The above picture is from my Thursday afternoon kids English class, who have just finished their third year together! It’s hard to believe it’s been that long, but I’m super thankful for the good relationships that have been built through this and my other English classes. In addition to finishing another year of kids classes, in February we also hosted an English Club event. These all-ages events are held from time-to-time as a “next step” in building spiritual bridges between our students and the church. February’s was an Olympic themed event, and we had about 30 people take part, including a good handful of non-Christians. Thank you for your continuing prayers for these ministries!
Please be praying for the following things in March:
1. English Cafe (a casual time of English conversation practice) is this Friday night (3/7).
2. The Immanuel Church’s annual national conference (3/11-13) with guest speaker Dr. Joanne Lyon. This is a time of worship and learning for the pastors of Immanuel churches, along with business meetings. It’s also when pastors receive their appointments and church transitions begin.
3. Leading worship at prayer meeting here in Nagoya (3/23).
4. Partnership Development. I’ve started planning my schedule for my time back in North America starting in late June. Please pray for this planning and prep time. Pray, too, that we can find someone to cover my English classes during my absence; there are some possibilities but nothing definite yet.
Thank you for being a part of our ministry here in Japan!
