“Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah”
Missionary Robin White serves in Nagoya, Japan with Global Partners. He recently wrote with an update on his ministry…
Hi everyone, Thanks for your prayers the past two months. I have been very busy for me here, with lots of travel, meetings, and a couple of preaching opportunities. I’m thankful for God’s protection and guidance.
One of my recent works was to lead worship and preaching our church at Nirayama. It is a very small fellowship, but on the day of my visit we had six visitors! One of the pastors told me afterwards, that two young girls who were visiting that day were showing an interest in Jesus. Join me in praying that these young ladies will respond to the Gospel as the pastor follows up with them. Please also remember me and my English students as we continue to give much in the name of Jesus here in this area.
Again, thank you so much for your prayers and support!
Graduates Reception today after the worship service, we invite you to stop in the gym to greet and congratulate our graduates. This reception is the second in our series of Summer Sunday Stick-Around Socials. Take these opportunity to get to know fellow believers and visitors to our church!
Time to Pray our Wednesday evening time of intercession and sharing gathers in the Fellowship Room at 7:15pm on this weeknight. If you have a request or praise to share, we invite you to write it on a card from the pew rack and place it in the miniature church on the far right corner of the platform.
Thank you to everyone who served in last Sunday’s Fathers Day Barbeque to provide, barbeque and serve the lunch we enjoyed. This was a blessing and encouragement to many.
Next Sunday we will participate in a Canada 150 Community Outreach. Please wear the color red next Sunday morning to worship, and dress casually. We will pray, serve and give to our community on this special day for celebration! We will also share in a short reception afterwards. Plan to stick around for the fun.
