It's time for my biennial trip to Japan to serve the Japan Church Planting Institute National Conference! For more information on the trip, please see japancpi.com/
This year, God has provided a team for me to serve with. My team from Chicago is made up of:
Our trip to Japan is from November 8 through November 18. We will be serving alongside 50 other volunteers from states across the US, including Missouri, Florida, Virginia and others. Together we will help my friend John Mehn, Director of the JCPI Conference (and also from Rockford, IL) put on this biennial conference which serves Japanese missionaries and pastors. Our main ministries will be conference setup, administration, and teardown; providing a Vacation Bible School for children; and running the main sessions and workshops of the conference.
I am extremely thankful to God for making this all happen, but with a team comes more responsibilities and unfortunately, more costs. Typically, I try to finance myself so as not to be a burden on others, but with four people we need help. I have already decided to cover all of our airfare using the frequent flier miles I earned from work, and I have even sold the above motorcycle in Florida to raise money. But we still have a ways to go!
The total cost of our trip so far is $7,426.40. Of this we have raised $4,001.40, which is 53.9%. We are well on our way, but could use additional help.
