquake zone...
You've probably seen the videos of the devastation in Japan from the earthquakes and tsunami damage in the Tohoku region of Japan around Sendai, north of Tokyo. Relief efforts, where churches and Christians might have the greatest opportunity to respond are underway now. We can all have a part in sharing Christ's love in a tangible way at times like this.
Trained teams are preparing to do what they can to reach out to those affected by the quake/tsunami in Japan. They will need to pay the costs associated with the work. We can help in the effort regardless of where we are located.
If you like to know more, visit our Mission:JAPAN Facebook page for the latest updates on how to join in the efforts to raise funds to assist those affected by these natural disasters in Japan. Pray that God will reveal himself to the Japanese people in the midst of their painful circumstances. Pray that the relief workers will be able to reflect the love of Jesus with their actions. If you would like to give a financial gift to the efforts of the mission community to GIVE in Jesus' name, you can do so at the Horizon Christian Fellowship website.

In the forums here on Mission: JAPAN, there was a discussion recently regarding outreach to the youth of Japan. The question was whether there is any response among the young people of Japan, to the message of the gospel. This video sheds some light on that question. Enjoy the video and then join us in the forums to discuss ministry in Japan!
Learn Japanese with iKnow
For anyone learning to learn some basic Japanese vocabulary, sounds, characters...etc...there is a free tool that will help you get started! I recommend you cruise on over to www.smart.fm and look for a list that matches your needs. After you have chosen a list, click on the "iKnow" icon to open the program. It is not a substitute for a tutor or language school, but for those who just want to get a start, it is a pretty neat little program...and FREE! :-) Have a look and let me know what you think.
Oh, and a side benefit that I see...my 13 year old daughter is enjoying using iKnow to learn Japanese, so you might consider letting your kids try it!
