Ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, Knock and the door will be opened to you.
As you know, we have been in a place of asking, seeking and knocking for awhile now; waiting for God’s leading and direction as we seek to live out His calling for us in Japan. There is a particular area of Japan that has continually been on our minds, even though we have never been there. But with a bit more lee to travel within Japan we have made arrangements to go spy out that land, in fact next week, from Friday, Jan.22 until Monday, Jan.21
The name of the city is Sasebo, in the Nagasaki prefecture on the island of Kyushu. That is the island directly south of the main island of Honshu, Japan. It is a coastal city on the west coast of Japan, with an American military base nearby.
Our intention is to go, pray, listen and discern whether this is where God wants us to be doing ministry.
Please pray for us to hear and know God’s will as we venture out into unknown (to us) territory. Pray for divine appointments/meetings during our visit to Sasebo. Pray that God will show us where the needs are and how we can be His heart and hands to meet them.
We will be updating you soon after we return.
