Throughout the past year we have had the elders and their wives share their testimonies at NCC. This has been such an encouragement to hear how God has called these various brothers and sisters in Christ and how he has provided and sustained them. This past week we heard from one of the wives how God has continually worked, often in unexpected ways, and has always provided for their family. Most recently their youngest daughter was baptized and even her son, the same age as T, is interested in the Gospel! It was an encouraging time and we are thankful for our Japanese leadership to be willing to step out of their comfort zone and share with us.
