Pray for Gordon and Lee Ann Hwang ministering to pastors and to children and youth in Japan.
Gordon and Lee Ann are serving in Yokohama, Japan. Gordon exercises gifts of service and hospitality. He hosts a weekly fellowship meeting in their home. Lee Ann works full-time as an English conversation teacher for junior and senior high students at Soshin Girls’ School. She also has opportunities to influence students in two clubs, through the foreign exchange programs, speaking in chapel and with their home-fellowship meetings. Gordon and Lee Ann continue to visit and encourage pastors ministering to survivors of the 2011 earthquake disaster in Tohoku (Northeast Japan)
They write: “Thank you for your prayers and financial support which enable us to be here! The Christmas season gives us numerous opportunities to share about Jesus! Please pray that we would be given the words and actions to demonstrate God’s grace. May you be blessed with opportunities to share your faith, too.”
Praise God for so many family members and friends who visited. We recently said good-bye to the 14th set of visitors this year. It’s a record! Praise God for the great memories and opportunities to share our life with others. Praise God for stamina to host so many people! Praise God for the encouragement and wonderful fellowship we enjoyed!
Please Pray for Us!
