As always, summer was so busy but so full of great opportunities to share the gospel. Seinan Jo Gakuin Bible camp was an amazing event again this year. The 70 girls in attendance had a blast enjoying worship, Bible message times, craft, games, pool, bonfire and wonderful meals! We always love getting to connect to the students on a more personal level. Please keep praying as Hana is inviting good friends she made at camp to come to BFF. Several girls expressed their desire to worship with us!
The Texas team again worked so hard for us and helped us make a huge impact on lots and lots of people. Don't miss the newsletter video (link above) where there are some video highlights, and you'll hear about our favorite parts of the week. We were most excited to see the young people in BFF serving in every way they could find, with all their hearts! Watching the church in action like this is such a joy!
We also talk about the fall in our newsletter video (link at the top, above "Summer Ministry"). We have lots of concerts coming up this fall including a seminar where we are being asked to come and talk about how we include kids in worship. We will also be doing a Bible study via "Zoom" with our new friends at Crossroads Nishinomiya church! Don't forget to also pray for the Fall semester of After School Klub which begins this week. Rocky is also working on an album in the studio for our dear friend Kaori.
Coming this fall...
The kids and mom have begun the 2019-2020 school year at Ayatsuka Academy. Hana will be busy preparing to enter the private Christian high school she wants to attend starting next spring. She'll be taking an English proficiency exam and working on her Japanese, at the same time she is in several more courses online for her sophomore year of homeschool! Kai just started his 5th grade year which will be taking us through Exploration to the 1850s in History, memorizing and studying through the book of James, studying Botany and Zoology in science, and fractions in math! Add to that spelling, reading, grammar and writing and he's going to be busy this year! Pray that the Lord continues to teach and grow both of our kiddos spiritually and in wisdom!
Other Prayer Requests...
Praise the Lord we are not losing any of our After School Klub kids with the new semester. Pray for this Fall semester as we keep ministering to these kids and their families.
Pray for BFF and connections made through the summer.
Pray for new believers who are working up the courage to step out in obedience and be baptized!
Pray for Rocky and Kaori's CD project, for blessing and anointing over each song and each step of production.
Pray for the new Bible study with Crossroads through Zoom, that the Lord would use that to draw many into a deeper relationship with their Savior.
Pray for our Tuesday night Bible study, BFF Ladies Bible study, and other opportunities to teach and disciple those in our fellowship. That seekers would come to faith, that believers would go deeper with Jesus, that everyone would feel a stronger call to be the church and share the Gospel with those around them every day!
