November News (prayer letter)

Hi everyone,

The above photo is from October’s English Cafe. As you can see, we were few in number this time (the weather’s been a bit “typhoony” lately) but we had a good time. I appreciate your continuing prayers for my English ministry, as we continue to make connections and point people to Jesus.

In other news, I broke a toe last week. It’s a minor injury, but is definitely slowing me down a bit. I’d appreciate your prayers for a quick recovery, especially as I’ve got lots of travelling ahead of me in November and December.

Here are some other prayer points for November:

  • Our new GP regional director Tim Gallant and his family are visiting Japan (11/10-16). Please pray for us as we talk about the future of our mission in Japan and meet with our partners here.
  • 11/8 — Worship leading in Nagoya
  • 11/19 — English Bible study in Nagoya
  • 11/26 — English Bible study in Kyoto
  • Also, please pray for me as I prep for the busy Christmas ministry season.

And, in case you missed it, please check out the newsletter I sent out last month: Click HERE to view, download or print.

Thank you as always for your prayers and support!

Hikers in the Mist (Photo of the Week)

August 2017, somewhere between Mount Yari (Yarigatake) and Kamikochi, in Nagano. This photo doesn’t do justice to how beautiful the actual scene looked, with the early morning sun shining through the trees, breaking through the mist.
