Well, we have been praying and looking for a suitable building.

As you know, God led us to relocate here in Ishikawa. We believe it is because He wants to begin a new work here.

We have looked at a few buildings, but this seems to have the best location (downtown) and the most flexibility (it is a large space).

However, we do not want this building unless God wants us to have it. There are some obstacles that He will have to overcome if we are to rent it.

Please pray with us:
  • that we will find favor with the owner -- that he would be willing to rent to foreigners (not everyone is)
  • that the A/C will be operational (building has not been used for several years!), or that the owner will be willing to fix it.
  • that the rent and fix-up fees will be reasonable.
  • mostly that if God wants us here that everything will go smooth, but if He does not want us here that it be very clear. We certainly do not want to do anything that is not being directed by God.
For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. --Hebrews 3:4

Here comes another typhoon!

Typhoon Nari has come... hopefully we will keep our electricity this time. The last one (July), we lost our power for 18 hours!

But, typhoons are just a part of living in Okinawa.

So today was surgery day for Debe's Mom, Hiroko.

Everything went well, so that's a blessing!

Please continue to pray for Hiroko as she is in some pain.

We are thankful to God for His protection and are waiting for her to come home soon.

These are the actual gallstones that were causing so much trouble.

Funny, they look so small...yet they can cause so much pain!
