July in Japan (prayer letter)

Hi everyone,

I hope your summer is going well so far. Thank you for your prayers over the past month!

In June I went on two ministry trips — to Shimoda and Matsuyama. Both were very full weekends, with both preaching and music duties. Thankfully God strengthened and used me, as guests heard the gospel and churches were encouraged. As a bonus, I got to see some beautiful scenery along the way, as you can see from the picture above, taken in Shimoda.

Meanwhile, as this year of transitions continues, I’m in the last month and a half of my regular English teaching duties, I just moved house this week, and my church is embarking on our building project. Your continuing prayers would be appreciated during this time of change and decision-making.

As the summer ministry season continues, please pray with me for the following dates as well:

  • 7/6 — English Cafe
  • 7/11 — Worship leading
  • 7/12 & 7/22 — English Bible studies
  • 7/15 — Music and preaching ministry in Morioka
  • 7/27-28 — Kids camp
  • 7/29 — English ministry grand finale event

Thank you again!
