24 Japanese Students Arrive

Warren and Yukari have 24 Japanese students and young adults coming to Orlando starting Wed 8/6. The Lord has graciously provided wonderful host families for each Japanese participant. In addition the Lord has provided our target number of American students/young adults to participate with our Japanese students for the Daytona Beach retreat. They'll have around 50 participants coming to the retreat including both American and Japanese students/young adults.

Recruiting host families and American students for this ministry is one of the most challenging tasks, but the Lord always provides. And it is such a blessing to work with those the Lord leads to be involved. A big thank you to all of you who prayed and to all of you who are hosting or participating in any way.

Please be in prayer especially during the next five weeks of our August/September homestay program. Please pray for safety for all involved in this ministry. Please also pray for the salvation of the Japanese students. Finally, please pray many blessings upon each of the host families, American students/young adults helping the ministry, as well as all the staff and volunteers of Mission To Japan.
