Great Stuff Found on the Web — Dr. Naomichi Masaki Reflects on Japan Disaster — 2 Comments

  1. Thanks to Norm for posting Dr. Masaki’s video. — Video’s impact is so much more than text !

    I hope Dr Masaki does a monthly update on Japan, and includes fundraising status.

    The devistation along the east coast from Iwate thru Sendai and Fukushima into Ibaraki provence is severe from the multiple disasters, and seems to have directly affected 1 million people plus indirectly affecting many more plus causing a huge longer term rebuilding problem for Japan. Add some radiation issues and we see a very difficult time not just now, but also ahead.

    We all need to support Human Services, Church Workers in the area, and the devastated.

    It is easy to give a beggar a gift as it is personalized,it is harder to give to far away causes as we manage our own consumptive desires.

    BJS can be a leading advocate for Mercy. The needs are great.

  2. I was very glad to hear Dr. Masaki’s comments regarding Manabu Wakabayashi and his family. Those who went through CTSFW in the late 90’s, early 00’s probably at least met him. A *great* guy, very dedicated and desirous of learning confessional Lutheranism. I was in summer Greek with him, ’96, Lockwood teaching. We admired Manabu for that–a native Japanese speaker learning Greek, via English, in America, from an Aussie. :)
