We have both been very encouraged with the progress of raising more funding for our church planting, training lay people, mentoring, and disaster response ministries in Japan. We arrived in the US with a significant support deficit, many churches and individuals have stepped up to strengthen our support base. After discussions with our Home Office staff we determined that we would have to delay, for the first time, our return to Japan. We still need to raise $500 per month. We know that a few churches and individuals could give $100 per month, others could give $50/month, and many could give $25, $15 or $10 per month. Will you consider before God whether you can be more a part of our ministry? We would like to soon make plans for our return to Japan.
