I did not want Zach to come to the airport. It is difficult saying goodbye there, but he wanted to come. So Pastor Cisco, Jay Garner, his son and Zach made the trip to the airport with us. We love you Zach and we are totally going to miss you here in Okinawa. Serve the Lord with all your heart in California. Love, your family in Okinawa.
It was insane leaving the airport in LA. There are so many people going on vacation. This is the line to get your baggage screened before they are loaded on the planes. I feel sorry for the baggage handlers. I cannot even imagine how many bags they have to load every day. That cannot be good for their backs. Praise the Lord we made it to our plane in time.
Praise the Lord they are coming soon! God continues to open doors for them as they have been selling all of their earthly goods in California. They are planning on moving to Okinawa in mid September. Please continue to pray for them as they make preparations for them and their daughter. God bless you Dean's we are praying for you all.

It is a blessing that Daniel and Joel are able to teach english in Naha City. It is a wonderful outreach to the Okinawan people. They have a pretty good group. At the same time they use their english skills they are able to communicate conversationally. Praise the Lord for the time when they will be able to speak to the Japanese in their own language.
Daniel received his new missionary visa! He is allowed to continue to minister with us here in Okinawa Japan. We are so blessed how God continues to open up doors for our missionaries out here. Please continue to pray for him that the Lord would lead and guide him.

The Praise Team led by Israel Dominguez did a great job as they led in worship Sunday morning. In the upper picture we see the youth group meeting for second service in the youth room. The morning services were filled with blessings for the whole family.
Niel and Vanessa now live in Murrieta California. Please pray for them as Niel is now out of the Airforce and is looking for a job. Damien and Sandra (left) are leaving for England to start a new Calvary Chapel, they leave in a few days. Mike and Lori (right) will also be leaving for Texas to eventually plant a new Calvary Chapel. It was a real blessed evening.
Andrew just emailed me about the incredible trip that Yoshua and he had on Tonaki Island. They just went out there in faith, not knowing where they were going to stay, but God hooked them up! Praise the Lord! God is so good!. These are some pictures that he sent me. He told me the story about how God brought a Christian to them who has been praying that God would start a church on the island. He has been praying for 9 years. Andrew feels that God would have them continue to take steps of faith out there. Please continue to pray for Tonaki Jima and what the Lord has in store for them next.
