I’ve flown to Japan quite a few times and yet this flight was the roughest I can remember. I endured a sinus headache and sleep depravity over the course of the flight and arrived in Tokyo exhausted. Yet, God was gracious to us and we all arrived safely and on time.
We are joined on this trip by
* Shane England and Ben Adkison from Resonate Church in Nashville, TN
* John Ryan and his son, Will from The Summit Church in St. Louis, MO
* Pat Aldridge from Redeemer Church in Chicago, IL
* Kevin Peck and Halim Suh from Austin Stone Church in Austin, TX
We arrived at our home away from home around 9pm. After putting down our bags we got Japanese takeout and ate dinner in a park near the house. I shared with the guys brief my story of how God called me to missions in Japan and a bit of what to expect over the trip. We spent sometime in prayer together and hit the hay.
Please pray that these guys will catch a vision for Japan and desire to send workers and resources over to support church planting in Japan.
