Earthquakes Hit Church!
It was exactly ten years go – in 2011 - when a 9.0 earthquake devastated Japan, resulting in nearly 25,000 deaths and total destruction combined with a tsunami and nuclear meltdown.
Amazingly, ten years later, a series of dramatic earthquakes which authorities have concluded are aftershocks of the previous earthquake that hit Japan, including one at a nearly 7.0 Magnitude, resulting in shaking throughout the country.
Grace Church, recently celebrating it’s 50th anniversary, had survived the 2011 earthquake with just minor damage, but the recent earthquake has resulted in damage including a falling off of part of the roof on the structure.
“We had neighbors rush to our Church in concern” said one at the Church, with another saying, “we have survived the pandemic, numerous typhoons, earthquakes and more, over five decades, but this time it finally hit us and we urgently need help to repair the roof and other damaged areas before the seasonal rains come”.
Known as the “oasis”, for being a local community center for the, the Church is urgently working to raise what is needed to do minimum repairs to the roof and other areas damaged in the unexpected series of earthquakes that rocked the nation.
Built in the traditional style, Church members are working hard at https://buck4good.com/project/japan-earthquake-2021/ to raise the needs to repair the roof and other damage before the rainy season comes.
