Professional Transporter.

CC Tokorozawa blessed Logan and Aki with a rental car in driving them to their hotel. Driving them was our favorite missionary Michal Snider. Snider looked like a professional. Everyone was laughing as Snider looked like he was posing for a car commercial.

Off for the Honeymoon.

The time has ended at the Jeffrey wedding. It was a wonderful time of celebration but now it is time for them to head off for a great honeymoon.

Beautiful Bride & Groom.

Look at this beautiful couple. I went to the bathroom and was able to catch the couple making their exit of the building and prepare to take pictures. They look very happy.

Wedding Bells.

Today is Logan and Aki's wedding here in Fuchu. It is a blessing in being able to witness the commitment these two people are making towards each other. Please keep these two newly weds in prayer as their relationship continues to grow for each other and also for Jesus Christ.

Pastor John Snodderly.

Pastor Rick has teamed up with various Pastors and groups from America to do a major missions trip in Japan. One of the Pastors is John Snodderly from the Bay area in California. Today pastor John got to teach Sunday morning service with pastor Santou.

Group stretching.

Before softball began Tatsuhiko led the group in a group stretching exercises. This is normal in Japan. If you are lucky, you can catch a glimpse of workers stretching together early in the morning.

Softball get together.

Some Calvaries across the Tokyo region were able to come together and play softball. The fellowship was great as people played while others watched and spent time together laughing and cheering for those playing.

Sending off to Sendai.

It's time for Julianne and Mustafa to head to Sendai. Please pray for them as they will minister with Chuck and Yumi Robb for the next couple of days. It was great to have met them.

Ramen with Mustafa.

Mustafa and his mother, Julianne wanted to go out to eat for dinner. They have been trying as much Japanese food as possible and wanted to try Ramen. Mustafa tried ramen but was a bigger fan of Udon noodles. Can't blame him, udon is good John Wayne.

Back in Fuchu.

My flight went well and it is great to be back in Fuchu. The weather has been wonderful as the summer has gradually building up. Please keep CCBC:Tokyo in your prayers this summer as mission teams will be coming throughout the summer. It will be great to meet new faces as they come to outreach to the Mainland Japanese.

Coming at an end.

These two weeks have gone by so fast. Already my visit at California is coming at an end. Pastor Jerry taught out of Luke 9:46-48. How can we achieve greatness in the kingdom of God?

"For he who is least among you all will be great". (Lk.9:48).

Calvary Chapel Mid-Valley.

I was able to go speak to the youth at Calvary Chapel Mid-Valley located near North Hollywood. It was a fun time to see these kids that I have not seen in over a year. It was a great time in being able to share to them the importance in helping our fellow Christian family in need out of 1 Timothy 6:1-2

Late night desserts.

Summer time is fun and has its special moments. During the summer ice cream sells at a good price. This shake (right) cost no more that $2.00 (¥170). Both my Dad and Pastor Jerry had a shake every night during the conference. Whoah!

Last Session: Chuck Smith

It was great to have Pastor Chuck Smith teach the last session on 2 Corinthians chapters 12&13.
Pastor Chuck opened the conference with the first teaching now he is finishing with the last. Pastor Chuck is going strong for Jesus as he is still currently battling cancer. Please continue to lift him up in prayer.

Hanging with the Amargos

It was great to see Ina and Izaak Amargo. The Amargo family visited and stayed in Okinawa three years ago. Being in California it worked out in being able to meet them near the Bible College. Izaak (Center) is graduating high school today. Wonderful!

It was great to hear from Pastors Bob Coy, Greg Laurie & Brian Broderson answer questions concerning certain topics. Also the session was kept going as Pastor Ricky Ryan MC'd, he's a great guy to hang out with.

Father Daughter.

My sister Hannah has finished her second semester and is currently working at the conference center at Murrietta Bible College. This was a great pose I saw as my Dad and Hannah were talking together. I couldn't help to resist in taking a picture.

Pastor's Outdoor luncheon.

The Pastor's were blessed by the conference center to have an outdoor lunch. It was really good as they served beef, beans and delicious desserts. Here are the Pastors that were sent out of Calvary Chapel Livingwater.

Pastors Perspective Live.

It was cool to see Pastor's Perspective being aired on radio live at the Coffee shop at the Bible College. Pastor Chuck was answering people's Bible questions. Pastors Perspective is a radio program that answers People's Bible questions.

Incredible sight.

My Grandma's surgery for her cancer went well and now she is back home. Thank you all for those who kept her lifted in prayer. It was an incredible sight to see this morning as my Grampa cooked my Grandma breakfast. My Grampa hasn't cooked for my Grandma for a long time. Incredible sight.
