On Thursday my Grandmother is going into surgery for operation on a cancerous lump located on her lung. Because of the location on her lung she has developed a constant dry cough. Please pray that the surgery will be a success as Doctors take out the cancerous lump.

I am heading out to California for a little over 2 weeks. Since I have moved to the Mainland I have flown out of Narita a total of 6 times in the past 9 months. I will be attending the Calvary Pastor's Conference by helping run the CCBC:Japan booth in California. Please pray that the time will be a blessing for all the Pastors who will attend.

This is Ayuko who is my Dad's aunt. It was a blessing to have been able to visit her. Ayuko lives only 30 minutes away by train, it has been more than 10 years since I last saw her. Please pray for her salvation, before we heart was very strong and rigid but over the years she has become softer as the years progress.

While walking to morning devotions in the morning I noticed the sky darkened. Then I remembered that this morning was a solar eclipse. At first I could not see the eclipse until a Japanese man had a cheap filter to see. The picture does not do justice. It has been 170 years since Tokyo received its last full eclipse. Once in a life time experience.
Fukiko used to be a student at CCBC Okinawa. After she graduated she returned back to Osaka. This weekend she came up to Tokyo for a business trip and was able to visit us here at Fuchu on Sunday. It was good to catch up with her. Fukiko was able to attend a semester in Jerusalem. What an experience.

I made it back from Sapporo in time to say goodbye to those who have not left the school. It was a great to have Anna Hebel come as an intern, she is now in the air on her way back to Germany. While Tamiko and Rie are headed back to Okinawa together. The building sure got quiet as the size went from 15 to 5.

Pastor Steve doesn't have a Sunday morning service yet. But on Sunday nights he has a Bible study. As the picture shows God is bringing people to the study to be fed His Word. Please continue to pray for Steve and family and also for those who attend Calvary Sapporo.

On Sunday Pastor Steve was invited to teach at Sapporo Fukuinkan Kyokai. What is special about Steve's wife is that she is a professional opera singer. She has literally traveled the world singing opera. And she has also been taught by many well known opera teachers and singers in Europe.
I am blessed in being able to go up north to visit our family in Christ here in Sapporo, Hokkaido. Sapporo is the largest city on the Hokkaido island of Japan. Here is the very famous Bell tower in Sapporo. It was established during the 1800's.

This semester has flown by way too quickly. It seems only that two weeks has happened when in fact two months has happened. Please pray for Yuko, Aya and Chala. Though they have graduated God still has big plans for them. Incredible.

After the Worship Concert the Students had a party. The party had a two-fold purpose. It was a national holiday an also our student Rie's 23rd birthday. The students got their grub on! As you can see we made Takoyaki, the perfect party food.
In the past, there has been an annual worship conference held in Okinawa. Since majority of the Bible College students are here in Tokyo God had opened the door to hold a concert with CC West Tokyo. It was a great time. Almost every Calvary in the Tokyo region came out to attend to play worship and sing praises together. It was a wonderful time of worship.
