It continues to happen. I’m amazed again at how the Lord connects people for the advance of His Kingdom in Japan. This last week JoAnn and I had coffee with Dawn Birkner, a missionary in Kagawa, Japan. She has a great burden for the unchurched towns in Japan. She desires to mobilize church-planting teams and praying people. The next day I had an email from David Spurdle who shared about his desire to mobilize people to pray for the unchurched towns and cities in Japan. (See the side-bar concerning “Yoke Fellowship.”
Then yesterday I was amazed by another connection. When we met Dawn, she shared about a woman from Kagawa who just married a young farmer from the Midwest, USA. Yesterday I was sitting across the table from the younger sister from Kagawa! And she was on her way to a Christian camp here in Washington where she will hear the gospel for the first time.
I am amazed and excited to be part of the network of people reaching out to Japanese here in the USA and Canada. And I am excited about how this is impacting Japan!
