This month we’ve been blessed with so many opportunities to talk about our ministry in Japan. For those who haven’t had time to keep up with us, here’s a summary of what we’ve been doing:

We shared about our ministry at the Northern California OMS Holiness Missions Conference at Santa Clara Valley Japanese Christian Church in Campbell.
March 8: Reaching Japanese for Christ Conference, SoCal
We attended the Southern CA RJC Conference at Wintersburg Prebyterian Church in Santa Ana. Made new networking contacts and learned new information about the profile of different generational groups of Japanese, contextualizaton of materials for Japanese VBS programs, and cultural differences to consider when sharing the gospel with Japanese.

We hosted a student who came with the Younglife Japan ministry team from Chiba. Went with the group to Yosemite, hosted a soccer clinic and ate a lot of great food.
