Context: The megacity of Tokyo is situated in an area prone to earthquakes and flooding. In addition, an eruption of Mt. Fuji, an active volcano 100 kilometers west of Tokyo, would seriously affect the residents of Tokyo. The Tokyo metropolitan government is encouraging all residents to be prepared for the predicted triple disasters: earthquake, tsunami, and volcanic eruption. Five days of emergency supplies are recommended.

Dale and Ann are personally preparing for potential disasters in their part of Tokyo. Dale is a member of the disaster preparedness board of their large apartment complex in Sumida-ku, and is the Canadian Embassy disaster contact person for their area of Tokyo. They would like to stock TMC nearby with disaster supplies. In addition, they own a vacation house in northeast Japan (Takayama) that will be their get a way place if they need to flee from Tokyo. They plan to store provisions there for anyone to use in that area.

Disasters have provided opportunities for sharing the love of Christ in practical and effective ways among people in Japan who are not usually open to the gospel. We do not look forward to disasters, but if one hits we want to be ready to clothe our church planting ministry with practical Christ-centered compassion.
