Japan Workers in Trouble

August 29th, 2009 by John

Japan has the largest unemployment rate right now than since the end of World War II.

Also those employed are not very happy.  A recent global workforce study by Towers and Perrin said that Japanese workers are worldwide the least “engaged” in their work with only 28% of workers liking their jobs.

Pray that the church in Japan would be engaged in bringing true hope to Japanese.

Very Untypical Four Days

December 5th, 2008 by John

We are often asked what a typical day is for us.  Well, we are still out searching for one.  But sometimes we have very untypical days. John was recently on a 4 day trip to 4 locations, 3 cities, 3 prefectures, 1421.7 km (883.4 miles) mainly by bullet train, 2 interviews, a sermon on forgiveness, sermon training for lay people, an ad hoc mission Executive Committee mtg., the Rengo Mission Liaison committee meeting, the Rengo annual meeting, and a presentation to the Rengo Annual Meeting.  Everything God blessed but John is still recovering.  Then there’s Elaine’s days too.
