Earthquake deja-vu

Deja vu is the sense that an event is repeating itself. The earthquake came on Tuesday at 6:59 a.m. The shaking increased and increased and just wouldn’t stop. “Oh no,” we thought, “not again.” Soon the speakers up and down the coast were blaring warnings about a tsunami, “Escape to high ground, don’t go near the coast” Exactly the same as five years ago during the 2011 Great North East Japan Disaster. But this time I was ready! I grabbed my camera and headed for the cliff. And this is what I saw.

It was a small tsunami with no fatalities but it was a chilling reminder for many who lost loved ones (20,000 died) or who lost everything except their lives (many are still in temporary housing) five years ago. Pray for them that they will flee to the only place of spiritual safety, Jesus Christ, and for us as we evangelize them.

Will you pray for Japan?

  • Pray for all those who lost loved ones and those who lost everything except their lives in the 2011 disaster. Pray that they’ll find safety in Jesus Christ.
  • Pray for those who work in these areas, for boldness in evangelism.
