Tokyo has been the most incredible experience I have ever had in my life. God is so good to bring me to this place to do his ministry. I feel blessed. I know that I am blessed because of what God has done for me here. Because of God's goodness, Oka became a believer on the Sunday following the Thursday that he didn't show up. I'm sorry that I haven't kept up with this blog, but I do have a journal that I write in constantly and I use that a lot more. Plus I do have the e-mails that I send out to people, but I feel that it is important for me to write in any form possible, so I will tell what happened.

Oka was supposed to show up on Thursday, but then he came Sunday night, and we met at McDonalds and with the other interns, we led him to the Lord. I don't specifically make it a habit to eat McDonalds, but I can say, it was the best McDonalds I ever had in my life. Because of what happened that night, a new life in Christ had started. Oka was supposed to meet me at Tachikawa station the other day to go to church, but he got delayed because someone had committed suicide on the tracks and the workers were cleaning up the body.

Please pray that God will do something incredible as he already is saving lots of people here in Japan. We need his help in this effort, it is only by the blood of Jesus that people in this giant city will ever know the truth about what was done for their souls.

So you had a bad day....

I must admit that after being out all day today doing ministry, I am so exhausted from it. I was at Hachioji Station in West Tokyo doing distrubution of order forms for a Christian DVD series in Japanese, going from mailbox to mailbox placing the forms for the people so they'd take it. Well after that, we did our "Five Minute English" lessons in the main square, with very limited success. Not to mention the fact that I had invited this man Oka to come to my Bible Study tonight, hoping that he would be here, and then he doesn't show? I mean, I understand that there are cultural differences here, but a little advance warning would have been good. I am upset about it, but God is always in control and never lets anything happen without a good reason, so I will wait and see how things work out.

I'm sorry I don't have more time to write in this blog, but it is incredibly late here in Japan and I have to be up super early tomorrow to start my day. Good night.
