Sayonara 2016, Hello 2017

December Ministry

Our December was full of many parties and concert to celebrate the Christmas season.  Thank you all so much for the many ways you helped us make December special.  The party decoration supplies, crafts and games, and small gifts in boxes sent over were such a blessing to ALL of us.  Please keep praying that the message of Christ birth which was heard by many people for the first time, will resonate in their hearts.  Specifically for new visitors to BFF worship and parents and kids in ASK!  It is such a joy to share the true reason for Christmas.  We were also able to minister some in Kumamoto in December so check out the video for details.

The Start of 2017

This week we kick off the Winter Semester of ASK and are looking forward to a great 11 weeks of studying the fruit of the Holy Spirit.  We are excited about helping the kids understand how to let Holy Spirit can be our teacher and guide, and gives us the power to live as followers of Christ, which is what makes this faith so powerful and set apart from all other man made religions.

Also in 2017 we are launching a couple of new things.  Rocky and Caleb will be working on making Bible study video series so that will help many grow deeper in their faith and walk with Christ.  One of the hardest things about ministry here is discipleship.  Everyone is so busy and it is hard to have frequent and deep Bible studies.  We are hoping that during this season of ministry, teaching by video may help to solve this issue.  There are dreams of more music projects this year as well.  And we are currently planning the summer of ministry with a new team from Caleb and Jessica's church which will be coming to help with Summer School and Family Camp in 2017.  Pray as we begin to prepare with this team, most of whom haven't been to Japan before.  There will be a lot to plan and communicate.

And finally please pray for one of our BFF members, her father-in-law passed away this week.  Pray for the Nagayoshi family as they grieve the loss of their father/grandfather, that the presence of Jesus and His comfort will be very real to them, especially family members who do not know the Lord yet.

Thank you ALL who support us financially and in prayer so faithfully year after year.  There is a special shout out to all of you in the December newsletter video!  And here is an album of pictures from a few events!

With all our Love,
The Aroma Team
