Prayer Partner Letter May 2020

 Dear Prayer Partners

Greetings in Jesus’ name from South Africa! 

Our flights back to Japan are still on hold while airlines wait for the lockdown to end. No one is sure when that will be. We are allowed out for 3 hours exercise a day from 6-9 am which we make good use of. After that we have been able to keep ourselves usefully busy. Fish Hoek is a very nice spot to be stuck in.

Japan has recently relaxed its national state of emergency meaning that church services may resume so long as social distancing is maintained. Our church has asked members to come on alternative Sundays and sit 2m apart.

Rod has done online sermons every 3 days and uploaded them to the Sendai Church Facebook page. They seem to have had a wide circulation. We have also had prayer meetings by Zoom! Dr ‘Helpful Wisteria’ husband of a believer has started studying the bible. Please pray for him!

Stephen Kim our Korean colleague will go home after the service on 24th May. Please pray that God looks after the church, keeps it well-fed and free from error, that new people will seek the Lord and that believers will  be revived and refreshed. Please pray for the Lord to expedite the flights and for guidance to continue ministry from afar until then.

Thank you for your love and prayers and a special thanks to those who support us in these straightened times! 

love from Rod and Glenda
