What a great joy to return to Japan
after two years to see what God has been doing through
the Holy Spirit and the wonderful faithful labor of the
pastors and workers.
It is said that one picture is
worth 5,000 words. We will need 3 reports to share a
little of the wonderful ministry we have had.
We have been returning for
ministry, crusades and church planting since 1971 to
Japan. We believe that this mission has been the best of
all times we have ministered there.
In this Part One we are sharing
some of the Work of God in Sumoto, Awaji Isand with our
good friends, Jim and Darla Snipe.

missionaries in photo #1. In photo #2 left, here they
are with their 2 sons Shane and Jay in their mansion as
