First Week in Tokyo

This and the following several posts will be emails from Japan that never made it to the blog.

___________

Hello everyone,

We are almost at the conclusion of our first full working week in Tokyo (a working being reading sessions all day Wednesday through Saturday, and then church, lunch, and party on Sunday). It is Sunday morning, so we will be having church here and then our first party this afternoon.

So far things have been going extremely well. We have almost a full slate of readers, the sessions have begun well, our accommodations are very nice, and the local Christians have been wonderful. We are truly not wanting for anything right now. I'm even typing this out on my laptop connected to the wireless internet that flows throughout our modern church building.

Some of you may have seen my previous blog post, but I will include the link below for everyone else. As always, you can keep tabs at soonercary.blogspot.com to catch things that I may not include in emails, and vice versa.

Also, here are photo albums:

Japan Part 2

Please continue to pray for our readers. The first week is all about breaking the ice and establishing good rapport on an individual level. Next week we will begin diving into the reading and conversation out of the book of Luke. Please pray that the stories touch hearts and that God can truly be seen in us. Being Asia, Christianity has not even played a nominal role in any part of the culture so even the basics of the stories and people of the faith are often totally unheard of among many. But, this is often a very good thing in that reading the stories of Christ is a completely fresh activity for many - no preconceptions.

We will spend Monday and Tuesday beginning our exploration of Tokyo itself. There will truly be no shortage of things to do here in this metropolis of 12 million!

Thank you for your continued support, it means everything. Also, for those of you who know David Freeze, please be praying for him as he and the team venture into the bush in Kenya.

God bless,

Cary
