Hi everyone,

As many of you know, I was back in North America for 3+ weeks recently. I was in upstate New York for a Global Partners retreat and conference, followed by a a couple of days at the Wesleyan Church General Conference. It was a great time of fellowship, team building, learning, equipping and worship.

After that I went to Canada for about 2 weeks of vacation time. I’m really thankful for the time I had to relax with my family and to catch up with friends. I’m thankful for safe travel too.

Now I’m back in Japan and gearing up for the summer. As usual, summer is going to be a very busy season of ministry, so I’d certainly appreciate your prayers. Here are some specific things you can be praying for:

July 7-25 I have a short-term missionary working with me. Pray for Drake, who is considering becoming a long-term missionary, as he explores what ministry in Japan looks like.

In late July and early August, I’ll be taking part in a art exhibit with some other Christian artists from the area. This is an outreach for a local church, and also the first event our newly formed Tokai Christian Artist Network. Pray that it will held build bridges with the community, and that these new partnerships will lead to bigger and better things.

Please pray too for this month’s English Cafe (July 1) and English Bible study (July 17). We also have a special kids’ event on July 18.

As always, thank you for your prayers and support! Hope you have a great summer.
