Merry Christmas – 2013

Grace_SignMerry Christmas!

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.   – Isaiah 7:14  

Our hope an prayer for you this Christmas, is that God would suppress you with blessings beyond expected and His Joy beyond your ability to contain.  We pray your heart will be filled with the promise of His presence “Immanuel”.

We will see you in January!

We are usually home visiting family and friends during this season, but this year we will have to say Merry Christmas to everyone from afar.  We are being blessed with a new granddaughter in January, so we have postponed our homecoming visit in order to be present at her birth.   Of course, we plan to see as many of our friends as we can while we are in California.

We would like to set up a couple of home meetings where we can share what God has been doing in our part of Japan, so if you would like to host an evening or afternoon gathering please let us know.  SO MANY wonderful blessings to share!

If you visit the website:

You will notice things have really changed.  It is our New Years resolution to purpose to communicate what God is doing in a much better way.  Reworking the website is part of this commitment.  We want you to know better what your prayers and support are doing in Japan.
