Calling for prayer

Often thwarted plans remind us that God is moving and Satan is jealous! That may sound weird to some of you, but the Bible tells us that there are unseen realities at play behind our visible experiences. And while Satan’s attacks assure us that God is at work here, we covet your prayers that we might be able to trust him in the midst of the struggles. Here’s what’s up:

1. Our ministry building (CBI) was robbed on Monday evening and somewhere between $14,000-$16,000 was stolen. Please pray as we work with police and figure out what to do from here, and that God would provide funds to replace those that have been lost in this incident.

2. A Japanese partner in Tokyo has a 14 year old son who fell breaking two vertebrae and injuring his spinal cord. Right now he cannot move his hands or feet and doctors say he might not ever recover. Please pray for peace for their family and for complete healing for the boy.

3. Many teammates in Japan have felt a particular spiritual darkness recently and have suffered spiritually (not being able to sleep, read their bibles, or pray) and emotionally (depression, anger, etc.). Please pray that God would give his peace to these friends, protect their children, and allow his gospel to continue to reach the Japanese despite these setbacks.

We will be gathering as a team Sunday night (Sunday morning in the States) to pray specifically about these things. Would you join us in prayer during that time? I am so glad we serve a God who loves us, provides us with strength to fight, protection, and peace (Psalm 59). We’re also incredibly thankful for partners like you!

  1. Reading Psalm 4 today and praying for y’all . In his distress David called out to The Lord . God hears our prayers. Trust in The Lord . Vs 6 many are asking who can show us any good? Let the light of your face shine upon us O Lord. Vs7 you have filled my heart with greater joy then when their grain and new wine bound.

  2. I stopped to pray now and will continue. We will definitely join you in prayer and be lifting you all up on Sunday. Psalm 105:4 says: “Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.” (NIV) We are seeking HIS face for YOU! 🙂 Be encouraged. Our God is the God of hope and power. He will turn evil into good. You’re in GOOD HANDS!

  4. Thank you for your updates.  We are always encouraged to hear how God is at work expanding His kingdom in Japan.  My family and I will be praying for you and the needs of your team.
