        • A New Haiti


          from Experience Mission Added 3,416 10 1

          For a long time, Haiti has been the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Cycles of poverty and corruption have gone on for decades without much change, and they were all magnified after a magnitude 7.0 earthquake hit the capital city of Port-Au-Prince in January 2010. In the aftermath of disaster, many are left hopeless, but real change will come from the hope of the emerging generation. This is the story of a group of young men who have started living with greater purpose to better their community, and how you can be a part of helping their vision become a reality.

          • 2 Years On


            from Matthew Allard ACS Added 3,383 62 12

            Fourteen-year-old Koyuki Iwama plays a flute near where her grandfather used to live. He gave her the flute as a gift, but never had a chance to hear her play, as the tsunami claimed his life. Just above the din of tractors and backhoes sifting through rubble, Usuzawa Ryoichi begins to sob. In the two years since the tsunami in Japan, the 64-year-old has only returned a handful of times to the place where his home used to be. Before we even begin to talk, emotions overtake him. Standing on the foundation of his former house and looking at the vast expanse of what used to be a busy residential neighbourhood in Otsuchi, his body shakes, as tears mist over his glasses. His beloved dog Taro, whom he rescued from the black churning waters, is clutched tightly in his arms, whimpering. "When I come here, I see all the faces of the people being washed away, every single one of them, my neighbours, my friends. I can't shake them." Like many survivors, Usuzawa lives in a state of semi-depression. If the government had rebuilt and provided more jobs, he believes he would be doing much better. Instead, he and his wife try to find meaning in a temporary shelter. "We've watched families break apart. Domestic abuse is on the rise too, it's just a mess." Two years since Japan's worst disaster in modern times, 310,000 people are still without permanent housing. It's become public knowledge that of the $200bn pledged by the government for reconstruction, some has been used to fund things such as advertising projects in Tokyo for unrelated building projects, or caught up in the country's infamous red tape. Since winning election last December, Japan's new prime minister, Shinzo Abe, has overhauled the agency in charge of reconstruction. The former governing party, the DPJ, created the bureau after the disaster to bypass the government's bureaucracy. So far, though, many say it has failed to carry out its mission. 'We are doing our best' The reconstruction office for Otsuchi is a two-hour drive away, in Morioka, the capital of the prefecture. Taiji Yasuda, who has been second-in-charge since last July, admits there have been problems. But he blames a shortage of staff, saying he has fewer than 50 people working on rebuilding communities along a lengthy stretch of coastline. "We understand that people are undergoing extreme social stress and we want to hear from them," Yasuda says. "But we also want to tell them we are speeding up construction, that everything will be faster." Authorities say progress has been slow because of disagreements over land rights and fierce debates over how exactly to rebuild. "Yes, there have been challenges, but the planning stage is over now," says Yasuda. "We have already started building permanent homes. In the next few years you will see a great deal of change. We are doing our best." Usuzawa, though, is sceptical. A former government worker, he says he's tried many times, with other residents, to present to planners their ideas on how to rebuild their town. Instead, he says they've been met with silence. "They've hired design companies from far-away places like Tokyo, and we see these people every night spending their high salaries entertaining themselves in our communities. That is our money, that should be going directly to helping our people." Usuzawa says many of the youth have left for jobs elsewhere because there is simply nothing for them to do here. Deeply attached to his town, he refuses to leave. "You feel like a crazed person, like you could explode with anger at anytime ... They tell us they're making progress … We don't see it."

                  • Cleansing and Restoring the Gates


                    from King of Kings Added 2,652 3 1

                    It's been seven years this month since we dedicated our worship Center, the Pavilion. Since that day tens of thousands have gathered in this tabernacle of God's presence - but did you know that at our very gates are pornographic shops? In this video you'll be able to see just how close they are. Imagine, such places existing in the holy city, let alone at the very gates of our place of worship. Yeshua said: "Whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart." The very presence of these shops can be a cause of stumbling and sin. And hundreds of children and teenagers who come to worship and attend our Yuval Messianic School of Music and the Arts must pass by these shops. This is going to stop…if we can raise the resources to complete the purchase of these dens of iniquity and move them out. In this video I will encourage you to join us in a 40-day fast to see the completion of this holy task - to cleanse and restore the gates of our Pavilion. What we need to complete this task is $500,000 for the cleansing (the purchase of the three properties), and $200,000 for the restoring of all of the area around the Pavilion (including flooring, lighting, refurbishing etc.), for a total of $700,000. After watching the video, please ask the Lord what part you can play - praying, fasting and giving. Below are details about how to contact us and how to give. I thank you for your love and support. Blessings and shalom from Jerusalem, Pastor Wayne Hilsden and the whole King of Kings team -- To participate with us we encourage you to send a cheque, make a bank transfer, or give directly through our website.
