June update

As winter begins in Brisbane, we are looking forward to seeing what our God will do through Soai Christ Church in Yokkaichi. Tim is enjoying his time there and will be the one to introduce Sally and Kisane to life in Japan and the work of the English school. They plan to leave on 26th June and will arrive in Yokkaichi on 27th. They are both awaiting their certificates of eligibility so that they can apply for their visas. The timing will be tight and we thank Peter Bakelaar for his hard work and diligence in making application for these certificates.

Jan has begun her part-timeob working at the church office as the administrator.
She has a lot of learning to be able to do this job well. Warren has been attending English conversation classes which are held in different part of the city here. These classes are offered for free and are helping the many internationals that are living in Brisbane to practice their English. This program is run by local churches. Warren is hoping and planning to offer such a class here in the western suburbs of Brisbane which is where we live.

Our church is planning to start meeting in a building as a new church in August of this year. We presently have about 20 adults meeting together each Sunday to pray and plan for this new church.

We miss our friends in Japan and are excited to know that some of them will be coming to visit us later this year.

I enjoyed looking after Philip, Lucy and Kathryn on the day their baby brother was born. Philip turns 7 this week.
