BACK IN JAPAN
UPDATE: After a 3 week visit to Norway, a 30 hour trip involving 3 planes & 4 airports, and some unpacking… I have finally settled back into Japan! God has blessed me with a quant little apartment and 2 great housemates. For the past 2 days I have been reconnecting with old friends and fellow missionaries in Tokyo and it has been wonderfully encouraging. My current mission includes: buying some groceries, finding a bike, and getting a phone.
VISION: One of the things that has been on my heart supremely is a growing desire for unity in the church in Japan. Perhaps God will let me be a part of pursuing greater unity in His church. It has been so wonderful to reconnect with fellow missionaries and pastors in Japan. I am excited by the stories of what God is doing and am hopeful for things to come. I will continue working with the local church plant I have been a part of in Tokyo. And I am also excited about the things happening at the YWAM base. I will be taking Japanese lessons as well as going through what is called a Life Track. During this next year I will be stretched in the areas of personal study, teaching, and discipleship and it is going to be great!
PRAYER: I would love prayer for the process of renewing my visa in Japan. Also please pray for unity in the church in Japan. Thank you!
CONTACT: I will be getting a Japanese phone but I also have a phone number that you can call from the states if you ever want to reach me: 253.235.3019. Also, I can be reached via Facebook and email. It would be great to hear from you! Much love, Devin
"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners... They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor. They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations."
