Merry Christmas to you all. We are winding up another awesome year of celebrating Christ and ministering in Japan. As we wrap up the year, we are praising God for his grace and blessings in ministry. In a busy year there were many highlights:
- Training the largest number of participants at the CPI National Conference in October.
- Mentoring key leaders in Gospel Renewal at two Grace Week Intensives in February.
- Partnering with our Rengo association and alongside Converge Japan, year round.
- The publishing of John’s Book: Multiplying Churches in Japanese Soil in October.
- Evangelizing dozens of Japanese through our home and ministries.
- Encouraging a larger vision for church planting in Japan through the Vision Festa in July.
- Training an entire international mission Japan team in church planting in Japan in May.
- Building partners through East Asia Global Church Planting Network (GCPN) in September.
- Teaching the message of Christ’s Gospel to many all year round.
Looks like next year will bring even more opportunities. Much planning still waits up the road.
