One of the untold stories from the unfolding crisis at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan revolves around a group of workers facing the disaster courageously because of their faith in Jesus. Seven of the workers are also members of the Fukushima Daiichi Seisho Baptist Church. Scott Eaton, director of a disaster assessment team sent to Japan after the quake and Tsunami once attended and taught at the same church. He described many of these people in the church as his dear “family.”
Eaton says one of the men who now bravely facing the radiation once ran away from the plant in fear. The church ministered to the man. After becoming a Christian, he returned to work with a smile, carrying his Bible. He was no longer afraid, and instead determined to work hard to solve the problem and convicted to share the good news of Jesus with his coworkers. Eaton says the workers and their families are aware of the possible consequences of working close to high and potentially lethal doses of radiation.
