WHAT DID GOD DO?
- John was in Mongolia Sep 23-28 for the GCPN – East Asia Network. God encouraged and challenged all in attendance. John’s presentations on multiplication went very well, learned a lot, and he enjoyed meeting new Mongolian church planters.
- Thanks for praying for the Church Planting Institute (CPI) Leadership Team planning retreat last month. We had great discussions and some key decisions were made (news later).
- Just last week, while John was in Mongolia and Elaine was in Japan, we signed a contract to sell our Rockford home. Now we are in the midst of preparing for the sale closing on October 30th. Ask God to grant smooth preparations.
HIGHLIGHTS FOR PRAYER
OCTOBER IS A CRUCIAL AND BUSY MONTH
- We share a testimony at the Crossroad Church on October 13th.
- John leads a seminar on healthy churches to the Tokyo area pastors of the Christian Reformed Denomination on October 21-22. Pray for good preparation.
- In October, Elaine already busy with classes, mentoring, and meetings will be sharing our future plans with the ladies in all her classes.
- Registrations are closed for next month’s CPI National Conference November 13-15, but we are squeezing the last few in and are nearly sold out. It will be the biggest ever! Pray as preparations continue through October and into November.
- Keep praying for our several book projects which need to be completed this month in English and Japanese.
