I do thank God for the continuing support of everyone to help our disaster-stricken country, the Philippines. The Filipino Food Bazaar last January 18~19 was a huge success due to the overwhelming generosity of both church members and our Japanese friends.
We are doing another fundraiser next month on February 15, 2014 (Saturday) from 2:00~4:00 PM by holding a mini-concert. Please pray for Jake De Guzman and the others who are responsible for the preparation as well as for the various artists we are inviting to perform. Pray that many people would come and enjoy the music lined up. Pray that they would be blessed as they listen to uplifting stories of survival, hope and trust in God in the midst of tragedy.
Also, please consider supporting the mission trip Wataru Murakami and I are spearheading in March. Some Doshisha University students are going with us to volunteer in the Visayas region.
Thank you and may God bless you more as you bless others in need.
I thought you might be encouraged as we see other projects done by other organizations to benefit the survivors. Here is one example that is worth sharing:
