I've literally just seen this on the news now and the destruction appears to be considerable... 

We are praying.

The quake was centered very close to my childhood home. My parents went to Sendai, Japan as missionaries when I was nine years old.

Sendai is the largest city in Northern Japan with one million people.

Praying - MSNBC is carrying live coverage from Japan with translation.  I found it via BreakingNews.com.  I am seeing pictures taken at the time of the actual earthquake and the Tsusami that followed.  

Blessings,
Floyd

Thank you so much for sharing. I hadn't even turned on the television this morning, so I didn't even know. Time is truly filled with swift transition. I will certainly continue to keep Japan, along with all others impacted by this earthquake. 

Blessings,

The brother of my church pastor is in charge over Sendai Evangelical Christian Church - http://www.sendaichurch.com/wp/

Although there has been no direct contact with Pastor Rod Thomas and his family, a third party contact indicates that they are alright.

Even so, please pray not only for the Japanese people but also for the congregation of Sendai Church.

Got news of hundreds of continuing tremors of significant magnitude since the initial quake.
250,000 evacuated from area of Fukushima Nuclear Power plant.
Flooding from tsunami went much further inland than news videos have been showing.

Through all of this there is an amazingly small number of human lives lost. The death toll could have been much higher. Still many people's lives have been drastically changed. Prayers are still needed.

Thanks for the reminder!

From news broadcasts there is a great need for water, food, shelter & warmth. Plus i pray that God opens the hearts of the Japanese people to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Thanks, still praying here.

I'm beginning to wonder about this Matthew.  Initially this seemed true, but I read yesterday that the toll may jump to the unimaginable 10,000 +

God have mercy!

I would just like to say that my heart is absolutely broken for Japan right now.

Amen!  We are praying, and we should all be giving as well.

I knew the death count can only go up. It appears their official reports are based on bodies recovered. Watching the videos of the tsunami you can see people inside of many of the cars as they are swept away by the waters. As dense as the population is in Japan it is probable there are already 10's of thousands dead. It will take a long time to even develop lists of the missing.

While the news media focuses on the nuclear power plant there are people without food, water, or shelter, just sitting and waiting on their government to come through for them. The relief efforts are not progressing for lack of gasoline and access to the effected areas. All trains are halted nationwide. Some highways are destroyed. The temperatures dropped and some areas got snow. The structures that are still standing have no electricity. Grocery shelves are empty....

My prayer is that in addition to their physical needs, their hearts be open to the gospel and souls be saved.

Every time I pause in my day to consider Japan I break into fresh tears.  I ate lunch today in a warm and safe house and I gave thanks for it.  But how gladly I would have shared that lunch with someone in Japan!

I've given to worldvision already and will doubtless do so again - but oh how I pray with you that the hunger in their souls to know HIM would pass even the hunger to be fed.

God Save Japan!

I am a Logos forum user and I Live on the main island (Honshu) in the northern most prefecture called Aomori.The earthquake and after shocks were definitely felt up here, and the eastern most side of this prefecture got trashed by the Tsunami. However, I live in a city in the center of this prefecture so we here were spared the effects of the Tsunami, and the earthquake didn't cause much damage here or take any lives in this particular city (at least not that I am aware of). So, I would say I would have to say I and my family here are somewhere between being directly affected and indirectly affected.

Our family lives south of Tokyo near Kamakura and it's a similar situation. Japan is built on electricity and those reactors were needed. So the electricity is out 3 hours daily, along with the trains. But I have a lot of confidence in the Japanese. They're good people and very talented. They'll pull through.

BK:

     Thanks for the details - we will keep you those around you in prayer.

Denise:

     I trust things will not get worse for your family - 

Both of you:

     Do keep us informed if there are prayer needs that we can lift up before our Lord.

Yours because His,

Floyd

Floyd
