Vacation Bible School

Dear Prayer Partners:

The Calvary Tennessee Team is in Japan from June 5 through 12! They come to prayer, distribute literature, witness one on one, lead seminars, share in various meetings and encourage the Christians here. Pray for their health, for safety as we travel many miles, and pray especially for divine encounters for them to meet those who want to know Christ. Thank you for already praying for them since our last update. Continue to ask God to break down strongholds and to how Himself strong through prayer.

Sunday June 6 three people from Tabiji group home will be baptized at Mobara. We are borrowing their baptism pool, which is a fish tank!!! One of these ladies is handicapped and the other is 87 so we are little reluctant to have it at the ocean. Pray for the Mobara church members to be encouraged. They have just called a new pastor.

Mrs. Matsu will follow the Lord in baptism on Thursday in the ocean. Pray that before that day Mr. Yo will decide to follow the Lord in baptism. Your prayers are being answered for his family as they have begun worship in their home.

The door seems to the opening for a simple church start in Saitama just north of Tokyo as well. Mrs. Ima, has four friends there who want to meet to learn about God and study the Bible. One is a Christian. Pray that this group of ladies will be saved, they will get a vision to reach their family and neighbors for Christ. The family we visited in Matsudo is willing to open their home for a “house church” Pray that as lost people gather to hear the word, that they will be saved. The wife is a Christian, but the rest of the family is not.

God is opening door of opportunity for witness all across the area surrounding Tokyo where we are working. Pray that we will be obedient to the Holy Spirit and able to daily discern His leading as we make crucial decisions.

As God leads you, read back through our previous updates and pray for the requests that are there and thank God for all the victories that we see through your prayers. If you have deleted our updates from your computer, just look at www.JGPNetwork.org and you can glance through them and pray.

Vacation Bible School is around the corner for most churches. Some of you have written as asked about information for your children. This week there should be a prayer walk for children on our website. We are working on a 5 minute DVD to send to some of you who have requested something to show your children on Japan. It should be ready to mail in a few days. We would love to post it on our website but unfortunately we can’t afford to do that!!!
