On March 11, a massive 8.9 magnitude earthquake struck near the coast of northern Japan. The earthquake was followed by a devastating tsunami tidal wave. The two combined for the worst disaster to strike Japan since World War II.

The Disciple Nations Alliance national organization in Japan, Friends with the Voiceless International, and their leadership team of Eisuke Kanda, Shun Jinnai and Midori Yanagisawa, responded to the disaster with a strategy known as “For Such a Time as This: Seek the Remnants for Building His Kingdom in Fear-Stricken Areas of Fukushima Prefecture.” The project involves:

  • Standing with local churches so they know they are not alone.
  • Casting vision for God’s Kingdom using the Vision Conference.
  • Serving affected communities together with local churches.
  • Training church leaders to rebuild communities based on a Kingdom vision.

As of May 1, DNA champions, supporting churches, and national and regional leaders have sent over $100,000 USD through Friends with the Voiceless to support this vital work.

Updates on their work are available here and here.
