Japan Tsunami Page Was Written by Peter O'Neill
5 years ago on a quite March day... the world in Japan turned upside down. In the Land of the rising sun it was a crushing event that threatened to put the lights here ... out forever. We take a moment to remember the events of March 11th, 2011.
Long after we are all gone and the books written of this event have turned to dust.... folks will still remember this day. In the period of 10 minutes two massive quakes struck back to back... just off the coast of North Eastern Japan.
When asked why God allowed this to happen one of the top Buddist Monks responded that, "possibly we were too proud and too over confident in our abilities and not trusting and not looking to God enough".
As an example it was mentioned
how one professor had gotten on television 2 weeks before the event and commented that the
newly finished sea wall in Kesanuma... "Could Not Even Be Breached By God." (It was the sentiment of the greater population at the time.) Needless to say... the sea wall was breached and in this town and the connecting town of
Minami San Riku over 13,000 people perished. We do not purport to say
why this happened, but we do strongly ask for your prayers that this
country... very humbled by this and other disasters... that they could find and direct their
hearts to God and that they could find Jesus who is the only real hope
and salvation that any of us have.
One day we will all experience our own personal Tsunami... when the trials of life and frailty of these mortal bodies shall wash over us all and take us from this world as we know it. The only real hope we have is in the Lord. May God help us to share that with the world and be an instrument to get out that message of hope. Thank You again for taking the time to read this. Please keep us and all the Missionaries here in Japan in your prayers. With Thanks From The Land Of The Rising Sun...
