Major 8.8 Earthquake in Japan!

We are OK!  Our family is currently in Karuizawa, Japan attending an Asian Access retreat. Information is sketchy for us, but a major 9.1 earthquake has hit off the coast of Sendai, Japan about 3:00pm (JST). There has been a tsunami measuring 10 meters has also hit the coast.  Tsunami and aftershock warnings remain in effect for the entire eastern seaboard of the country.

This is a quick message to tell folks we're okay, and to ask people to be praying for this country.  As we are at a retreat center in the remote mountains, we have no idea about details, so please check your sources for more information.  We will report more when possible.

As always in Christ,

Jeff and Nozomi, Zack and Ellie Johnston
