Mid-April with the sakura (cherry blossoms) in full bloom

Hi everyone,

Thank you for your prayers! Yoko and I just celebrated our anniversary yesterday — we’re thankful for our first five years as a married couple, and for God’s blessings in all the ups and downs.

There was lots to keep us busy this past month. One highlight was this past Sunday, when we travelled to Fukui, where we led the service and I preached to a small but responsive congregation. 

Yoko has been working on a new manga script and we’ve both been networking to find an artist for this new project. We’re grateful for new connections and opportunities happening with Drawbridge Creations, and hope to share more soon!

Please PRAY with us for all that’s going on in May:

  • Preaching and music ministry planned on May 19 for Pentecost Sunday at Immanuel Kanzawa-Izumi Church.
  • Worship leading at Immanuel Komatsu Church.
  • Guests (potential ministry partners) visiting from the US.
  • Planning and preparing to go to North America this summer for partnership development.
  • Our continuing work with Drawbridge Creations.

We’d appreciate your prayers that we can balance it all, get done what we need to, minister effectively and rest well.

Thank you for being on our team! We’re grateful for all of our prayer and financial partners.
