Church Planter’s Institute

Last week we attended a 4 day Church Planters Institute conference near Mt. Fuji.  Mary Esther made some contacts for the wheelchair project, but her main reason to attend was her role as part of the JEMA (Japan Evangelical Missionary Association) Member-Care Committee which set up a Consultation Center where 12 professionals came and gave their time and expertise to the 380 missionaries and Japanese pastors attending the conference.  Their expertise ranged from webpage design and computer repair to psychiatry/counseling and Japanese language acquisition.  It was a wonderful four days.
