Update on Giving and Our Team’s Safety

by | Mar 16, 2011 | Disaster, Missions

Our dear family and friends,

First of all, thank you for your patience as we got our fund-raising details taken care of! Our team has arranged two ways to donate to helping our brothers and sisters in Japan (electronically or by check). Gifts by check are tax deductible. See details on how to give below.

Electronically (Not yet tax deductible) 

If you would like to give by credit card or by Paypal, we have set up a fund-raising site to do just that. Note: This method is not tax deductible (yet).

By Check (Is Tax deductible)

Step 1 – Email Danny Iverson and let him know who it is coming from and how much you would like to give: [email protected]

Step 2. Mail Checks made payable to:

JS Resources, Inc.
844 Maraval Court
Longwood, FL 32750

JS resources is a 501 c3 non-profit organization, so all donations given through them are a tax-deductible. They have graciously agreed to process all checks for this trip free of admin fees. 100% of your donation will go to Tsunami Relief.  

Lastly, a word about safety : a number of you have expressed concern (and rightly so) about the safety of our team going to Japan at this time, since there is still some danger that the growing nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant will worsen. We want to let you know that our small team (now made up of 4 people) will be working very closely with long-term missionaries there on the field, and with their direction and help of several people on the field, we will be keeping a constant watch on the radiation levels. I (Mike) realize that while my heart goes out to this ministry in Japan, my primary ministry on Earth will always be my family, so I am committed to doing what I can and returning home safe. But right now there are over 500,000 evacuees that have no homes, and over a million without water, and nearly every single one of them needs the gospel most of all. This is why I must go.

Please pray that whatever happens, that nothing would hinder our mission to go. My people are in great need, and my heart is compelled by their suffering. Oh God, save Japan out of all their troubles!
