I saw this post from OMF Japan Tohoku (the north eastern area of Japan effected by the 3.11 tsunami). So much of it resonated with what we are doing in Sapporo that I thought I would let you know about it too.
Day 2 – Tohoku University, Miyagi Prefecture
In responding to the needs among university students and faculty members after the great east Japan earthquake, OMF Japan field began “Sendai Student Focus (SSF)” ministry in 2014. The vision of this ministry is “to see discipled university graduates and staff making an impact for God’s kingdom in Tohoku, Japan, and the world.”
Our OMF prayer drive team arrived at Tohoku University to pray together with pastor Kimura of Grace Centre Church Sendai and some church members for students and faculty members and for those who work at the university. Tohoku University ranks No 9 in Japan, draws its 18,000 students from across Japan and the world. Tohoku Gakuin University (11569 students) attracts more students from within the Tohoku region. Other students are in smaller universities and colleges scattered throughout the city, totaling around 80,000 young people in higher education.
