God's Glory in Japan • October '21 Update
Hello from Yokohama, Japan!

It's with great joy we write to you. We arrived safely back home in Japan on September 15. We completed the mandatory 14-day quarantine in our home and are eager to return to life and ministry for God's Glory in Japan! Thank you for praying, encouraging and checking in with us along the way.
We spent 12-weeks Stateside and God was so kind to give us sweet time with family, friends and our precious supporters. It's hard to summarize all that took place in this short time. But know we are thankful and count it a privilege that you choose to have us part of your lives.

"Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous works among all peoples. "
- - Psalm 96:3
We're excited to be back in Japan to do that which He has called us to do - "declare His glory." To change things up a bit, we thought we'd show more of our journey through pictures below. 
Blessings in Christ,
Justin, Lindsay, Clark, Mollie and Bear
It was great to visit with family in our hometowns of Texas and New Jersey. We filled up on our favorite foods, but more important than that - time with those who have been with us since the beginning.
Nothing like visiting with friends - some who we haven't seen in years! Our hearts were so encouraged. We needed it.
The Lord was gracious in giving us opportunities - to share, preach, sip coffee with and rejoice in what God is doing in each other's lives. We're thankful for all our partners and hope to visit next time with those we missed!
Due to some sudden health needs (non-covid related) for Linds, we needed to extend our stay Stateside 2 weeks. She is doing well and we were all able to make the journey back to Japan. Our nice, empty plane was a perfect respite for the long-journey of a 2-week quarantine awaiting us. Praise the Lord, our church plant in Azamino, met for Zoom worship as Japan was still in State of Emergency during our quarantine. God is faithful!

Japan's State of Emergency officially ended and we are hopeful to resume our in-person/hybrid format for worship on 10/23. We appreciate your prayers for those we're sharing with each day!

Please pray especially for
our new neighbors - the M Family and the K Family. We've exchanged gifts since our return and gotten to know them a little more during quarantine from our yard. Please pray for more opportunities to share in our neighborhood!

Financial Update
We shared last time that our ministry budget is currently underfunded. We trust the Lord for His provision and grace in this area. He knows our need and so we seek Him for this. We also must remain faithful informing you, our Stateside network. We invite you to take part in what God is doing for His glory in Japan.

We are currently raising $847/month.

**An existing partner church voted recently to increase their giving level since our last update. Praise the Lord for this good news! We also received news of our friends/supporters who have increased their monthly amount. Thank you for praying and supporting!
Our three-fold challenge:

1) START a New Support Commitment: We recommend a monthly commitment in the amount of $25, $50 or $100 if the Lord leads you.
2) INCREASE Your Support Commitment: If possible, we encourage an increase in your current giving amounts - even if only at a modest level.
3) PRAY for this need: Can we invite you to pray for this financial need? How cool would it be for each of you receiving this email (that's over 700 recipients by the way) to pray specifically for this need and to see this need met!?
