And it was hit pretty hard by a huge Tsunami. Unfortunately for the locals, a lot of the resources were diverted or sent to Sendai leaving Hach short. Most Japanese people live in pretty tight quarters and don't have excess food storage, so not being able to shop frequently is a problem. And apparently the grocery stores are now empty.
On Sunday, Pres. B. announced in church that we would be collecting supplies to take to Hach.
Misawa Mormons were asked to donate food and warm blankets. (And many of our friends and neighbors donated too.)
This is the e-mail I got tonight:
|The local missionaries and Hach Branch President with our BP and members|
|My husband is a goof-ball!|
|Getting everything sorted|
|Hopefully enough to last a little while at least!|
