Japan earthquake and tsunami.

A first-anniversary collection

of reflections, observations and hope.

Thank you for your gifts of more than $460,000 through One Great Hour of Sharing to help your Japanese brothers and sisters in Christ re-build their churches, their spirits and their lives!

We have asked IM missionaries who have been involved in relief and rebuilding efforts since the disaster to share their reflections of the last 365 days. In these journals you’ll read about our successes, setbacks and surprises.

One Great Hour of Sharing
is administered by the World Relief Committee of the Board of General Ministries of American Baptist Churches USA.  The Committee facilitates American Baptist emergency relief, disaster rehabilitation, refugee work, and development assistance by establishing policy guidelines and overseeing distribution of the annual One Great Hour of Sharing offering received by churches.
