Help Japan

I was very moved by the devastation in Japan. I would love to jump on a flight and go serve food and help in a tangible, hands-on way, but that door is not open for me right now. I can however help in a small way. Samaritan's Purse, the organization that delivers Christmas shoe boxes all over the world, was on the ground in Japan shortly after the disaster. Here is a blip from their website about their relief efforts:
Samaritan's Purse has airlifted 93 tons emergency aid to Japan to be distributed by our disaster relief team working in the devastated coastal area around Sendai, the closest major city to the epicenter of the deadly earthquake and tsunami. The supplies arrived Saturday, and are scheduled to be transported to the affected area by U.S. military C-17 cargo planes Sunday.

Not only are the Japanese people obviously suffering, the tsunami hit one of the least evangelized area of the country, according to Samaritan's purse, so our prayer should be that people's hearts are opened as Believer's come to meet their immediate physical needs. I also pray that you might be inclined to give generously to help aid those suffering in Japan.
