Japan 2011, Start of the Cafe

First mission trip to Japan after March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami.  We were there for a week to do relief ministry.  This area was less than 2 miles from the ocean and was hit by 20' waves.  The ministry in Japan was going to use the building as a cafe for the survivors to come and be served.  Directly across the street was an elementary school used as a shelter where for a time over 400 people were staying.  We have continued to return each year.
