Thank you for those of you who support me and have the same heart I have for the gospel in Japan. Lately I haven’t made as many updates as I’d like but I have been doing a lot of background research for future updates I hope to post here soon.
Wanted to thank you also for your prayers Last summer while in Tokyo as I sought out opportunities to be in Japan long-term. It was a huge step of faith to leave my job and ministry in the Los Angeles area, amazingly I saw the Lord answer all of your prayers! That summer He provided me a place for me to live, an English teaching job, and connected me with a church planting ministry called WorldVenture that is seeing amazing things happen in Japan… the Lord also did much more with me personally and I am very excited for the next chapter of life.
I’ve been back in the States now since August going through the application process with WorldVenture and am preparing to return to Tokyo by March 1st to work with their Innovative Ministries Team. Upon returning I will work within the Japan Evangelical Missionary Association along side pastors and ministry leaders to develop gospel centered communities that bring Christians and non-Christians together. I also hope to start developing a social networking site to connect Japanese churches, Christians, and seekers together. On top of that I will have the freedom to take Japanese language classes and continue in my study of Japanese culture… I couldn’t ask for a better job that matches my God given passion for Japan 🙂
