We have been encouraged by new partnering churches and individuals joining our financial support team. Many churches and individuals have increased their support. However, we are still about $300 per month behind in our needed support. Even though we are so close, without a miracle it looks like we will be delayed in departing on schedule in early August. We will have to delay returning to Japan for our leadership training, church planting mobilization, spiritual mentoring, and ongoing compassion ministries. You can still help by monthly giving or a one-time gift. And if you know anyone who you would recommend for our ministry partners, please let us know.
