Our God is worthy of all of our praise! We weren’t sure if he knew what he was doing in calling us to Japan, but after this trip, we feel more confident in his call than ever before.
For one, Japan is home to some incredible food!
And the architecture is beautiful!
Oh yeah, and the people are incredible, too!
There is so much beauty in Japanese culture. But, there is also so much brokenness. Superstition hangs heavy in the air. People visit shrines like the one below where they say prayers, give money, and purchase charms in the hope that they’ll have a successful business and their kids will get into a good college.
But, we had the opportunity to join the Japanese church in shining the light of Jesus.
We also got to spend some time with some of the missionary kids that we’ll be ministering to as well. Unfortunately, we didn’t take any pictures… classic Cains.
Thank you all so much for your prayers and financial support. We are so thankful that we’ve got a whole team of people back here in the US praying for and giving toward the advancement of God’s kingdom in the nation of Japan. If you would like to join us, there are a few things you can do:
1. Visit our “partner with us” page above to begin giving toward the glory of God in Japan.
2. Connect us with the missions committee at your church. We’d love to share about what God is doing and invite others to join us.
3. Let us know when you’re available to talk. We’d love to tell you more about this ministry.
