Thank you for praying for our busy September!

We had good times of ministry at the Immanuel churches in nearby Kanazawa and not-so-nearby Yokkaichi, with some great interaction with the pastors and members as well.

After that, we spent four days in Gifu attending the 7th Japan Congress on Evangelism (JCE7). It was encouraging to worship and learn together with some 1,200 Japanese pastors and leaders, as well as fellow missionaries, from various denominations across Japan.

Of course, part of our purpose there was to promote Drawbridge Creations and hand out manga outreach resources, joined by one of our Waypoints artists, Mukai Makito. We made a lot of good connections at our booth, and gave away lots of outreach cards and manga booklets. We’re thankful that many people showed interest in what we’re doing, and hopeful that these resources will help them reach more people for Jesus.

We’ve also set up a resource page on the Drawbridge website, where people in Japan can order materials from us, and already we’ve received several orders, even without doing much promotion yet. We’re able to give these resources away for free because of the support of people like you! Thank you for partnering with us to resource the Church and reach out to Japanese! 

Please PRAY with us this month as we…

  • Send manga outreach resources to people who ordered them,
  • Do music ministry at Immanuel Komatsu Church,
  • Teach an art class at Uchinada Hope International School (10/15),
  • Take some online leadership training (meaning late nights once a week), 
  • And make plans to host a vision trip team from the US in November.

Lots to pray about, plan for, and prepare, as we get closer to the end of the year.

Thank you again for your partnership and prayers!

Good conversations at JCE7
