An International Outreach
From the beginning, God has blessed our work in Nagaoka with the attendance of many foreigners. Many of them are lost. We are so thankful for the opportunity God has given us to be a witness to people from all around the world (Syria, Nepal, Philippines, China…). Many them do not know Japanese and English is their second language. Please pray God will give us wisdom to reach these precious souls for Him.
God Blessed Our Christmas Services
We thank the Lord for the way He blessed our various Christmas services. God blessed us with 11 attending our Ladies’ Christmas Service and 21 attending our Young Peoples’ Christmas meeting. These were followed by church wide Christmas Services on the 19th and the evening of the 24th. God blessed both of these services with 30 plus in attendance. A number of first time visitors and a good number of lost attended each of these services. Please pray that God will continue to work in the hearts of those who attended.
A Japanese Coworker
Since we began the work here in Nagaoka, we have been praying for God to send us a Japanese coworker. While God has not yet done so, we are confident that He will do so, in His time. Please pray with us for God to lead and provide in our need for a Japanese coworker.
You Are a Blessing to Us
Thank you for praying for us. You are a real blessing to us. We pray that God will wonderfully bless you, throughout the New Year.
