Visions are motivating the church in Japan

Japan (MNN) -- Saturday marks three months since the earthquake and resulting tsunami swept across Japan. According to Pete Howard with Food for the Hungry, the homelessness and cleanup continue. Howard says many Japanese are still in need. "Close to 200,000 people are still living in shelters and outside of their homes. Some of those people, especially those who live near the Fukushima Nuclear Plant, cannot go back to their homes." Howard says the church in Japan has been phenomenal in providing relief -- going into "at risk" areas. Howard says it's a move of the Holy Spirit. "Pastors and leaders are having dreams -- dreams of Jesus walking through the rubble toward the Fukushima Nuclear plant. Some of these Christian leaders see those dreams as a call to the church not to run away from the danger or the challenges, but to follow Jesus into the danger." Japan's technology hasn't been able to provide hope, so they're now asking spiritual questions. Pray that Christians will be there to provide the Answer.
