We would like to send a prayer to all of the victims who have suffered from the earthquake that struck North Eastern Japan. There are many people who have suffered losses unimaginable, and still others that live in fear from radiation and aftershocks.
We hope and pray that people in Japan can live a normal life again, and although the task may seem daunting, we support the rebuilding of Japan.
