ASK (After School Klub) is
a ministry started by Rocky and Marla Ayatsuka that reaches out to kids
ages preschool - elementary. This is an opportunity for the kids to hear
Bible stories, as well as learning English. We get to love on the kids,
and play with them. Some of their parents sit in on the class time, which
means they're hearing about the Lord too! We LOVE being a part of this time.
- Tomorrow we have a big day. We will have a kids workshop in the daytime,
and a performance at night. This is an amazing outreach opportunity. Please
pray that as we prepare, that we will be listening to the Holy Spirit, saying
and doing what HE wants us to do!
-Our bodies are very tired after this week, so please pray that we will
be refreshed physically, being ready to do what the Lord has called us to
do. We know He will give us strength.
-Pray that the people we will encounter in the next few days will see Jesus,
and that they will want to give their whole lives to Him.
"Last year I made a little
friend. My heart fell in love with her, and even though we couldn't really
speak to each other, we become good buddies. I didn't know if she'd remember
me a year later, but when she walked into ASK and saw me, she had a big
smile on her face. She wanted me to sit by her, hold her hand, and give
her piggyback rides. Her family attended church last Saturday, which I was
excited about because some people in her family don't know Jesus... ...yet!
I'm praying that Jesus will do a work in their hearts.
One phrase that Jesus has been speaking to me about Japan is 'They were
created for freedom'. That is my heart's desire for my people... freedom."
