On 3rd of April, a solidarity gathering was held at the charch of my town in Valkenswaard. This gathering was organized by the poeple of Valkenswaard which made it very special. The speech by Yukari Tangena-Suzuki brought tears to many people's eyes and the performance by its chuch choir, Japanese women's choir "Yoyoi", Koto played by Makiko Goto, Saxophone played by Ad Peijnenburg were well received. The donation collected on the day was 1,523 Euro. It will be donated to Japanese Christian Fellowship Church.
I would like to share this heart moving gathering with you by sending the photo of the day.
On 10th of April, a charity concert is to be held in Eindhoven. On 9th of April there will be a street donation event in Eindhoven.
May all the prayers from the Netherlands reach Japan so that the victims of the earthquake and the following disaster will find the hope once again in their hearts soon.
