Praise Reports, Prayer Requests

There is so much to be thankful for, and so much prayer to request. We are so blessed! Today, the gas company came so we can have hot water and fuel for the stove (water heater pictured above). When he came, he stated that he would upgrade our service pipes because they are old, but we would need to pay for a new water heater. He stated the price, 55,000 yen (550.00 dollars). We asked if there was another way, he stated that he would talk to the rental office. He came back stating that the owners of the property will pay for it. Praise the Lord! He also stated that the electricians will arrive tuesday and they will make sure that all of the lights, outlets, and broken fixtures would be replaced. We are blown away.
There is a section of the roof that leaks, so we went to the local Matsumotos (like Home depot, but smaller and pricier, I do miss Home depot) and we priced fixing the roof. The problem is, that I do not read Japanese Kanji, Hiragana, or Katakana, so I don't know what to buy. Well, after spending some time there, we realized that I need some help. I prayed, Lord send us some help. Well Ayu called her mom, and asked for a reference. I called a local handyman friend Max, (Quint Betts good buddy) and he stated that he will come out Saturday and take a look, either replacing the roof or fixing it. Praise the Lord again!
God is so good! Please keep us in your prayers. Pray that the gas company, and the electrician come and fix everything that is broken. Pray for Max that God gives him the wisdom to either fix the leak or replace the broken roof. Please pray that we will be able to get a pressure washer to wash down the building this weekend and begin painting the following week. We truly appreciate all of your love and prayers, thank you so much. Love, Pastor Tommy
