An opportunity to convey the vision of Christ's love (OneNewsNow.com)

Dan Iverson is a church planting pastor and mission team leader in the Tokyo/Chiba area. He and his wife Carol have served in Japan since 1986 with Mission to the World, a ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America. Iverson says about 70 percent of Japanese profess no religious affiliation. "Japan is so poor spiritually," he laments. "There's suicides everyday, there's so many problems in this rich country that has no clue about the gospel -- and we just pray that God will have mercy on Japan in [the wake of] this terrible earthquake."

Christian Relief, Assistance, Support and Hope (CRASH), a network supporting Christians helping with relief work in Japan, is coordinating relief efforts with Christian missionaries there. They are currently setting up a command center in Tokyo and bases in affected areas. In addition, the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability has created a link on its homepage for givers to connect with member organizations already assisting or poised to assist in the massive relief efforts there.
