Hi Everyone!

We had a very full Easter Day in Nagoya. We baptized a lady who recently came to believe in Jesus. At lunch time we had a fellowship, and in the afternoon we hosted an Easter Party. Twenty-seven people from my English program came to this. We played games, sang songs, and ate snacks. I also shared the true Easter story. Easter is gaining more attention in Japan these days, as yet another “Western holiday” that people want to celebrate. Let’s pray that this will give more people a hearing of the Gospel!

April is the start of a new year in Japanese society: a new school year, business year, and church year! The busy season is about to begin in ministry as well. Next month there will be lots of traveling, preaching and special events that continue through the spring and summer. Please pray for God’s protection, anointing and direction for these service opportunities.

You can get more frequent updates of my work at my website or by following me on Facebook or Twitter.

As always, thank you for your prayers and support.
