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.

The Lord is doing a Good Word in Bakersfield

The Church in Bakersfield is growing! Praise the Lord! The Lord is blessing Gil in the Rosedale area. These are some pictures of their fellowship evening with some of the body. I sure wish I could have been there, but look forward to joining this group of believers in the future. God bless you Gil. Super blessed for you. "Lord, bless this Work for You".

Okinawa through the Sky

Zach and I are on our way to Fukuoka. We rented the house and will begin to get it ready. Will you join us in prayer as we will be looking for house equipment: furniture, fridge, stove, washing machine, etc., a new step of faith indeed.
