|English Teachers in Japan|
NEWS CONCERNING JAPAN
1. Pray for guidance and protection for pastors Maki and Okubo, the Funehiki Evangelical Church and the school staff at Wakakusa school. Pray for protection and provision for the Japanese people affected by the recent tragic events. Pray that the hearts of the people will be opened to the gospel.
2. Pray for our American English teachers. They will be leaving Funehiki/Tamura Friday, March 18, for Tokyo and will fly to the U.S. Tuesday, March 22. Five of the teachers are scheduled to return to Japan when things are normalized and safe.
3. The orientation for 8 new American English teachers will be held at Grace Fellowship on
March 27 - April 1. Their departure for Japan will probably be delayed until a later date.
Our Celeste Laser will be one of the returning teachers. Returning to the U.S. after this traumatic event may leave her emotional system shocked. Pray for her and be thoughtful.
$1,800 was collected this past Sunday service for the Japan (Funehiki) relief fund. The Mansfield Sister City Committee is also raising money to help our sister city in Japan.
