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.


There is still a need for more teachers for this program. this is a great opportunity to serve the Lord, Japanese students and your own growth process. If you have a college degree and would like more information or would like to apply go

We finished our annual meetings and conference on April 9. The few comments we have heard were all very positive. We hope you will take time to email us and let us know how the conference served you and what we could do to make it better. We would love to share your thoughts here in the newsletter.  

Mark you calendar for next years conference NOW. It will be April 20-21, 2012. We don't want to think that far ahead, but unless we mark the date something will interfere.


Speaking of calendars - see the one at the end of the newsletter!
