JEMS has been sending short and long term Christian missionaries to Japan since 1953. You may know JEMS here in the United States through ministries like Mount Hermon or Asian American Christian Fellowship on campuses across the united states. We are reaching out to the JEMS community and beyond to let you know that we want help our fellow brothers and sisters in Japan. We also want to show God’s love tangibly, as we send donations to a ministry that is on the ground being the hands and feet of Christ in this calamity.
Recently we joined JEMA (the Japanese Evangelical Missionary Association). JEMA is a networking association of over 40 foreign missionary organizations in Japan. JEMA has forged many partnerships through their 42 years of being in that country. We trust their leadership and ministry, and as such, JEMS has decided to support a JEMA endorsed member organization called CRASH.
CRASH stands for Christian Relief, Assistance, Support and Hope. CRASH equips and prepares churches and missions in Japan, so that they may be able to help their communities when a disaster strikes. They also coordinate Christian volunteers to work with local ministries in the event of a disaster. They provide leadership and coordination for volunteers responding to typhoons, landslides, blizzards and earthquakes in Japan and internationally in cooperation with the JEMA and the JEA (Japan Evangelical Association).
They have already set up a command post in Tokyo preparing to address the needs of the churches that are becoming more evident as the hours go by.
Donations received by JEMS for the earthquake relief will go to CRASH Tohoku relief in Japan. JEMS will not receive any administrative fees from the donations. Razoo has generously agreed to donate any credit card processing fee as well so 100% of the money donated will go to Japan Disaster Relief!
Here is an excerpt from one of our missionaries in Japan. She is located about 1 hour south of Sendai (by Shinkansen or bullet train).

Anne in Omochanomachi,Tochigi
We have been advised by the Japanese government not to panic, and to
avoid buying up supplies so that there can be provision for those in
the north. People are doing their best to preserve electricity so that
our comrades who are without can be provided for. Here in Tochigi
Prefecture, grocery stores are bare, and gasoline is just about
unavailable except for government vehicles and relief workers.
Sometimes, when there isn't an aftershock for several hours, it is
possible to push from our minds the very real, life-threatening danger
we are in. Several people have already asked me, "Why don't you just
go home?" But I tell them, "No way." We who are here know that we are
here for such a time as this. I believe God knew this was going to
happen when He called me here, and that He has a specific role in mind
for me and for my fellow workers in this time of dire crisis. "Though
He slay me, yet will I trust Him." Job 13:15
Continue to pray for us, and pray for God's love, glory, and most of
all, hope, to be spread to the people of Japan in the midst of this
If you’re a friend of JEMS, or new to us, please help us support and encourage our fellow brothers and sisters (both Japanese and foreign missionaries) in Japan. As the JEMS community, let’s show our love for Japan as we support CRASH. Thank you for your help.
