1. Pray for the preparations for our very first Japanese Grace Week May 27-30. Ask God to grant wisdom, energy, and unity in preparing the presenters and mentors. Pray for registrations.
2. We are very heavy with several writing projects right now. Elaine is trying to get out her bilingual bible study and John is working on the Japanese version of his church planting book and a new book on Japanese beliefs and the gospel.
3. As registration for the November 13-15 CPI National Conference has opened, pray it will sell-out again! Pray for all the preparations busily going on.
4. The new Converge Japanese Initiative leader, Brian Lusky, is visiting Japan this month. Pray for meetings he will have with us, other missionaries, and key Japanese leaders.
5. Elaine has a lot of preparation for our mission Field Council on April 9-11.
