In this photo Rebekah (left) was doing survivor care—caring for this grandmother’s (right) heart post-earthquake. In the morning this Japanese grandmother didn’t have any hope left to live. By afternoon Rebekah and the other missionary pictured had helped this woman regain purpose in her life.
Rebekah Suzuki ’05 will never forget March 11, 2011—her contract at work had ended and this was her first day of unemployment. She had been praying that God would lead her to the right job where He could fully use her. And then the earthquake hit.
Since the earthquake hit, CRASH Japan has been growing rapidly. They have partnered with over 50 organizations, churches and nonprofits that are donating things to CRASH daily. They are also working with World Vision to provide child-safe environments, and Samaritan’s Purse to distribute large amounts of supplies they have imported.
