TEAM, Chris and Megumi Risden

 Summary:

Serving the people of Japan with TEAM (The Evangelical Alliance Mission) in Central Nagano Prefecture. Ministering in three churches in the Matsumoto area, about 3 hours NW of Tokyo.  Our vision is to see these churches help give birth to other local churches.  Focusing on evangelism, Bible teaching, and church planting.

 

Prayer:

  • Chris teaches several English classes.  Please pray for his students – that the Holy Spirit would open their hearts to the good news of Christ.
  • Pray that the Lord would bring us into contact with people who are seeking Him and that we would be effective in pointing them to Christ.
  • Pray for wisdom and endurance in home-schooling and that our girls would come to love learning.
  • Please pray for the physical, emotional, and spiritual health of our family.

TEAM Japan Learning and Development Ministry Initiative (LDMI), Stephen and Kaytlin Brock

 Summary:

While we continue full-time language study and work with TEAM Japan leadership to determine where/what our assignment will be after language school, we are excited to have the opportunity to be Christ to the Japanese friends we have been making in our neighborhood.

 

Prayer:

  • Pray that the Holy Spirit will break down the Japanese peoples’ barriers to understanding the Gospel and trusting Jesus Christ.
  • Pray for our church family here, Kodaira Bible Christ Church, to grow closer to Jesus and represent him in their culture.
  • Pray for our new friends, whom we’ve largely made through Scarlett’s school, to see Jesus in us and be receptive to the truth of the Gospel.
  • Pray for Stephen, Kaytlin and TEAM Japan leadership to have wisdom while planning and preparing for future ministry opportunities.
