    CMA Returns to Japan

    We are excited to announce that CMA will be traveling to minister in Japan for the 6th consecutive summer! Our first missions trip to Japan in 2005 was done out of obedience, going where the Lord told us to go, Japan. During that first trip we began to see first hand the desperate need for Jesus Christ in Japan. We saw and heard of the heartache and complete hopelessness that leads to self inflicted pain and even death. We saw loneliness in beautiful faces, that were looking to be filled and sustained by stone statues and empty gods. Our hearts broke and the Lord began to place a burden in us for the Japanese to come to know their Lord and Savior, the One who loved them enough to die for them. With each year that passes, our passion grows stronger and stronger, longing for this nation to know the hope that lies within us. Longing for them to know Jesus.

    This July-August we have the opportunity once again to spread true hope, life, truth and joy in Japan! This year’s ministry team will be, Tiffany Case, Gwen Kennicutt and Christine Rempel. God has placed a smaller team together this year and we are excited to see what he has in store for us! We are now working on setting up and planning our events for this month long missions trip. Currently we will be ministering in the cities of Yokohama, Kagoshima, Fukuoka, and Kita-Kyushu (with other locations still pending). We will be holding workshops for children to adults, teaching dance and telling why we worship our wonderful Lord. We will hold concerts sharing God’s Word through dance and personal testimonies. We also have the opportunity to speak to young girls about purity and saving themselves completely for the one God has for them.

    Please be in prayer for our team as we are preparing, planning and coordinating between Japan and the US. Pray that He would lead us to the places He wants us and that we would be used mightily for Him this summer! We also need prayer for our finances as each of our team members work to raise the money needed for this trip. If you are interested in helping us financially you can talk with one of us, or email us.
