I am Shinto Yabamoto resident in Spain. We have other japanese families living as a community here in Spain. Our family members were severely affected by the recent Tsunami earthquake that happened in the pacific ocean that devasted Tokyo and led to the lost over 13,000 lives and properties worth billions of Dollars.

Thanks for your assistance to the need of humanity of the Japanese people. May God richly blessed and also expand your territory in any field of your endeavour.
Thanks for that, Shinto, if that is your real name – which it isn’t.
Another one for the “fire into the heart of the Sun” pile.
