The photo at the top of this letter is of the Thursday afternoon kids English class I teach at my church. This past week, we finished our second year together, and most of these kids have been coming since the first day. It’s been fun seeing them grow and learn over the past 2 years. I’m thankful for the opportunity to invest in the lives of these kids, most of whom come from non-Christian homes. Thank you for your investment in this bridge-building ministry!
This is a season of re-focusing for me. The past year I’ve done a lot of traveling, and various opportunities have opened up. Now I’m trying to cut back on monthly commitments elsewhere so that I can give my best to my 40+ English students in Nagoya, while still being available for occasional special events and speaking engagements.
Please Pray With Me About the Following:
1. I’m preaching at the Immanuel Shizuoka Church on March 10. It’s the last Sunday of my monthly commitment there, and as usual I’ll be teaching the youth Sunday school class as well.
2. As part of our English ministry in Nagoya, we’re holding a special English Club event on Easter Sunday, March 31st.
3. March 12-14 is the Immanuel Church’s national annual conference. Please pray for the pastors and leaders taking part in these important meetings. Also, as this is when new appointments are announced, please pray for those who will be going through transitions in the coming months.
4. I’m hoping to start an English Bible study for any of my adult English students who may be interested. Please pray for direction about the details, and for a good group to join.
Thank you for your prayers and support!
