MISSIONARY NEWS – THE RICH FAMILY – These past few months we have really sensed the power of your prayers. God has done so much for us here in Japan. On April 1st, A 70 year old lady that has been studying Bible and English with us for 7 years received Christ as her Savior. What a change we have seen in her life! In May we traveled to Koriyama Baptist Church and unloaded a number of items for 8 different Pastors near the nuclear disaster area, then on to 2 different refugee housing areas. We also gave each family a special letter and a Gospel of John. We meet at 5 am almost every Tuesday with Dr. O. as he runs to the hospital. He was part of the team that flew to Mt. Ontake to help after it blew recently. Pray for his salvation. He has given permission for us to have a half hour concert in the ICU on December 23rd (our 3rd year in a row). Pray for: the hospital ministry; the Thanksgiving Outreach on November 23rd; the American Family Christmas on December 21st; our New Years’ Service on January 1st; Cathy and I as we prepare for a 6-week furlough in the southern states the end of January; our new Children’s Choir (Joyful Singers) who will sing at several events mentioned; and that Mr. I. will soon come to the Lord.
