ORH has received no information that would indicate great damage or loss of life as a result of the typhoon which struck Okinawa and then moved to main land Japan.
As our good friend Ron White expressed. "I hope that Operation Renewed Hope is not needed."
We did get this email from Matt Starin on Okinawa which indicated damage to the home and cars of one of his church members. He is also checking the neighborhood around the church for anyone in need. Pray that we could help someone that is lost to know Christ.
Thank you for the email. We did have a church member and her two sons who had water damage at their home. The water came up four to six feet when the Tengan River crested and flooded their area. Both cars were completely submerged in the water. A water pump purchase would of been helpful or one of those wet vacs.

We asked Matt if insurance would help the church member and this was his reply.
"Mrs Kishimoto did not have insurance for flooding but her son Kei's car did. She has gotten a rental car for a month. We went over there Weds morning when it was safe and the water had just receded."
We are waiting to hear from Matt about what can be done to help this lady since she did not have flood insurance. ORH would like to send Matt some funds to help Mrs. Kishimoto.
