Hi everyone,

As most of you already know, Yoko and I had an unexpected interruption to our Partnership Development travels, due to the sudden illness and passing of Yoko’s father. After 2+ weeks in Japan, we’re now safely back in Canada. We really appreciate all of the encouraging emails and messages many of you sent — too many to respond to! — and your prayers during this difficult time. Thank you! 

Please continue to pray for Yoko and her family as they deal with this loss, and for Yoko and I as we get back into the swing of things here in Canada.

This past weekend we visited Amherst, Nova Scotia for a missions weekend at the Wesleyan Church there. We have one more church visit scheduled this year, this coming Sunday at Port Maitland, NS. Please pray for this last ministry trip of the year and for our continuing Partnership Development efforts.

As you can imagine, this unexpected interruption has put us behind on some things. Not only do we need to reschedule some church visits, but our support fund is not where we’d hoped to would be by now. If you are thinking about making a Faith Promise, please go HERE for more information or directly HERE to sign up. 

Again, thank you all for your partnership in our mission in Japan through your prayers and giving! We are grateful to have you on our team!

– Robin (and Yoko)
