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.

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.
