The Alliance is starting a ministry center in Ishinomaki, Japan—one of the hardest-hit areas by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami—where more than 3,000 lives were lost. Some people, even after hearing the tsunami sirens, went home to retrieve personal belongings, only to be washed out to sea. “Through this center, we have a unique opportunity to help the hurting,” write Jill and Alan Kropp. “Our plans are to start a ministry that will serve the needs of the whole person, body and soul, and eventually evolve into a sustainable, local church.”
