OSAKA – KOREA – TOKYO
OSAKA, JAPAN: Today I will be flying to Osaka, Japan for a conference in Kobe. I will be joining many missionaries, pastors and fellow Christians from Japan, Korea, China and other nations. We will be worshiping, praying and joining together for reconciliation and unity between nations and the church. You can read more on the website HERE. Or watch a video from last years event HERE. Below is a map of where I will be during the conference.
KOREA: Immediately following the conference, I will be going with a team of 3 other missionaries to South Korea! A couple of months ago, God put it on my heart to start interceding for North and South Korea. Within a few weeks there were 3 others that joined me in this weekly intercession. Now we have a total of 6 people from several countries that are meeting together to pray. Recently God put it on our hearts to take this team to Korea on a bridge building missional trip. We have 2 Americans, 1 man from the U.K. and 1 Chinese Canadian. This whole team is composed of international missionaries that I live and work with in Japan. Each of us has a heart to see reconciliation in North and South Korea and also between Korea and the nations. We want to see revival come to North Korea! Our team will be traveling all over South Korea meeting with missionaries, pastors, and families to learn more about what God is doing in Korea. We will be doing daily worship and intercession for the land and people as well. And we will be visiting the N.K. and S.K. boarder to pray. Please partner with us in prayer during these next two weeks!
20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
25 “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. 26 I have made you[e] known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”
