What a joy to send our sister out again as she serves The Lord in Israel. Takako will be leaving for Tokyo April 3rd and then to Israel on the 4th. Please keep her in your prayers as she steps out in faith again for Jesus! God is so proud of His Daughter. Let's support her in the Name of Jesus!

Temote and Nozomi's Baby Dedication

Baby Riku was dedicated this Easter morning and it was a total blessing. Temote' family were all there to celebrate with us. Their baby is such a cutie! Children are so special to Jesus, they should be special to us.

Lectures with Trevor Raichura

Sorry Trevor, not the greatest, clearest picture but this is the one that was sent to me. Thank you bro for blessing the Bible College Students with your ministry lectures. I hope that this is the beginning of many to come in the future. God bless you as you continue to serve The Lord in the Osaka area. To God be the Glory!

Headin back to Japan!

It was a blessed trip bring able to teach at CCBC Murrieta the "Practical Pastoral Ministry" class. At the same time I was blessed to teach at the different Calvary's as well as lead worship for Jesus. My last day was a super blast being able to meet up with Pastor Brian, Phil Twente and Carl Westerlund. Fruitful trip in the "Name of Jesus". Got more clarity, received more vision "To the Glory of God"!

Surfing in California

This was a first for me: Night Surfing! The reflection of the moon on the water made it available to surf way past the sun going down. The moon reflected right off the water. Pretty incredible! I was blown away. Good rides, good times, just me and Jesus on the waves.

Beautiful Picture from CCBCTOKYO

This is the scene from the roof of the college in Tokyo. Can you see snow capped Mt. Fuji in the background. Incredible! Any house or apartment with a view of Fuji is more expensive and we are blessed in Tokyo! We are blessed beyond words!

Pastor Louie from CCNorco

Pastor Louie came to CCBC Murrieta speaking on the topic of a Pastor and being involved with MISSIONS. And who could have done a better job than Louie who is the Director of GO Ministries who is in charge of over 80 missionaries and their families. He is heavily and Heavenly involved with overseas missions. The students were blessed!

Pastor Cisco Rocked it!

He did a fabulous job teaching the CCBC Murrieta students on the importance of assisting the Pastor in Ministry. He used the letters A.S.S.I.S.T. To break down their roles and duties. Great job bro!

CCGinowan Youth

Yuko doing some teaching with the Youth Sunday Morning. This is a good group of youth. May God continue to bless the young people at CCG. They are the future of the Church now! "God bless and grow the Christian Youth of Okinawa". In Jesus Name!

Hannah in Hawaii

She made it safely and is hanging with the Orpilla's. Their kids are beautiful! Hannah is eating at her mom's favorite Shaved Ice place; "Matsumoto's Shaved Ice". Oh man! You know Joanna is jealous!

We are super blessed to have Mike back with us again this week for our special Passion Week up to Easter. He is teaching this Sunday morning, Sunday night, and Wednesday night.

Blessed to Lead Worship at Murrieta

Wednesday morning they asked me to lead in worship for the morning devotions at CCBC Murrieta. I guess they wanted an "old guy" to lead. But I incorporated Sean from the Peru Campus to help me on the Cahone. Thanks Bro!

Pastor Mike at CCBC Murrieta

Pastor Mike Torres came and blessed us at our class here in Murrieta. He spoke on the blessings and difficulties of taking over an existing ministry. It was an excellent class. Thank you brother

Great morning Chat with Chuck Robb in Higashimatsushima

It was literally morning for both of us. Chuck was "burning the midnight oil" doing some ministry stuff so we were able to get on Google+ which was a total blessing. Please continue to pray for the Robb's as they faithfully serve The Lord up in the Tohoku area. Praise God!

Students Receive their Ipad Mini's

This Spring Semester the students who attended full time at CCBCJapan received IPad mini's to help in their studies. Because we use the internet and the modern technologies that we have today we believe that the students need to be equipped to be able to use the modern tools for ministry. They will use this tool for note taking, homework and general ministry needs. To God be the Glory!

Pastoral Ministry Class

I am blessed to teach 18 young men in our practical pastoral ministry class. Today we had the blessing of Pastor Jerry coming down and teaching a session "Using the Internet effectively in Pastoral Ministry" a good class indeed!

Our Very Own Anna Holt

She led worship this morning at Chapel. It was such a blessing to hear her again. God is doing a good work in both Anna's out here (Anna Holt and Anna Folkerts). Let's not forget Anna Hebel in Okinawa!

New CCBCJAPAN brochures

Yuko did a great job of designing the new Bible College Brochure. Good information, a blessed work indeed.
