Thankful that the Lord has gathered a team to help us church plant. It was the first week during worship we returned to standing and reciting the Lord’s Prayer and Catechism together. It’s amazing how standing and participating together changes the entire feel of worship. Afterwards we celebrated Christmas with a gift exchange and Turkey/Ham party. We continue to pray that God would use our team to build a church for his glory and to reach the many lost in Shirakabe, Nagoya, Japan and the world!
