While we were gone

July 28 was a "summer mini-concert" for wheelchair cleaning volunteers and their friends. About 50 people attended. The musician was a talented Japanese koto player.  She and her husband work in a restricted access nation. Please pray for those who came to the concert and heard not just beautiful music but good news.


While Mary Esther was gone, a group of Tokyo volunteers traveled to Sendai to help a church group there who were cleaning wheelchairs at their city’s community hall.  The local elementary school PTA also participated. Please pray for the new contacts made.  After it was over, one volunteer, Minei-kun who is a university student spent several days with Mark.  He is studying physics.  Interestingly one of the pastors who participated has a PhD in physics and the two of course hit it off very well.  Please pray for Minei-kun’s salvation. (Most of the volunteers that went from Tokyo were not Christians. Around the lunch table, one of them referred to Minei-kun as an "80% Christian")
