News from Japan

Dear Family and Friends around the world

It is a beautiful Wednesday morning here and we are still giving thanks for what the Lord has done! No one came to the church for the first time this past Sunday but when Ruth finished sharing, she asked for all who wanted to be more committed in following Jesus to come forward for prayer. To our amazement, maybe more than 15 walked to the front of the room for prayer. One was a Brazilian husband who has faithfully been attending the church with his Christian wife but he…something seems to be too difficult for him to believe. What’s holding him back? We must keep pressing toward the heart of God. Only He can change hearts, right? Thank you again for praying for us. We feel good. I will meet with a Brazilian pastor for breakfast this morning….a sweet man and his wife who love Japan. Good friends! We love you!
