Recorded from LIVE! Webcast - July 29, 2007
July 12th - August 6th, 2007: 26 performances, 7 workshops, and 5 purity seminars
CMA’s company dancers have had the privilege of ministering in
Japan for the past two summers. Praise the Lord! He has once again given
us an opportunity to shed His light and truth in a spiritually dark country.
The ministry team will be our company dancers; Tiffany Case, Alyssa Weiss,
Erica Bergfalk, Naomi Porter, Gwen Kennicutt, and Hannah Krohn. We will be
traveling for four weeks, to different cities in Kyushu and around the Tokyo
area. We will be holding workshops and camps for children to adults, teaching
dance, and sharing about worshiping our wonderful Lord. There will be many
concerts where we will be sharing God’s Word through dance and personal testimonies.
We also have the opportunity once again to speak to young girls about purity
and saving their hearts for the one God has for them.
Please be in prayer for our team as we are preparing, planning and working
with our contacts in Japan. Pray that He would lead us to the places He wants
us and that we would be used mightily for Him in Japan! We also need prayer
for our finances as each of our team members work to raise the funds needed
to make this trip. Praise to the Lord our provider!

Why CMA in Japan?
Our desire is that ALL would come to know our Amazing Savior Jesus
Christ. We want to share about the Lord's forgiveness, hope and life! The
Lord has given us the tool of dance as a way to worship Him and to draw people
into His presence. During our performances we want to draw peoples eyes to
the Creator of the earth and tell of His Glory! Through our dramatic movements
and the messages in our songs, we pray that hearts would be stirred, desiring
to know more of Christ.
"My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord, and all flesh shall bless His holy name forever and ever." Psalm 145:21
God has given CMA's company dancers, a deep love for the people of Japan.
We want to share about the things the Lord has done in our lives and tell
of the peace, fulfillment and hope that He gives. We want to be God's hands
and feet, going and doing whatever He asks of us!
"You are the light of the world....Let your light so shine before men, that
they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew
We would also like to be an encouragement to Christians, and ministries in
Japan. Serving in any way we can, praying that God would give each one of
them strength, as they serve the Lord.
"By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also
ought to lay down our lives for the brethren." 1 John 3:16
Our Long-term vision is to have a CMA ministry based in Japan. A ministry
that will teach people first to know Christ, develop a personal relationship
with Him, to boldly share their faith with others, train them in the art
of ballet and dance, and teach them to use their talents and skills to magnify
the Lord... to worship Him whole-heartedly, in spirit and in truth... and
then teach others what they have learned.
"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present
your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable
service." Romans 12:1
Summer events in Japan:
(Full length 90min performances or shorter amount of time, such as one or two dances during a church service)
Worship Dance to Christian music (English and Japanese) sharing the gospel
of Christ. Songs with messages of why we worship the Lord and what He has
done for us.
Personal testimonies, (with translator) we will share the Word of God, what Christ has done in our lives and why we serve Him.
Worship Dance Workshops
- Teach children 5yr through adults how to worship the Lord through
their lives and dance with a student performance at the end.
- Teach/Inspire young girls to remain pure, physically and emotionally,
focusing this time of their lives on deepening their relationship with Christ.
It has been exciting over the last 2 years to hear how many of our young
students in Colorado have been inspired to use their dance for missions.
Our previous Japan trips began to show them that they could use the talent
God has given them to break language barriers and begin to spread the gospel.
We constantly want to inspire our students to live such a passionate life
for Christ that it would spill over onto all who come near.
