There is no adequate way to express the sadness of watching peoples homes, in some cases with them inside, destroyed and the grief that you feel.
As in any tragic situation like this we should pray and not doubt that our prayers are heard. We should help where we can by giving, like Food for the Hungry.
These things should bring us closer to the God of sovereign purposes that go beyond us and to the gospel. Jesus Christ is the Lord and Savior that make these situations bearable. Because he has suffered unto death he does in every way relate to those who are broken and suffering.
May God grant repentance to many in Japan and those around the world because of this tragedy.
Your boasting friend,
