A Look at Iwate Prefecture 岩手県
One of the most severely damaged prefectures in Japan after the March 11th tsunami was Iwate-ken. This is where I had the opportunity to help out with the recovery efforts for a week, and this is where recovery efforts will continue on for years to come.

Here are some statistics I found to be very interesting:
Iwate Prefecture:
Population: 1,405,060
Missionaries: 1
Missionaries helping in the area after the devastation: Thousands!

Worship Attendence average on a Sunday: 1,248. (This is only about 1 in every 1,400 people.)
After the recover efforts are done: Only God knows.

Will you not pray for these desperate people that God loves so dearly?
