John Published

July 27th, 2009 by John

John was pleased to find out that he had a few articles published in an anthology of the Elijah Group, a think-tank of Japanese businessmen, pastors and missionaries dedicated to transforming Japan spiritually. John and three other men launched the Elijah Group about 6 years ago.

Two articles that were published were “The Purpose of the Elijah Group” and “A Theology of Transformation.” Like Elijah cover

John has published several magazine articles and has appeared in some acknowledgments of books. It is interesting that the first article published in a book appears in Japanese.

John was just talking with a woman who has had Japanese home stay students in her home over the past several years. She did not know how to share her experience with Christ with them. We have materials on how to share your journey with Japanese. Also there is RJC ( www.rjcnetwork.org/). The Reaching Japanese for Christ Midwest will be held in the Chicago area October 9 and 10th. More information is available at rjcmidwest.wordpress.com. If you are in the area please attend, and tell them John sent you. There are networks throughout the US.
