Tomoka Christian Church

We were blown away by the outpouring of love and interest in our mission work in Japan while we shared at Tomoka Christian Church in Ormond Beach. As one of the largest Christian churches in Florida, Tomoka Christian is known for being a very strong supporter of missions. It was an honor to be invited to speak. We are fast approaching 500 active prayer warriors in this mission to Japan! We even ran into Craig and Natalie Leslie from Lake Eustis Christian who were vacationing. Shouts to Pat Bolles who made our stay an absolute blessing, Ralph Gossman, Doug in the Holy Ground cafe, Ed Townsend, James, Yolanda, M.J., Ed and Barbara, Don and Joyce, Erika, Sam and Karen Kohler (missionaries in Japan for nearly 30 years!), Barbara Shoner and 2 dozen other folks who visited with us. Tomoka is already planning a short-term mission trip to Japan in May of 2010. We continue to pray for the harvest and the workers.

We were prayed for during each of the five weekend services.
