Missionary Robin White serves with Global Partners in Nagoya, Japan. He recently wrote with an update on the work…

Hey Everyone!

Big news. This month one of my English students became a Christian! This student is a lady who has been coming to my Wednesday morning English classes for seven years! She recently stayed after English class to tell me and some others from my church that she had become a believer and is preparing to be baptized! This great news encourages us all. It was a timely reminder that if we’re faithful to plant and water the Gospel, God will make the seeds grow.

Please take a moment to thank God with me for new life in Christ. And pray that I will remain faithful as God continues to bring the harvest. This ministry is a long-term investment, and we praise the Lord for what He can do. Please pray for our ongoing English ministry in Nagoya – especially for the non-Christian students.

For more frequent and specific updates, please join my email list or check out my website: I’m grateful for the adventure God has taken me on over the past many years, and for your partnership in it.

Thank you!

– Robin

A Remembrance Day Prayer This Saturday (November 11th) our nation will observe Remembrance Day. We provide the following prayer you may use to respect this occasion. It is adapted from the Methodist Book of Worship: “O God, Our Heavenly Father, we bless you again for the remembrance of this day, when by Your providence, and the might of Your arm, You made war to cease. Accept our praise and thanksgiving. And on this day we remember before You, all who have fought and died so that we may live. Accept our gratitude and make us more worthy of their sacrifices. Help us to follow more closely in the steps of your Son, Jesus, so that we may one day stand in Your presence and experience Your perfect, abiding peace. Amen.”
