In one of the affected areas, Kumamoto, Japan, 200 Unificationists are in refugee centers around their town and five of their houses are fully damaged, 39 houses are partially damaged, and three family members are hospitalized. We encourage all family members and businesses to contribute what they can to the affected areas of both Japan and Ecuador. You can do so in church this Sunday, or online.
