Hi everyone,

Yoko and I are happy to announce that on April 30, we became husband and wife. We are so thankful for those who were able to celebrate with us; for our friends’ and families’ encouragement and prayers; and for God’s blessing on our wedding day. Despite the rain, it was a beautiful day.

Looking ahead, Yoko and I would appreciate your prayers for us as we go through this period of transition, especially for our preparations to return to Canada this summer, when Yoko will be joining me for Partnership Development, a time of re-connecting with ministry supporters in North America. Specifically, please pray for Yoko’s visa situation. As a Japanese citizen she is eligible to visit Canada for up to six months without a visa, but it is very likely we will need to stay longer this time. There are options, but we are still figuring out what’s best and how to proceed.

Thank you as always for your prayers and support! Yoko and I are looking forward to connecting with many of you in person this summer and fall.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here’s a link to the Spring newsletter I sent out last month: 


And speaking of Spring, here’s a link to an article I wrote recently, titled Spring Has Come:


Thanks again, and God bless!
