Volunteers from the JBC Disaster Relief Headquarters served hot meals for the fourth time on Saturday the 21st at Ogihama Elementary School in Ishinomaki City. It was the 30th anniversary of their merging with a neighboring school. Thirteen energetic children were cheering and shouting under a blue sky with fishermen's large and colorful banners waving in the breeze. Upon the request of a representative from one of the refugee camps, two volunteer workers from the Sendai area helped with the work of reviving the local oyster farming industry. This was the 6th meal distribution in Kyubunhama, and the first one at Oginohama Middle School. A team of 24 volunteers, including some from the Sendai area were able to serve cheerfully with the prayer support of Rev. Akiyama. A Korean team from Mito Church prepared an authentic Korean dish bibimbap, which was greatly appreciated. We are thankful to the Christians all over Japan, and all over the world, who support these volunteers through offerings and prayers.
