Nasushiobara, Japan — A Liberian church leader has miraculously escaped the devastating 9.00 earthquake followed by the Tsunami just days after it hit the country.
According to the Reverend Kortu K. Brown, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Concerned Christian Community (CCC), a premier Liberian Christian NGO, Mrs. Miatta R. Sirleaf, Director of Church Aid Incorporated (CAI) and also Church Administrator of New Water in the Desert Assembly in Brewerville, Liberia, had arrived in northeast Japan on March 4, 2011, for a one-year work-study at the Asian Rural Institute (ARI) in Nasushiobara.
“Eight days later, the deadly earthquake occurred and we understand that she and her colleagues were in a staff meeting when the earthquake struck at about 2:46 PM forcing them to flee through the window.”
Gnn has since learned that all the staff at ARI, along with Mrs. Sirleaf, are safe.
The Rev. Brown went on to say, “Thanks for standing with Miatta and others in prayers. She’s such dedicated church worker who has been associated with our relief and development since April 1992. Twelve years ago, she spent a year in Japan and The Philippines in training as a Community Development Technician.”
