BEFORE and NOW: Photos from the sea wall

BEFORE

In 2011 we sent two teams following the March tsunami that hit the northern coast of Japan. 30 ft high waves hit the undersized sea wall and rushed unhindered at the row of homes that ran in parallel to the sea wall. Though many structures remained standing their integrity was diminished and they had to be removed. Other homes were destroyed with some homes removed completely from their foundation and relocates hundred’s of feet away.

NOW

Today some new homes have been built and others repaired but most dominant is the new sea wall that was increased to over 30 feet hight beyond the height of the tsunami waves.

Japan Mission 2018 - Meet Hannah!

unnamed.jpg

Hi, my name is Hannah Arenales and I am 19 years old. I was raised in a God fearing family with parents that focused on being planted in the Word and living as true followers of Christ.

Since I was very young my parents have always been a part of the Mexico mission trips, translating, and fundraising to support the teams going. Their participation with the Mexico mission trips have heavily influenced me to want to reach those in foreign countries and show them the love of The Lord. I have always felt a heavy desire to go to Asian countries and doing whatever The Lord wills for me.

I don't know how The Lord will use me during this Japan mission trip but I would like to continue what has been started by the missionaries and the work we have done over the past few years. I hope that I will grow a deeper and stronger faith, as well as, more of a dependence in Him than in myself. I don't know what's going to happen during this trip but I'm excited for the things we have planned so far. Any prayers for the team and the people we interact with would be greatly appreciated.
