Onward we go

Over the last two days David has been attending a joint gathering of pastors from the church group with which OMF works and OMF missionaries. Sometimes these occasions can be rather hard-going but this time it was great. There was lots of good sharing as well as times to pray, eat and relax (a little!) together. But the best part was when we got on to hearing about and then discussing in small groups the ideas people had as to how to do a new church plant somewhere in Hokkaido. Pastors expressed their opinions and some shared their dreams. The small group David was part of certainly had a number who were passionate about the task of reaching those in Hokkaido with the gospel. A momentum is beginning to build. There is a long way to go but we can see things beginning to stir and it is exciting to see how God might lead us in the days ahead. May the pastors be given boldness and unity to take the next steps forward.
