Dear Prayer Partners
Greetings in Jesus’ name from Sendai!
We are thankful many of the members at church are eager to please the Lord. Attendance has been good in the services, bible studies and prayer meetings and people are hungry to be taught the bible.
Almost every Sunday we have someone new in church. Please pray for them to continue.
It has been a joy to restart mini concerts in Yuriage - the place where the tsunami evacuees are housed. Most of the people are old-timers who have heard the gospel many times. Struggling to get a date for October though.
Some church members are still very anxious at us having meetings and holy communion - though we are super careful with hygiene which has allayed some of their fears.
The Hitokita house is getting repaired nicely. The floors, and wallpapering still need doing and then we can apply for religious registration. We need missionaries / Japanese workers to live there and at Gamo to evangelise the neighbours. But the structures are in place!
On 1 Oct at Gamo, church member Mrs Matsui will be doing a paper craft after which we will have an evangelistic message. Please pray for a church to be formed at Gamo. Hallelujah meeting on 15th at Yamamoto.
Thank you for your prayers and support!
love from Rod and Glenda
