Springing Forward – April

April brings many more of God’s blessings during our Home Assignment. God has been working.

  • Family – Much praise to God for his blessing of our four generation reunion last month.
  • Japan Disaster Response Teams – The first team of the year has been very effective in cleaning houses, gathering people (100 at one meeting), and touching lives with the Hope of Christ.
  • Learning – John was able to gain new insights by attending a great class at Trinity on developing leaders and the Converge Ignite Church Planting Conference in Phoenix.
  • Future Ministry – The Japan Field Council approved our desired work designation for when we return to Japan in early August (see below).


This month begins our 6 week tour of Converge Rocky Mountain. In addition to church visits, we will be meeting with key leaders, completing writing projects, and enjoying the mountains.
