Offering Hope Amidst The Terrible Aftermath in Japan

Guest Post by David Sanford

Like most people, I still haven’t been able to comprehend the staggering toll from Japan’s worst disaster since World War II.

Still Donating To Haiti Earthquake Relief

Multnomah students raised over $2000 for Haiti earthquake relief during the week of the Global Ministries Conference. (And we're sure the dollar amount is much higher now - but we weren't able to confirm exactly how much at time of posting).

Haitian Seminary Collapses

Bruce and Cindy McMartin, grads of Multnomah, teach at a seminary in Haiti which recently collapsed because of the earthquake. All funds collected will be sent to help them.

There have been reports that there are around 5000 people camped out on a campus that holds roughly 200 students! There is no place to use the restroom (save for holes they've dug), medical supplies run out fast, and food/water supplies run short.

Burying Dead Students

And more disturbing than all of this is that we've heard reports that they even had to bury some dead students on the campus grounds because there was no other place to put them.

Now, try to imagine all of this on the Multnomah campus - but with far fewer resources!
