March 2020 Prayer Letter 2020年3月プレイヤーレター

Greetings from Hokkaido, which has been declared to be in a state of emergency due to the Coronavirus.  Japan has also closed all public schools until the end of March, and urged people to refrain from going out as much as possible. As a result, we have had to postpone a few of our ministries, including a new moms fellowship group with a church we plan to partner with. The church we regularly attend has temporarily switched to live feed only worship services. As the Coronavirus has spread throughout the world, we pray for the Lord’s protection on us all.


In previous prayer letters (March and July 2019), we mentioned two divine encounters with people we are currently ministering with.  Last month, God led us to meet the director of a support center for people with mental disabilities.  The mission provides jobs for these people in their bike repair shop, takoyaki shop, and craft workshop.  Most important to this center is their one-on-one Bible studies and weekly worship services, as their main purpose is to share the gospel with those they are supporting.  Our vision to reach out to the weak and needy is very similar, so we are praying about how we may be able to partner with them in the future.  


It is amazing that God has provided through these three divine encounters so early on in our ministry, so we can work together in bringing the gospel to the weak and needy in our area.  We are so excited to see what God has in store for us next!  


“Be very careful, then, how you live- not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.”  Ephesians 5:15,16

Please pray for us!
Here are our prayer requests for March:
1. For wisdom and direction as we consider ministry opportunities with our new partners
2. For protection for our family and those within our ministry (particularly the residents of Hosanna Home) from COVID-19
3. That we may be able to use this opportunity to share the gospel with those we come in contact with
4. That through our home fellowship and prayer meetings, our former co-workers will be encouraged to grow in their faith and share the gospel with others. 

Prayers being answered!
We finished our foster parent training, and if we are accepted, will be able to receive a child sometime this Spring. Through this, we will be able to share God’s love to a precious little child, and also meet other foster parents and children, so it is a very important ministry to us.

Thank you so much for your support.  We are so blessed to have you ministering alongside us with your prayers and financial gifts.  God bless you!
