The recovery is ongoing still. Japan will recover but will never be the same-- people from all walks of life have been touched in some way by this tragedy.
It has been, and continues to be, an opportune time for mission work here. There have been many Christian workers that have gone up to assist in the rebuilding. Some of our friends have relocated up there to better assist with the hopes of starting churches in the spiritually dark area that it is.
Please continue to lift up the proud, but humbled people of Japan. Like all of us, we all need to humble ourselves and cry out to the one who can give us salvation. As God's Word puts it: Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up. James 4:10
