Well we made it to Missouri. We had intended to be in Missouri at the beginning of April but due to some car trouble we ended up staying in Meridian a bit longer than be anticipated. Despite the minor issues at hand we had a great time in Mississppi and we are excited to see where our new partnership with Logos Community Church goes. We still have a few things left to take care of in Meridian so we will be returning to Mississippi after our time here in Missouri.
We have been in Missouri for about two weeks now and we have been quite busy. Our first week here we were able to to visit Central Christian College of the Bible where I graduated. I had the opportunity to preach in chapel and share with the students about our time in Japan and to encourage them to suffer well is their future ministries. Megumi and I also had the opportunity to teach the East Asian Cultures class and talk about the myth of oriental-ism and the religions of Japan. If you would like to listen to my message from Philippians 1:12

This past Sunday we were able to reconnect with the International Community Church. I served at ICC while attending CCCB. Everyone was excited to see us and asked us many questions. This week we were given the opportunity to sit down with the pastor and share about our history in Japan and where we are headed in the future. I will be preaching and sharing about our ministry on May 13th so please pray for that.
