BGEA in JAPAN: Responding to Crisis ~ Continue to PRAY and Support



I took the video off since it automatically plays but you may view it here...
Billy Graham Evangelistic Association 

"...As the Vice President of Programs and Government Relations for Samaritan’s Purse, Isaacs is working closely with BGEA Associate Director of Asian Affairs Chad Hammond in a joint effort to bring help and hope to hurting people following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami... Reporting by phone Thursday, Isaacs said that the nuclear cloud was keeping him cut off from his team to the north in Sendai.

CNN reported that close to 200,000 people living within a 12-mile radius of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant – the hardest hit of several nuclear plants affected since the 8.9-magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami – had been evacuated. Authorities banned flights over the area...

Isaacs is calling on the Christian community around the world to continue to pray for the recovery efforts. 
Here’s some ways you can pray specifically:
• That Japan’s military will be able to assist the team from Samaritan’s Purse and BGEA transport 93 tons of supplies that arrived Saturday from the airlift.
• For wisdom from the Holy Spirit in all decision-making.
• Continued favor with Japan government officials.
• For much-needed fuel (for trucks).
• For protection from radiation.
• For the people of Japan, who are very fearful and anxious.
• That people will come to see God’s love in spite of their suffering and in the midst of their suffering.

"Despite the challenges our team is facing in Japan, we have much to be thankful for,” Isaacs said. “Please join us in praising God for the help of the U.S. military, Japanese government officials, and local Christians. Thank Him that our charter flight arrived safely in Japan. Thank Him that our team has remained safe and healthy." ~ TO READ MORE of this article or in its entirety, please go HERE

PLEASE PRAY FOR ALL INVOLVED IN THE RESCUE EFFORTS, BOTH SPIRITUALLY and PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY...in every way... there is need for Our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ.

ONE HEART has shared a powerful, poignant post on JAPAN that will stir your HEART to pray.

Mission 4 Monday sadly ended last year as a meme, but I continue to share here and I know others also share various MISSIONS, especially the people above. Check them out!!! Encourage and perhaps join us.
Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
If you are doing something or share someone's MISSION on your blog, please leave your info in the comments anytime! Hopefully others will notice & come visit. THANKS!
