Legacy Christian Church

In spite of having a missions budget that is maxed out, Richard Geringswald and the missions committee at Legacy Christian Church in Lakeland, FL welcomed us to share our calling and passion for Japan. Their congregation is unique in that it went through a church split some 40 years ago, but recently came back together and are stronger than ever in their faith and walk with Christ. 22 prayer warriors have enlisted with us to pray for Japan! Shouts to Cassandra and the ladies who put together an awesome lunch, Marvin and Faye pictured above (who know Bob Higgins at First Christian Kissimmee), 95 year old Gussie who is likely the most active woman I've met, Morty who knows the Turners in Japan, and everyone who visited with us Sunday afternoon. Thanks for your generosity in helping us purchase airfare to get to the field! Legacy also donated 30 Japanese flags to our ministry to share with our supporting churches which will be given out at our ordination Feb 4th in Kissimmee.
