Greetings from Ishinomaki! As I mentioned in my previous post, we don’t have much time for blogging but I wanted to write a little bit about our trip. We are thankful that we have been able to meet many Japanese Christians, long-term missionaries, and short-term volunteers laboring here in Ishinomaki during our short stay. God is at work in this city! Our heads are swimming with an overload of information and we are thankful that God has answered our prayers with regards to networking with a good number of Christian leaders. We have met a good number of people in the past few days and had many encouraging conversations with workers from Asian Access, the Be One Network, Help Tohoku, Reach Global, and Mission to the World.  It is one thing to read about what God is doing in this city on the internet and another thing altogether to see it up close! 🙂
I wrote a post on my personal blog about our first few days here if you’d like to read it: http://lovejapandanielle.wordpress.com
