We are happy to report that as of January 31, 2018 we have received sufficient gifts & future pledges to fully support our ministry through 2018.  If you have made a pledge, we count on your future gifts to sustain our budget.  Please let us know if you can no longer send support so we can resume a fund-raising campaign.

Any new gifts which were not previously pledged will either allow us to expand our Japanese lessons (currently planned for just 4 hours per week), or it can reduce what we give from our Navy retirement pay, which allows us to set aside for the future.

This summarizes our ministry budget:

Ministry monthly budget:       $3012/mo

Support from our church:       $300/mo

Our Navy retired pay:               $1525/mo

Individual pledges + gifts already received:   $1187/mo

(As of February 4, 2018).

We thank you for your generous support to this important work!

Will you partner with us in God’s work to reach the unreached in Japan?  There is a great spiritual void that urgently needs to be bridged.

Thank you for your support!
