Hope you are doing well. For us, it’s been a busy season! Here’s what’s been going on with the Whites over the past month…
We’ve been preparing content for Waypoints season 3, which starts tomorrow (Good Friday) with an Easter-themed manga.
The week of March 21, I (Robin) attended Immanuel Church annual conference in Tokyo. It was a great time of reconnecting with people from across Japan after a few years of doing things mostly online. It was also a a productive time of promoting Drawbridge Creations and our manga project Waypoints.
After the conference, I stayed in Tokyo an extra day to meet with leaders from another organization about a potential collaboration with Drawbridge. Excited about the possibilities!
Then, on the 30th, Yoko and I travelled to Yokohama to see Andi, our (former) fellow GP missionary as she prepared to move back to the US. I’m sure she’d appreciate your prayers about her next steps in life and ministry.
Yoko and I then spent the next couple of days hosting our regional director Cheri who travelled from PNG for a visit. On April 3, Cheri and I were joined by some other GP leaders in Tokyo for meetings with Immanuel Church leaders. This is another first-in-years opportunity, and was a significant and meaningful time.
Finally, this week we have been hosting GP’s entire Asia-Pacific leadership team for their meetings here in Tokyo. We are tired but thankful for these times together with our Wesleyan missions connections. Please pray for safety and rest as we all go our separate ways. And pray too for God’s continuing guidance for our leaders, partners and us!
Looking ahead, the next couple of months should be a lot quieter. We are scheduled to begin leading worship once a month at Immanuel Komatsu Church beginning in April. This is where we worship most weeks, so it will be nice to get more involved this year. Please pray for us as we lead on April 30.
Thank you as always for your continuing prayers and partnership! We appreciate your investment in the mission, for Jesus and Japan!
