Hello From Tokorozawa Japan and Hope Alive. We are so Excited about all the things God has been doing and we want to catch you up on the Exciting things happening here!
We launched the church on January 13th and in the less than two shorts months we have seen 14 people indicate that they want to begin a relationship with Jesus Christ.
We are beginning to follow up with discipleship classes with these people and We are excited to see how the church is growing in exciting ways. We have seen new people almost every week come to church. Many of them for the first time ever they get to hear about Jesus, receive a Bible, and hear about his love for them. However we are already running out of space.
One of the ways that God is working in our church is our Kids ministry. Our kids room has been filled to the max each week. He has brought our church a great group of Kids and we are so excited to get to share with them about Jesus and help them to grow in their relationship with God. But we are running out of space in this room.
So we began to pray that God would allow more space to open up this same building for more kids space. The very next week a room opened up right here on the fourth floor of our church building. We believe that God has provided this space for our Kids as well as for meeting space, discipleship classes, life groups, Bible studies and so much more.
Our church has come up with the Down payment and much of the rent for this room. We are already dreaming about ways we can use this space to provide more space for an after church discipleship class and ultimately to impact more people with the Gospel.
Thanks for your partnership and prayers up to this point. We are so thankful for how God is working because of your prayers, support and partnership. God is using you in many ways to impact Japan with the Gospel and we are thankful to get to be a part of this journey with you. Continue to pray with us that God would use Hope Alive in huge ways for his glory.
