Church Plant Update:

With typical busy schedules and the onset of cold/flu season, at this time of year we are experiencing lower numbers in attendance.  However the fellowship and worship are just as full of energy and joy as always.  Ladies Bible Study also has several new ladies attending regularly and they are really seeking truth in God's Word!  Praise the Lord for how He is at work!!!

Busy busy fall...

At this time of year we are always swamped with events and activities.  For a few details, please see the video newsletter for this month.  Specifically, thank you for praying for the Gospel Alive concert outreach last month.  It was an incredible event, and there was an entire Gospel choir in attendance to perform, most of whom are not yet believers but are learning about God through the lyrics that they are singing.  The main guest, Saluki= gave a powerful performance and testimony of how meeting Jesus has changed their lives.  We trust that Jesus used all of that and more to water the seeds He has been planting and will bring a harvest in His time!

Christmas Concerts and events...

Over the next month we get the privilege of sharing often and in many different places about the wonderful birth of our Savior.  Please pray for chapel services at Christian schools, Christmas events at churches and private Christian kindergartens, and our own events with Bible Family Fellowship and the ministry.  As we share about the birth of Jesus and why He came, we pray more Japanese people will seek out the truth about their Creator and Savior!

The Ayatsuka Family

In our personal lives we have asked you recently to pray for decisions concerning the future for our kids.  It is at times challenging to balance homeschool, family life, ministry responsibilities and so forth.  Our kids are troopers, going along with us to everything we do and serving alongside us.  However, we have felt led to seek an opportunity for Hana to enter a Japanese Christian private High School.  Hana is really excited about the possibility as well.  Last month Hana passed the Level 3 Japanese proficiency exam with flying colors and she just completed taking the Level 2 exam this week.  We will get the results of that soon.  Hana also entered a city wide English speech contest and was chosen in the top ten of all contestants to present her speech before a panel of judges next month.  Then in January Hana will have to go through the entrance interview and evaluation for the Christian High School that we are hoping she can enter.  Please pray that the Lord would bless the process and guide us in His perfect will for Hana's future.  If she is accepted into the school it will dramatically change our lifestyle and we are asking the Lord to guide us also in making decisions about travel and ministry activities after the new school year begins next Spring.


We have a baptism coming up in December!!!  A dear young friend came to the point of placing his faith in Jesus Christ during a long talk with Rocky recently.  We will celebrate his declaration that Jesus is Lord of His life through baptism.  Pray for those who will attend the baptism, especially those who are still seeking and trying to decide about their own faith in Jesus.  We will hopefully have news of another baptism happening soon!

With all our Love,
