Recently a mixed group from America and Australia recently visited to experience the various MTW fields in Japan. Although we are in the States, using a translator, Pastor Aoki was able to share the vision of the Sakae Church Plant. This picture was taken during his presentation from the top of the Sakae bus station. Many of the visitors were moved by Pastor Aoki’s passion and vision for Nagoya and how he said one of the best ways missionaries love the Japanese is by providing fellowship and spiritual support to the various National Pastors and their families. He was very candid about how lonely, isolating and difficult Japanese Pastor’s lives are in Japan. We are so grateful for the Aoki Family and how important and supportive they are to our family. Please continue to pray for the Sakae Church Plant and our partnership with Pastor Aoki.
