    “I want to make much of Your mercy - I want to make much of Your cross
    I give You my life - Take it and let it be used - To make much of You"
    - Steven Curtis Chapman

    CMA Returning to Japan
    We feel so honored to be called back to Japan!  Those words strike a cord of excitement and anticipation of all the Lord has planned for this summer! CMA first took a team to Japan in 2005 and the Lord has opened doors for us to go back every year! Each time we go, our desire for the Japanese people to know our loving Heavenly Father grows stronger and stronger. This July 5th - Aug 6th, Katrina White and Tiffany Case will be traveling to Japan to share the hope we have found in Jesus. The song lyrics above perfectly express our desire to have our lives be used to magnify the Lord, to tell of all He has done!

    Many people in Japan have never even had the opportunity to hear about what Jesus has done for them or how much He loves them. Out of the entire population, less than 1% of Japanese are Christians. Most cling to their Buddhist and Shinto traditions, crying out to gods who are powerless to hear, powerless to heal and powerless to save. When the triple disaster hit northern Japan last spring, over 20,000 people lost their lives. Those left behind lost everything. We saw this first hand last year as we joined in relief work up north. We helped people sift through the rubble that was once their home, served food to those living in shelters and saw the pain and desperation in their eyes. All of this deepened our desire to tell them about the love of our Father and all He wants to give them.
    ~ 65% Atheists
    ~ 0.5% of the entire population claim to be Christians
    ~ 86% of teens say there is no reason why they exist
    ~ Hopelessness leading to 600 suicides per week
    ~ 70% of college students have never met a Christian
    This summer we will be traveling to 4 cites, teaming up with churches and missionaries, to help spread the message of hope that only comes from knowing Jesus. We will be dancing, serving, teaching and speaking. Ministering in outreach events, churches, kindergartens, high schools, and Vacation Bible Schools.

    Please pray for us as we plan and prepare dances and testimonies, continue our study of Japanese and coordinate with churches in Japan. We also need a lot of prayer over our finances. The airline prices have almost doubled this year, leaving us needing to raise more money than we first expected. We need a total of $6,000 for us to be able to travel to Japan and for travel within the country.

    If you are interested in helping us financially please email us at or Donate Online. Stay tuned for more information about Japan 2012 and how you can be involved!

    Lyrics to Rocky and Marla’s song (Translated into English) that we are dancing to.
     – Please be praying over this dance, it is the theme God has put on our hearts for this summer's mission.

    Jesus is Alive Today

    Tears don’t even fall at the sight of the reality before me.
    I gasp and just stand and stare helplessly.
    The rubble is all around in piles.
    How can I even find the strength to want to go on?

    Jesus is alive today,
    in the midst of such despair.
    Even here where all is lost. 

    He loved us so much, He gave up his own life.
    His hands and feet, nailed to the cross, his blood flowing down
    and He hung there like that, and let it all happen to him.
    And the people thought, “Even the Son of God will die, and that’s the end?”

    Jesus is alive today,
    on the other side of death’s darkness
    Even here where it is all finished.

    Jesus is the resurrection, Jesus is life.
    Anyone who believes in Him will not die but have life.

    Jesus is alive today,
    in the midst of such despair.
    Even here where all is lost.

    Jesus is alive today,
    on the other side of death’s darkness
    Where it is all finished.
    Where all is lost.
    Here is where it all begins.
