《Koriyama GCS Activity Diary 8/27》
This morning while I was out shopping someone delivered 10 lunch packs of "mushroom rice balls" and 20 "sweet cream puffs" addressed to "Everyone at GCS(Grace Community Service)".
They were brought by the "M" family; a couple that we helped this week. Their home which used to be in the Odaka neighborhood of Minami Soma city was completely washed away by the tsunami.
The husband cheerfully said, "Well, everything was washed clean away. Ain’t nothing we can do ‘bout the stuff we lost. But you all have been a real big help by giving us stuff."
"There’s just the two of us left but you all have been a big help for sure," he said with a hearty, memorable laugh.
The rice balls were delivered early this morning from Minami Soma city.
It is a 2 and a half hour trip one way.
He called ahead and said over the phone, "Ya know the Sangas've gotta lot of young'ns (I guess he means our volunteers) and I bet they could eat all of these up and so I brung'em to you all!"
When I returned to the church I saw the big bag full of rice balls and cream puffs, all of them "Made in Minami Soma♡"
"These were all made at a store in Minami Soma!!!" I thought to myself and was overcome with tears. It was really moving to eat those moist delicious rice balls!
Thank you Jesus!
