Leaving Rev. Nakazawa and Shizugawa behind, John Nduna was taken South toward Ishinomaki city.
Ishinomaki, Miyagi prefecture’s second-largest city, suffered the greatest loss of lives (3182 confirmed, 553 still missing) from the tsunami. Here, too, with some 7,300 temporary housing units built in 130 locations, there is much concern for the spiritual wellbeing of evacuated residents.
