Off to Japan

Good morning all,

This morning we’re going to have to veer away from “God’s faithfulness in Japan” theme because we’re actually going to Japan this week!

We got a text in the middle of the day a week or so ago asking if we’d consider ‘helping’ with the Olympic games (not actually participating in the events as I’m sure you thought, but in organizing the volunteers who will be coming to spread the Gospel among both the athletes and the spectators).

We thought those days were behind us. We did two Olympic outreaches about 20 years ago, first for the Winter Olympics in Nagano in 1998 and then two years later for the Summer Games in Sydney. That’s when Tony started on blood pressure medicine.

But like throwing gas on a flame, we couldn’t help but be excited about the chance to share some of our old, but hopefully helpful experience.

So I need you to stop reading this and just pray that from the 12th of September, thru the 19th or so, we can;

Find a seat and get on the plane (we’re flying standby with Nicki’s stewardess discount).

Be able to touch base with as many people as possible regarding what needs to be done with this huge event.  With less than two years till the event, we’re already behind in the planning.

Please pray for our energy levels and for Japan who in the last week has experienced the worst typhoon in 25 years as well as a fairly major earthquake……again.

Japan needs the Lord, no doubt there. We love the land of most of our adult life and want them to find the Lord as well!

And as a bonus, while I’m there I hope I can gather up some more exciting stories to continue to tell you about the amazing history of Christ in Japan.

Till next time, “hoo roo” and “sayonara”. Depending on how things go in the next few days, I may or may not be able to post next week, but don’t give up on me!

Marsha
