Japan Disaster Diaconal Ministry

OPC Disaster Relief coordinator David P. Nakhla writes,

Friends,

The Committee on Diaconal Ministries is working with and through our Missionaries to bring aid to Japan in this time of disaster. Luke Cummings, son of Cal & Edie Cummings, has initiated an effort to truck supplies the 200 miles from Tokyo to Sendai so that they can be used to minister to those with whom our missionaries have contact. They are bringing in water, rice, hot foods, batteries, toilet paper and other hygiene products and gas canisters…the basic necessities. He is buying what he can get. We thank God that, as far as we can tell, our missionaries' homes were spared any substantial damage!

The CDM has reserves to draw upon to finance this effort and is thankful to be able to participate in bringing this cup of cold water in the name of Christ.
