Shelter Box assisting in JAPAN – Take Action!

 

 

A Celebration of Women

 

You’ve seen the news – Japan is in trouble.

 

 

 

March 11, 2011 is a day, we all will never forget, above Earth 8 shows how it hits Japan.


 

Here is an excerpt from Japan’s Prime Minister, Naoto Kan:

 

“The ongoing nuclear incidents are compounding the effects fo the eathquake and tsunami. Families being evacuated from the exclusion zones are going to have to be sheltered somewhere.  We’ll have a much clearer picture of the situation tomorrow when we reach the affected areas in the north.”

 

 

A ShelterBox Response Team is on the ground in Japan.

 

This may be the first time your’re hearing about ShelterBox. They’ve responded to over 70 disasters over the last decade – from Hurricane Katrina to flooding in North Korea and war in the Gaza Strip.

A ShelterBox is, literally, the supplies needed to house and shelter a family. There’s a tent ( that sleeps 10), a stove, dishes, utensils, tools, sleeping bags, ground sheets and water filters.

 

This Video is 6:30 and shows you what ShelterBox is all about:   

 

“Mark Pearson (UK), Lasse Petersen (AU), John Diksa (FR) and David Eby (USA) are in Japan right now.  

They are the ShelterBox Response Team, and they’re getting help to the people who need it.  And you can help them too. ” 

says Conrad Hall, friend and ShelterBox Representative requesting our assistance.

The Aftermath
The Japanese National Police Agency has officially confirmed 1,897 deaths, 1,885 injuries, and 3,002 people missing across sixteen prefectures, but estimated numbers are far higher, ranging from thousands to tens of thousands dead or missing. The earthquake and tsunami caused extensive and severe damage in Japan, including heavy damage to roads and railways as well as fires in many areas, and a dam collapse.
Around 4.4 million households in northeastern Japan were left without electricity and 1.4 million without water.[16] Many electrical generators were taken down, and at least two nuclear reactors partially melted down, which prompted evacuations of the affected areas, and a state of emergency was established.
Both reactor plants believed to have partially melted down have experienced a chemical explosion extensively damaging their buildings, but the integrity of the inner core-containment vessel was not compromised and no highly radioactive release from the plants have occurred.
Residents within a 20 km (12 mi) radius of the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant and a 10 km (6.2 mi) radius of the Fukushima II Nuclear Power Plant were evacuated. Early estimates from AIR Worldwide place insured losses from the earthquake and tsunami at US$14.5 to $34.6 billion.[22] Chief economist for Japan at Credit Suisse, Hiromichi Shirakawa, said in a note to clients that the estimated economic loss may likely be around $171–183 billion just to the region which was hit by the quake and tsunami.
The Bank of Japan offered a combined 15 trillion yen ($183 billion) to the banking system on 14 March 2011 to make the conditions in the market normal.The estimates of the Sendai earthquake’s magnitude made it the most powerful earthquake to hit Japan and one of the five most powerful earthquakes in the world overall since modern record-keeping began in 1900.
Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan said that “in the 65 years after the end of World War II, this is the toughest and the most difficult crisis for Japan. The earthquake moved Honshu 2.4 m (7.9 ft) east and shifted the earth on its rotational axis by almost 10 cm (3.9 in)”.

sends our blessings and prayers to all the Women of our World in JAPAN.

 

 

 

Luke 17:5-6 “The apostles said to the Lord, ‘Increase our faith!’ The Lord replied.

 ‘If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree,

 ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.'” 

 

May GOD Bless you and keep you faithful through this trying time….
