I was asked to come and teach the Sunday morning service in Tokorozawa. I was blessed to be given the opportunity. It went really well because nobody tried to stone me afterwards! (just kidding) It did go really well though. Praise Jesus! it was a blessed time. Travis translated for me, and Mike did worship. Travis is an amazing person, he didn't even need my notes! He just glanced over them and then just went at it in the message. over all it was great and I was blessed to share.
Hey everyone! so I'm here in Tokyo and upon arriving off the limo-bus from the airport I was greeted by Rusty!!!!! i got to hangout with them and go out to dinner with them. It was refreshing to see my friends again. Rusty is as lively as ever and Amber is just glowing!

What an awesome atmosphere there is here, such a passion for God's word. I pray that our lifestyle would be an encouragement to everyone out there. you don't need to be in Bible College to study God's word (it sure helps), take some time after you read this to sit down and read the book of God's love.
2 Timothy 2:15 (King James Version)
"Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
On someday's we get the blessing to change the scenery up a little. On Monday we got to go on base and study at the big library, it really is a blessing to get some elbow room and study in an A/C building. We got alot of studying done and had some time to goof off too. Praise Jesus!
One of the blessings that I get here in Okinawa Japan is to teach the Children on base for the Sunday morning service. This day we had a teaching on Jonah and the Whale and after we did our project we got a blessing, we watched "Jonah" the Veggie Tales movie. It was alot of fun and the kids were blessed. Praise Jesus for their desire to hear God's word. Their hunger for God's word always surprises even me.

Ok so here is that it is. Tako-Yaki is Octopus in a sort of pancake batter that is fried into a small ball. they are soft, juicy, and oh so very Good! this was our second night doing this and it was my second time having it! it was just as good the second time as it was the first!!!!
Jonah 2:7-9 (King James Version)
7When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.
8They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.
9But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that Which I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.

The other day we got to go to the beach and just relax and get some time to just sit and talk with one another and watch Eder score goals on the students at beach soccer :D. It was a really blessed and gorgeous day! thank you Lord for all the blessings that you give us even beautiful days to enjoy and some loving friends to enjoy it with.
Here is something cool that really encouraged me in my devotions the other day.
2Cr 3:18 "But we all, with open [unveiled] face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, [even] as by the Spirit of the Lord."
"We all with unveiled face": Paul here gives an invitation to every Christian. He will speak of an intimacy of relationship and a transforming power that is not the property of just a few privileged Christians. It can belong to everyone, everyone who has an unveiled face.
"Are being transformed": As we behold the glory of God, we will be transformed. God will change our lives, and change us from the inside-out. Though the old covenant had its glory, it could never transform lives through the law. God uses the new covenant to make us transformed people, not just “nice” people.
Jesus I love you, thank You for what You have done in my life and how You have transformed me, Lord I could never claim such a feat, It is so good to know that i'm not in this alone, it's so good to be reminded that this is a relationship i get to have with You and that just like my Father here on this earth is here for me, so will You.
Please continue to transform my life, to transform my very character to be more like you as I grow deeper in the knowledge and love of you.
For Your Kingdom

This year Cinco de Mayo was fun but it also reminded me of something. It reminded me of the current state of Mexico. I thought it would be good to be reminded that we need to be praying for all those who are lost (if we aren't already). I pray that everyone is blessed and remembers to pray and stand in the gap for lost souls that are going to spend an eternity without Jesus in one of Torture and Torment.
14How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"
