Lately, birds who live by Shibukawa station flock together every evening for a short half an hour bird show! I don’t know whether they are actually meaning the show or they are rehearsing for a larger show elsewhere, they do it nevertheless. It’s fun. It’s bird ballet if you have a story in mind and watch it. You can plug in your earphones for some 60s opera music to make the experience even better. In fact, you know what we’ll get at least one of them good enough to join the Japanese national synchronized birdancing team by Tokyo 2020! 😁

Feeling a bit nostalgic today—as fall tour comes to an end today, and I look back on all that has happened, I’m simply amazed at how amazing God works.
Almost every single night, I have had the opportunity to see God’s hand move in the lives of moms and daughters, changing hearts, healing wounds, tearing down lies, and even bringing many souls into His kingdom.
I have also seen Him work in many ways in my own life that I did not expect, yet I am abundantly grateful for.
This tour has brought on challenges, as anything would, but more than that, it has also brought my heart so much joy. Connecting with the rest of the team who loves Jesus so passionately, which ignited in me an even deeper passion to know and love Jesus more, and watching God work so tangibly has given me a glimpse of how the body of Christ should look like and work. I am beyond grateful for this opportunity God has given me, and I cannot wait until the spring to see what else He has in store. We serve a good, good God, friends! He alone is worthy!
Happy Sunday, friends.
