October events

The sign outside the church - we can read one word - Warren.

Warren was asked to preach on 21st with the pastor interpreting. They did an excellent job between them even though the pastor said he felt like he was an interrupter rather than an interpreter.

Warren spoke from Isaiah 53 where the Bible describes what was prophesied about the Father's purpose in sending Jesus, and what His life and death accomplished for us weak sinful humans.
The Japanese people love visual aids and this one seemed to get a good Bible message across. Warren had two CD's, one in each hand. One hand represented Jesus and the other represented Warren. The label on the CDs were 'the perfect life of Jesus' and the 'life and works of Warren Myers'. He showed what Jesus did in taking all our sins on Himself and giving us His perfect righteousness, so that God now sees us in His righteousness.
Notice the first three rows are occupied by the children sitting at low tables. their Sunday School teachers give them work to do during church. They love to do writing.

On this past Saturday Jan was asked to speak at the Soai Kids Club which is held each Saturday from 9.30 - 11.30. English games were also featured on that day. Hama sensei interpreted for me as I showed pictures of Australian animals and talked about how wonderful God's creation is.

This was a race bewteen 4 teams to pick out alphabet letters and put them in order.

The children are very competitive and enjoy games.
Our next excitement will be the arrival of Ian and Pam Peters from Brisbane who are coming to visit and sightsee. We look forward to our first visitors.
