Pray for Japan, Pray for Tohoku

Last Friday, the world’s fifth biggest earthquake hit the Tohoku region in northeast Japan, followed by a tsunami. This has collectively caused significant damage to the country. There are still more than 10,000 people missing and millions have been evacuated into emergency shelters in the Tohoku area.

Our thoughts are with everyone and we hope for Japan’s quick recovery.
