Now well into the fourth week of Nov. On Monday, 25th Nov, we had a retreat – well kind of, because it was actually just a day trip – with almost all the members of the Network, from the core members, on-site staff, collaborating staff present. For some, this was their first oppotunity to meet in person. Since we’re usually spread out all over this big place called Iwate, we had a blessed time of sharing about our ministries, our thoughts, and to share about our prayer needs and pray together over them. We got together at a place in Shiwa called La France Spa. The good was good, but the spa was even better!
Our activity week has already started across our locations. We have volunteers in from Singapore, Hokkaido and elsewhere. It’s getting colder by the day. We now see ice on the roads linking the coast to the inland areas of Iwate, depending on the time of the day. Please continue to pray for the health and safety of our staff and the volunteers who come to serve.
It snowed yesterday for the first time this winter in the low lying areas in Iwate. Please remember this week’s ministry in your prayers. We have volunteers who have come from as far as Okayama this week. Preparations for Christmas have also begun.
