Summer our, Autumn in ...
Dear <<First Name>>,
We have returned to Kobe after a refreshing time of leave. There were enough friends, marshmallow barbecues, time for reading, quiet time and games of tennis. On Sundays up to 100 people (mostly missionary families) would gather for worship services - and for relaxing fellowship - in the local chapel at Takayama.
On our return to Kobe the other day, just like last year, I was again struck by the same sweet aroma. At first I thought someone in our neighbourhood was making candyfloss all the time! Later I discovered it came from the Katsura trees around our home. Now I also know that this is the first sign that summer is dwindling and autumn is approaching. … If you missed our previous video on Spring-Summer highlights, click here.
Last Saturday (Aug. 27), we enjoyed fellowship with a group of 15 visitors from Korea who supports our home congregation, RCJ Kita Kobe. The next day I started off preaching at two churches in Shikoku (Sakaide and Marugame). At the turn of the season, I would like to share with you (below) a few prayer requests and some of our planned activities for September.
We appreciate you support!
God’s Peace and Joy, in Christ Jesus.
