Saishū-bi (last day)


It is indeed our last day of ministry tomorrow, we finish off with singing/acting/testimonies in Izumi Hope Chapel in Osaka.... I love the pastor couple of this church.... The pastor has been at this church for 13 years, there are about 25 members and he preaches his sermon 3 times a week to accommodate every bodies schedule. He has the biggest heart, and an amazing family. He is also on the board for the MB Japan Conference, (I actually think he might be the board Chair, have to clarify that), so Gary and I have had some good conversation with him about many different things, and it has helped us understand a bit more about churches of Japan and how they work, but also helped us see how much work there is here for missionaries, and that they are always praying for more people to be interested to come.

For Gary and I this summer has been something else, we have many questions... And lots to figure out.... We have a week of debrief so after that I can probably be more detailed, but for now we are just focusing on what Jesus is trying to tell us and what it is He wants us to take from this experience.

Thank you to all of you who have supported, we love you all and pray God will Bless each one of you in a real way.

We go to Nagoya tomorrow by bullet train and then fly back to Canada on Monday.

Specific prayer request;

*Travel Safety
*Health (both Gary and I are feeling under the weather)
*Beneficial debrief
*Peace in our hearts

Thank you and much Blessings,
Please stay tuned for a final debrief.

Until next time, :)
