Prayer Partner Letter January 2022

 

 

Dear Prayings Friends

“Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”(1 Cor. 15:58). I read this to our team before the last mini-concert. What an encouragement!

The landlord wants too much for the room behind the church so we will decline his offer. Please pray that as a church we will be ready to buy if he decides to sell.

The Hitokita house renovation is now complete and it looks really nice. God willing we will soon have a short-term missionary couple staying there and doing evangelism for a year. Please pray that God builds his church in this unchurched housing estate!

Covid infections have now picked up again. We haven’t returned to our self-restrictive attendance at worship but we may have to if it gets worse. Please pray for wisdom and unity.

We had record attendance at our last couple of mini-concerts at Yuriage. However at the same time there have been murmurings that we are putting pressure on people to become Christians. We will continue to be clear about the gospel (because there is no point in doing it otherwise) but pray on for conversions!

At Gamo we have good attendance at events and there are 2-3 genuinely interested inquirers who come to ‘ordinary’ bible teaching meetings as well. Again please pray for conversions.

Our friend and OMF colleague for 33 years, Martin Ghent has to return to N America for a kidney transplant. He is a hard-working and godly missionary so please pray for his complete recovery. Please download the OMF Prayer Guide for NE Japan but please don’t distribute it or put it on Facebook etc. Thank you for your prayers and support!

love in Christ Rod and Glenda
