Boken Bakari

That means, “Nothing but adventures.” The day started with a train, a bus, and then another train. In places the devastation is still prominent. My plan was to meet up with a weekend mission team from Osaka. It took longer than planned to get to Ishinomaki. Once we hooked up, we did demolition in Abe-san’s garage. Abe is an auto mechanic and has been the target of God’s relentless love since the triple disaster and especially the monster wave that swept his wife away. He still holds out hope that she will be found alive. It was a joy and a privilege to help Abe get his life one step closer to functional. It was a dream in which Jesus appeared to Abe that began the redemptive relationship between Be One and Asian Access, and Mr Abe, his 2 sisters-in-law, and a niece. Finally the car I was riding in that evening in a pouring rain to get back to the place I was staying got stuck. It took a couple of hours to get back on the road. We were all rejoicing that God’ provision is sometimes unforeseen but always for our growth in holiness.
