Hello from Japan. This trip has been truly amazing.

We are giving lots of assists* and showing people on how to do assists. It is a bit cold but spirits are high. We have approval to travel as emergency responders so we can move on roads and highways only open to that traffic.

We are reaching out and setting up new delivery locations daily, with the best of the best from around the globe, Volunteer Ministers with stellar training and experience as responders and in disaster response, many good friends from the trenches.

Some 400 thousand people have been displaced by this combination of three disasters. Yesterday there was a severe after shock, which caused panic and fear. We were at a shelter and by the time we left the people in that shelter in good spirits again.

We are having great experiences as well. I gave an Assist to an elderly woman who was in great discomfort, the pain went and she then talked to me about the loss of her family to the point of coming through the trauma. We go to shelters and people politely run to the door area, greet us with bows and lay down for an assist as others line up. It is truly amazing. Today (Friday, March 25), we will be giving assists to other emergency responders as well.

*Assist: L. Ron Hubbard developed numerous applications of his discoveries for the mental and spiritual aspects of a person's physical difficulties. And as more and more techniques evolved, a new body of technology came into use, called Assists. An Assist is an action undertaken to help a person confront physical difficulties.
