We delivered relief goods to Sendai churches by bike trailer
Today we delivered goods to the following churches:
○Sendai Itsutsubashi Church
○Miyagino Aisen Church
○Sendai Nagamachi Church
○Sendai Higashi Ichibancho Church
At Miyagino Aisen Church, the over 50 people who were sheltered at the church have now returned home.
We still are experiencing lack of gasoline and so we are delivering goods by bicycle.
This morning we received 18 bike trailers from YFJ. Now we can deliver more goods at one time. Next week we expect electric bicycles to be delivered from Taiwan. We are very grateful.
1) putting together the bike trailers

Change in location to send relief supplies – Send to Oh-u District Office in Morioka
We thank the many people who are sending relief supplies.
Thanks to your cooperation, we now have sufficient supplies. So we will now ask the supplies to be sent to Oh-u District Office in Iwate Prefecture, where they lack supplies.
Iwate Prefecture still is not able to receive shipments from other prefectures and there is a shortage of gas, and so supplies are in short supply. Iwate Prefecture suffered immense damages by the tsunami. The Ou District plans to use the supplies for use in the coastal regions that suffered greatly.
Please send supplies to:
3-2-37 Osawa Kawahara, Morioka
Nihon Kirisuto Kyodan Oh-u-Kyoku Office
Needed supplies: ○Vacuum packed food
○Diapers (for children and adults)
○Under wear (only if new/unused)
○pocket warmers (disposable)
○Writing utensils (office supplies)
○Bag for sandbag
○Other household items
