Enfolding in Community

Thursday is the Wheelchairs of Hope annual meeting.  There are new official members who have joined since last year, some who are not Christians.  Please pray that this meeting will bring them closer to faith in Jesus.


Tomorrow morning, (Tuesday) a major Japanese newspaper (Asahi Shinbun) will be coming to the Wheelchair cleaning day.  Please pray for not just the finished article that will appear in the paper, but for the time we’ll be spending with the reporter explaining what we do and why.   


Last week I took a wheelchair to Narita Airport and passed it on to a Japanese believer flying to Bangkok.  (This is the 3rd chair he has taken.) While visiting he told a wonderful story. Last month, Mr. Ohara, a young Japanese “business backpacker” volunteered to fly a wheelchair to Bangkok. He delivered the chair to the missionary there, and later went with him to a Japanese church service there in Bangkok.  At the service a whole family was baptized, so the young man heard the gospel several times in their testimonies. He also went to the Japanese Christian businessman’s club meeting.  Please pray for his salvation.
