What do you do?

It's always good to have encouragements. Yesterday a lady who lives a number of doors away from us passed our house while David was watering the plants outside. After comments on how the plants looked, we had a conversation about why we were here and what we were doing. It was a great opportunity to share about the new church. This afternoon we were out in a park and two 9 year old girls came across to chat - and to practise their English. We chatted away about the usual things and then one asked, 'Why have you come to Japan?' Knowing that many children don't know what 'church' is, we asked if they had ever seen a cross on a building. They knew about that. And we could say that we were here to tell people about Jesus. As we look towards starting informal worship services next month, we were wondering the other day whether news about that would spread by word of mouth. Great that we had these opportunities.
