Chris & Kelly Dudley are one of the missionaries we support on a monthly basis at Cornerstone Church. They work with Convoy of Hope, a faith baseddisaster response organization. Our missionaries keep us up to date via newsletters, emails and often will speak during a sunday morning worship service. We’ve recently received an update about how Convoy of Hope is responding to the disaster in Japan. Chris Dudley writes,
I am making final preparations to leave for Japan tomorrow morning. We have all been gripped by the images of the earthquake/tsunami/nuclear disasters as we are sure you have also.
The reason we are writing you is to ask you to pray for our response team. We have been extremely diligent in gathering information regarding radiation and we feel that now is the time. Since the devastating earthquake happened Convoy of Hope has been monitoring the situation and working hard to help the survivors. The first team that was sent was diverted to the Philippines because of the radiation where they worked tirelessly to procure product to send to our partners in Japan. We will be traveling with a doctor who partners with Convoy of Hope as a consultant and we are ready to work hard with our Japanese partners to make a difference.
Our team is ready and none of us are apprehensive about the trip. That being said, please pray that our families back home will have peace about us being there. It is a situation which can be unsettling simply because of the mystery factor involved. Radiation is something you can’t see, taste, smell or feel, but we are going in very well equipped and under medical supervision.
Psalm 91:2 – I will say of the lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
We trust that God will be with us and we thank you for your prayers. I would like to say a special thank you to Pastors Larry & Deanna Shrodes for their willingness to adjust their schedule for me to be able to go to Japan.
Thank you again for your partnership and prayer.
Chris, Kelly, Iliana & Silas
