The first post by Satomi since being commissioned as a missionary in June of this year. Please enjoy learning how she has taken on ministry in the church and the community around ARI. As always thank you for your ongoing support and love for our family.
After we started new chapter of our lives, I was curious something around our house. Because even we were away from home for about 2 month, I didn’t see weeds much around our house. One of our friend which lives next door she did weeding for us. She even asked other friends to help her. And not only that, she also planted some vegetables in my little garden! I was so glad about that. And I really felt love and importance of community through that. Caring one another, helping one another. I think independence also create isolation many times especially in Japan. I would like to share more love and care to people in here through our lives. ( Satomi )
Our Gospel choir MINNGOS participated in charity concert in Iwaki city which is in northeastern area. Many people were touched and changed their lives through praising God!!
At Sunday school When they raise their hand and speak, and ask questions, and remember the bible verse and share it, I will be glad. Because it mean they are listening what we are teaching 🙂
JOY RIDE!! That was first camp in our church, youth and young adult group got together.“We have many kind of scene in our lives good or bad. But let us not control our lives by what we feel or what our circumstances are. Let us focus our eyes on Jesus who gives us eternal Joy!!”
Everyone is important! That was first VBS in our church for 2days! First day we did program in church, second day after we had some program in church went to park to play. We learned God made all of us and saves us. That was precious time!!
Welcome! This was 7th year of Yukata worship! (Yukara is Japanese traditional summer dress) Every year many new people are coming for this time more than church members. “Not because of who I am, but because of what You’ve done. Not because of what I’ve done, but because of who you are”
