"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, with prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, present your requests to God, and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."
"You do not have because you do not ask God."
"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows."
Daily, we are reminded of our utter and complete dependance on God. It is so tempting to try things in our own strength. We tire ourselves out, spinning our wheels, trying to move forward. God commands us to present our requests to Him, and promises to answer us. We have come to realize that prayer is our only hope of getting to the mission field.
Would you pray with us?
As of this moment, our support is at 56% of our monthly pledges and 65% of our initial start up. In order to begin the VISA application process, we need to have 85% in monthly pledges accounted for.
Please pray that God would bring generous, kingdom hearted people into our lives who would joyfully give to His work in Japan on a monthly basis.
For our living situation...
Our current landlord as recently sold the house we are living in. At this moment, it is unclear whether we will be able to continue living in this house through the summer, or if we need to move.
Please pray that God would provide a place to live until we move to Japan. Ask that God would make it clear if we should move into temporary housing, and if so where.
For a place to minister...
While we are focusing on support raising here in the States, leaders in Japan are working with congrigations in the planning stages of a church plant.
Please pray that God would direct these leaders with wisdom, that we may be placed where God has called us.
For the hearts of Japanese...
God has already begun a work in the Japanese. He has been tilling soil, and preparing men and women to hear the Gospel.
Please pray that God would continue to work in the hearts of Japanese. Ask that He would unite believers in Godly fellowship, and equip them to share the Gospel.
In Christ, the giver of ever perfect gift!
