Just wanted to give a quick update about our recent happenings. We purchased our tickets to Tokyo yesterday, May 14th, and we will be leaving from Raleigh, N.C. on Monday, August 13th. We will arrive in Tokyo on August 15th and will stay with friends for a couple of days before we go to Shimonoseki. We were able to get our tickets for a great price thanks to a travel agency in California that helps missionaries find cheap tickets.
God has continued to provide for our needs. We are currently at 59% for our one-time outfit and passage fund, and we are at 48% out of $3200.00 needed for our monthly support. Our goals are to be at 50% for each fund by the end of May, so Praise the Lord we have already exceeded that for our one-time and only 2% away for our monthly support goal. We are well on our way to our goal of 75% support that we hope to have by the end of June. We have also added several prayer partners for the month of May but we are still looking for people who would be willing to pray for us and our ministry in Japan.
We have 2 speaking engagements set up for the rest of May and are praying for more opportunities in June and July. In the past few days we have submitted several documents needed to obtain our visa to live in Japan. Please pray that the information is correct and that the process continues to go smoothly.
If you have any questions or ideas please don't hesitate to contact us through email.
