The call to 日本 (Japan)

The call to 日本 (Japan)

If you know Danielle or me even a little, you've probably heard us talk about Japan. Well, the season is quickly approaching! Our Seattle apartment is a testament to that! As of last week, we've officially started packing boxes to be shipped to our new home: Osaka, Japan. Why Japan? That answer has been brewing for a number of years, starting back in the early 2000s. Ever since I encountered the Holy Spirit I have always felt a call to Asia. The thought never felt foreign or forced, but instead, entirely natural.

Hey, friends! It has been quite the start to a New Year and Danielle and I have many things to share about. Most significantly, our two week trip to Japan where we visited and ministered together with our great friends, Erich & Emi. The trip deserves a post of its own and will get one soon, but if you want quick details you can read about it here on their blog. Additionally, I've been chatting with the Lord on a variety of topics, which I hope to write about soon. Some of those topics to look forward to: Responding to "Jesus healed them, not you" Putting on the armor Kingdom Authority Fruit out of season Though I really want to share stories about some of the amazing things we saw the Lord do in Japan... I've had something different on my mind lately. Residing in downtown Seattle, we've had front row seats to the unrest the city has been experiencing. For those of you...
