Sunday Morning

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.

Tokyo! Rusty and Amber!

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!
Thank you Lord for my friends here in Tokorozawa.

More to come later!

2 Tim 2:15

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."

Study Time!!!

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!


Childrens Minsitry at Futenma

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.

Thank you Jesus.

Tako-Yaki Night 2!!!!

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!!!!

it was alot of fun and a huge blessing because lots of friends and family came out to fellowship and spend time with one another and get fat!!! lol.

Praise Jesus for these times also because they are short lived and easily forgotten, but remember to praise Jesus in the trails that he builds you up and forms His heart in yours.

God bless!


Fall 2010 so far

There has been alot happening here, i wish i could capture it all in one take. I can't though.
I did want to put this up though because i have neglected this Blog for too long!!!!!

The students have all been a blessing this semester and all the Interns have been a huge blessing too. All of them have a passion and a desire for God's word and for God's work in their lives. I praise God every morning for the hearts of the students and I pray that i would continue to learn from their hearts and that my heart in that area would still grow. They for me have been a huge encouragement. Praise Jesus for faithful growing hearts this semester.

There is a new Chaplin at Futenma while Ken is in Afghanistan and he has been a blessing so far his name is Chaplin John Friedeberg. keep praying for the Chapel Ministries because we are going over the Christmas play and are going to begin to ask for people who are willing to volunteer to be in it or to help, and we need lots of help! lol.

I wish i could post pictures to show you more of what's going on but i had no batteries till now i bought some the other day and now i can start taking pictures again! praise Jesus! so i will be able to put up pictures, first thing you will see is the Tako-Yaki party we are having tonight!

Pray for me as God is beginning a new chapter in my life. God has taken me through alot here in Okinawa Japan, He has shown me alot of here too, He has shown me His love, my dependence on Him, His grace, His mercy, how to love like Him. i pray that i don't ever forget these things. God has been so good to me out here, far more than what I deserve. i know alot of it is because of the Beloved saints out there who are praying for me cause they know me too well to know that i'll prolly try to do it on my own. Thank you Lord for hearing my prayers and the prayers of the saints.

All you guys! My Beloved family in Christ. Thank you! thank you for your prayers.

Thank you So much

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.
