Tohoku Churches planted in Street View

Google has updated their Street View feature of their popular online mapping application to include more recent views of the devastation in the Tohoku area of Japan. They drove over 44,000 kilometers of affected regions, in the quest to capture 360-degree panoramic imagery of the affected areas. If you want to, the same images can also be viewed over at a special website called “Build the Memory,” letting you compare before and after shots of the towns which were affected by the mind-numbing events. For folks who want to experience the maximum effect, just start off inland and venture in the general direction of the coast – see how the idyllic countryside changes dramatically in time. Pictured above is the Be One House where Chad Huddleston and family moved in November to facilitate a church planting network in Ishinomaki, literally right around the corner from where we did cleanup a week after the tsunami. Please continue to keep the Huddlestons, all the volunteers and those touched by their efforts lifted up in prayer that the Spirit would continue to move in miraculous ways.
