Driving to Fukuoka Sunday!

Hello everyone,
We are here in Tokyo "stuck" but in the center of God's Will. He is so Good. Just doing our best to "walk in the Spirit". It is our 4th day of our extended stay here in Fuchu, but God knows what He is doing. The van is FIXED!!!!!!!! Hurray! Zach and I are planning on leaving early Sunday morning and will drive led by the Spirit of God. The van cost about $300 dollars to fix. It needed a distributer (whole unit), battery, and air filter (one of the dirtiest I have ever seen). God sent the right mechanic and he ordered the part and whala! It is fixed! In His Timing! But this is incredible! An old friend of Zach and ours, came up to us and gave Zach an envelop. He said it was for the trip. We did not know how much it was going to cost to fix the car, but in the back of my mind I thought "this is going to pay for the car to be fixed". It was the exact amount (I just had to pay the tax, ha!) God is good! So.......... we continue to walk this walk by faith. Faith in the Son of God who loves us. Please join in with us for a safe drive, good car travels and good weather (the typhoon is coming our way).

The Eye is Disappearing

Thank you everyone for praying. Prayer definitely works. It is not the last line of defense but the first play of offense. Through prayer strongholds are broken. To God be all the glory!

Hurry Up and Wait!

We came to Tokyo ready to fire on all cylinders. He had a job to do, get our equipment and move it to the new campus in Fukuoka. Well, God has something else in store. The van is not working. The mechanic said that the part will be in tomorrow (Saturday). So we have been waiting, waiting on the Lord and seeing what He has in store for us. We did some extra training. Visited some brothers in Christ. Doing our best to be ready for the next move. God is in control. In His timing we will move out to Fukuoka. We will continue to enjoy our time with Jesus.

New steps of faith...personally


Here at CCBC Japan, we are encouraged to live by faith, and also take steps of faith. As a school, we are taking a big step of faith by moving our teaching site from Tokyo to Fukaoka. 

But as we corporately take steps of faith - we know that the time comes when our awesome interns must also take steps into what God has for them next. This is the season for Tamiko Murakami. 

God is opening doors for her to go alongside the church at Calvary Chapel Iwakuni - and serve alongside Pastor Glen & Farah Phipps. Why we are sad to see our sister go - yet we are blessed to send her to our extended family in Iwakuni. 

Tamiko was with us here as a student for one year, and then after graduation, returned as an intern where she has served for about five and half years. We have seen a lot of growing in her spiritually, and how God has matured her into a wonderful woman of God. She is a fantastic translator, a good dorm steward for our girls, and great friend. 

We will miss your gentleness & beautiful smile friend - but we are excited to hear how the Lord will use you in your next steps.
