Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a good January. This past month I’ve been getting back into the swing of things and trying to plan for the rest of the year in the midst of many unknowns. Your continuing prayers are appreciated as I navigate a year of many changes. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, please check out the newsletter I sent last month, which you may have missed:

Last Sunday was my final visit to Kyoto-Nishi Immanuel Church, where I’ve been filling in every-other-month for fellow GP missionary Andrea Swarthout, leading their English Bible study. This time I also got to preach in their morning service. There are a number of seekers attending their English program and even Sunday worship, so please remember them in your prayers. Andrea is planning to be back from Partnership Development in April, so pray for her support raising and travel safety too.

Meanwhile, I’m still working with immigration to extend my work visa to stay in Japan this year. Please pray for the rest of the process to go smoothly, as there have been some delays and bumps on the road this time.

Here are some ministry dates in February to pray for:

  • 2/2 — English Cafe
  • 2/8 — English Bible study 1
  • 2/14 — Leading worship at prayer meeting
  • 2/18 — English Bible study 2

Thank you for your prayers and support for our ministry here in Japan!
