Pray With Us

Core Value:
Gospel Spreading (K Family) 

Pray for them as they take their first 7-month Home Ministry Assignment which includes joys in reconnecting and establishing new sending partnerships, lots of travel, starting at new schools (the kids). 

Pray for continued language acquisition and deepening relationships. Mark finished a first round of language classes and Rachel will resume. Pray for deepening relationships despite COVID, language/cultural barriers and temporary distance. 

Pray for Japanese pastors, many of whom are tired and discouraged after long periods of uncertainty during COVID. Pray for encouragement and a renewed trust in the Lord’s sovereignty and goodness.
