Dear Last Chance Chapel, friends, and family
Thank you for all your prayers and support. Things have been busy here. Started back at my work teaching, doing various things like paying bills and etc. I came back to sort of a winter here as you can see the snow on my car. Had to do shaken on my car. It is a manditory inspection on all cars here in Japan held every two years. A big chunk of money I had to pay. Most of the Japanese people have to do it this year. My students are doing well. My junior high school students are taking their tests that determine the senior high school that they will attend. It is a very important test that they have to take. I have been studying Japanese recently for about two hours every single day. Feels like my head is going to fall off. I am doing this so that I can be an example to the English students that I teach and so I can effectively communicate the Gospel to the Japanese people. So with two hours of book studying and talking and communicating with the Japanese people day by day, it is a lot of work. Someday, I'll be able to express myself effectively in Japanese.
Joseph came back with his family and is settling back in. It is good to have some family here as I don't feel like I'm doing this work of being a missionary alone. Both churches (Hari church and Life Song church) are getting ready for the repairing of the siding of the church. Also they are preparing for the team that is coming from America to help out. Everyone is excited and getting busy. Please continue to pray for Japan and my students. Also that there will be revival in Japan and many people will come to know the Lord as their Savior. God bless...
