Fukuoka, Japan

(foo-koo-OH-kah) – Pray for the starting of student exchange opportunities between two schools: a Christian Academy in Tennessee and Seinan Jo Gakuin, a Christian school in Kitakyushu Fukuoka for girls that was established by Southern Baptist missionaries 101 years ago. The program will begin this month. The prayer is that the program will eventually be instrumental in many Japanese students coming to call on Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Pray for the Lord’s protection over travel, lodging, and networking for the students who participate in the exchange. Pray for the families in Japan and in the U.S.A. who are supporting these efforts. Pray that their interests and availability will continue. Pray that the Lord will empower all the teachers and missionaries involved in this process. Pray for wisdom and strength to be used by God.
