Thank you for your prayers this past month! This month’s adventures took me to kids camp, Kyoto and Cambodia!
We had 24 kids come to my church’s two-day kids camp this year. Most of these kids are from unchurched families, and many first connected with our church through my English classes, so it’s awesome to see them coming to church events and hearing the Gospel. Please pray that God will continue to work in the lives of these kids and their families.
The day after kids camp, I was off to Kyoto, where I taught an English Bible study at Immanuel Kyoto-Nishi Church. I’m filling in there every other month while their resident missionary Andrea is back in the US for partnership development. There are a bunch of non-Christians connecting with the church through this ministry, and they haven’t stopped coming just because Andrea is away. Pray that God will continue to work in their lives as well.
This past week, I was in Cambodia for the GP Asia area retreat. It was great to connect with fellow missionaries to worship, pray and learn together. This year we focused on gaining vision clarity. This is an ongoing process, particularly here in Japan, where we have a small team but big dreams. Please continue to pray with us for vision and direction.
Here are some other dates to keep in prayer about:
- 8/4 – English Cafe (Nagoya)
- 8/6 – Preaching & music ministry in Hiroshima
- 8/8-11 – Youth camp in Nagano
- 8/20 – English Bible study (Nagoya)
Thanks again for your prayers, financial support and encouragement!
