Missionary Robin White serves with Global Partners in Japan. This week he posted an update on his service…

Hi Everyone!

Thank you for your prayers during these summer months. Last month I served in three different places: Nagoya, Kyoto and even far away Cambodia!

First, we hosted our home church’s two-day children’s camp here in Nagoya. Twenty-four children attended. Most were from unchurched families. Many made their first connection with us through my English classes. It is awesome to see that group coming to church events and hearing the Gospel. Please pray that God will continue to work in the lives of these kids and their families.

After the children’s camp, I was off to Kyoto, where I taught an English Bible study at the Immanuel Kyoto – Nishi Church. I’m filling in there every other month while their resident missionary Andrea is back in the United States for her furlough. There are a bunch of non-Christians connecting with the church through there. Pray that God will continue to work in their lives.

Finally, last week, I traveled to Cambodia for the regional meeting of missionaries. This year we focused on gaining vision clarity. This is an ongoing process, particularly in Japan, where we have a small team but big dreams.

Please continue to pray with us for vision and direction. Please pray for next week’s Youth Camp in Nagano. Please also pray for our next English Bible Study which will start in two weeks.

Thank you again for your prayers, financial support, and encouragement!


Farewell Reception Today we will say express our gratitude for the ministry service of Lucas Robb in a brief reception in the gym. Lucas served as our Summer Intern in 2011, as our Youth Ministries Director from 2013-2015, and as our Director of Spiritual Formation from 2015-2017. We thank God for his service and hope you will also express your best wishes to him during this reception.

Sunrise Nursing Home Service will take place next Sunday afternoon at 1:30pm. Plan now to join us as we share loving greetings and Good News with the residents in this local facility. Speak with Chris Lai or Norma Ashley to learn more.

Thank You Dear Church Family, Thank you all for your prayers, phone calls, and well wishes with regards to my Mom’s passing. This was a true blessing. Pat Pitre & Family
