Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
On behalf of the National Council of Churches in India, I express our solidarity with you as you have experienced two natural calamities:
the Neoguri typhoon and the 6.5-magnitude earthquake that hit Japan’s northern coast on Saturday, 11 July 2014, not far from the site of the 2011 Fukushima disaster, triggering a small tsunami.
Our hearts go out to those who have been hit by these disasters, suffering loss of their houses and property, and being forced to seek shelter and protection elsewhere. As you go through the heartache of all your losses, you also, we are sure, will be resilient to face the challenges and re- settling yourselves, hard and painful though the process may be. We pray that the comforting presence and spirit of God will give you strength and fortitude to overcome the recent setbacks.
We continue to uphold you in our thoughts and prayers and pray that God would grant you grace sufficient to your needs.
