Boom! Did you hear that? Boom! Is that fireworks? Boom! No, its a huge drum.
Splash! It hit me like a jolt of electricity. I turned and saw the cup in her hand and realized this was my wake up call. Everything from the week had been building and culminated into a heated exchange that ended with me standing at the bottom the stairs drenched in water.
We are the Glossons, a family on mission for Jesus in the heart of Tokyo. Planting churches with a vision to see the gospel saturate the nation of Japan.
After a 3 month blitz of moving countries, finding and furnishing a home, giving birth to a baby and acquainting ourselves with life in a different culture; we we’re exhausted. So the prospect of getting away for a while to enjoy the abundant nature of Japan was much desired.
Karis Church just launched a new podcast this week and Drew was invited to be the first guest on the podcast. Listen to Drew share about Japan and why we feel called to take the gospel there.
Through much prayer and thoughtful consideration together with the Karis Church elders we have made the decision to depart for Tokyo this month on the 21st. Though we are not yet at 100% of our support raising goal we sense the spirit’s leading to go now. As we prepare to depart we do so with a sense of urgency knowing that we are about $1200 shy of what we need to be stable. We’ll continue to raise support from Japan but will ramp up our work harder to close that gap as our 5 over 4 campaign comes to a close next week.
2 weeks ago we announced 5 over 4 asking you to pray for us as we sought to raise $500 in recurring financial support each week over the course of 4 weeks to reach a total of $2000 in recurring support. Thank you for your prayers and encouragement thus far. Here’s an update on where we currently stand.
