I have just returned from our time up in Tohoku. It has been a rewarding and emotinally exhausting time. I am so thankful for the opportunity I’ve had to go up and minister — I know there are many across the world who wish they had the opportunity to do so but couldn’t. Thankful for Eric staying back with the kids for these five days so that I could go up with the Hawaii team.
My friend Dr. Sharon is the one who had the vision to bring the counseling team from Hawaii. She has worked very hard to pull the team together, to respect each member’s expectations, gifts, and hopes, and to listen to God for what the team needs to be doing. Below is her update on our time up in Ishinomaki. I have more to say and write, but little time to do so until things calm down here a bit, so I will let her wonderful email and photos share with you what we – and Jesus – have been about.
