Demonstrating the Gospel:
Christian Workers at Nuclear Plant
There are several Christian men working on the pipe connection for the cooling system of the Fukushima nuclear plant. These are workers that have volunteered to essentially sacrifice their lives for the good of their country and the world. I find it interesting that so many are Christians despite there being about 1 Christian man in every 400 people in Japan. Please pray for these men. The leaders' names are Seiichi Kisaka and Naoyoshi Sato.
Other Christians known to be in the plant areas:
Mr. Shibuya is in the Fukushima Nuclear Plant One.
Mr. Nakamura is in the Fukushima Nuclear Plant One.
Mr. Kita departed to the Fukushima Nuclear Plant Two Saturday.
Mr. Yatsuo went to the Fukushima Nuclear Plant Sunday.
Mr. Nishimura went to Fukushima Nuclear Plant Two on Monday.
PRAY for their witness to co-workers! For the Lord’s protection, and success in the work!
And a Christian Japanese man headed the team that reconnected the fallen power lines so that electricity could flow again to the power plant. Many, many people prayed for this man and his team! And they were successful! The last I heard electricity was flowing again to reactors 1 & 2 and they were trying to do the same for reactors 3 & 4.
They were going to try and douse the reactors (namely reactor
#3) with water again but decided to concentrate all efforts on restoring
electrical power to the plant so they could use the water pumps, which would
be far more effective. As it turns out, the project head is a Christian.
His name is Naoyoshi Sato, believed to be a member of the First Baptist
Church of Fukushima.
So please join all of us so we can pray as one. Pray for God’s anointing
upon Sato-san. Pray for a miracle, and that he and his team will be able to
accomplish restoring electricity to the badly damaged power plant and that
the water pumps will be functional to cool the reactors down.
Also, please pray that just as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were
protected from the burning furnace, Sato-san, his team, the firefighters,
police officers, members of the self-defense force and government officials
on the scene will also be fully protected from all harm.
And pray for a solution to the crack in the reactor which could result in
major radiation leakage.

May all those involved witness the power and majesty of God that all
glory will be his.
