Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. (Isaiah 43:18-19)
I hope that this letter finds you full of God’s joy and peace! I’ve been serving as a full-time Emmaus Campus Ministry college pastor since February of this year, and it has truly been the most amazing semester of Emmaus! So much breakthrough, salvations, and testimonies of the Lord’s goodness! Now, I’m so excited to share with you about a mission trip to Japan that I’ll be going on this summer.
After returning from an Intern Swap in California, I have the honor of being sent with 13 other amazing sons of New Philly to Japan from July 27-August 3. While there, we will visit local churches and also do a lot of evangelism out on the street. Last year, New Philly sent a team to Japan and built kingdom relationships with amazing pastors and believers. We’re excited to continue to deepen these relationships and minister together!
Though Japan has always been known as a closed off nation to the Gospel, where many missionaries have gone and seen little to no fruit, my New Philly missions team and I are expecting to see rivers of living water flow. God’s heart beats for the nations, for every tribe and tongue to know His love and His goodness, and that includes Japan. This is our promised land! My team and I are going to Japan as “sent ones” and we are honored and overjoyed to manifest the Father’s heart to everyone we encounter there! Nothing is more powerful than the love of God. His love breaks down every barrier and every fear!
I would like to ask that you prayerfully consider playing a vital part of this Kingdom work by partnering with me and sowing into the nations! There are two ways that you can do this.
First, I’d like to ask for your prayers. I’ll be sending out prayer updates before and after the trip, and then during the trip there will be updates from the field at facebook.com/newphilly. This site will give you details so you can pray specifically!
Secondly, I will be raising 1,000,000 KRW for Japan.
If you’d like to join me through prayer and/or finances, please use this web site and also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you and God bless you!
