Just wanted to post a short message to ask you to pray. We had a wonderful and refreshing meeting last week with our team here at Ridge Haven, under the ministry and encouragement of Archie Moore. MTW’s Living In Grace training started yesterday. LIG is a training for outgoing missionaries, focused on how the gospel of grace changes the way we live and work. For most of our lives Riva and I have understood and even studied the good news about Jesus, but we need you to pray for the Lord to sink it down deep into our hearts this week. There is nothing to send us to Japan or keep us there apart from a living and abiding sense of god’s love for us. We just want to cherish that reality on a daily basis. If we are going to minister well, we need the Spirit to work on us this week, so please join us in asking him to do so.
