Many people are coming to the Center to volunteer. Even though at times they feel despair when they see the tragic scene of the disaster, they want to do what they can to help.
Etsuya Kataoka is the pastor of a Wakamatsu Sakaemachi Church (Kyodan). He came quickly to Sendai to confirm safety of churches and to help organize and establish the Disaster Relief Center.
He has made time in his busy work as pastor in Aizu Fukushima, staying at the Center now to help with relief activities. Being from Kansai, he has his unique accent and personality that livens up our Center. However, he works too hard and at night you can see him exhausted from the day.
He lends his guidance not only at the volunteer sites but with this blog and other communication. We pray that he will continue provide his guidance.
