Eastern Japan Diocese

admin | 18 March 2011

As you read magnitude 9 earthquake attacked the northeastern part of Japan. And 30 feet tsunami swept through the east coastal areas in Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima Prefecture. In addition to that, serious trouble happened in the nuclear station in Fukushima.

We received many emails with love and prayers and inquiries from brothers and sisters throughout the world.

For the time being, the websites of the Orthodox Church in Japan and the Eastern Japan Diocese are still under difficulties to upload new information. On behalf of them, Western Japan Diocese website provides current news available.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
