Sapporo, Japan

(suh-POHR-oh) – As the snow melts and temperatures warm, signs of new life are springing up everywhere! Schools have started a new school year, and new goals for the church year have been decided. The English club at Hokusei University has already met three times, and students are coming to try out the conversation times. Pray for these students to continue to make time in their schedules to come and interact with team members weekly. Pray for opportunities for team members to interact with their children’s kindergarten and elementary school parents. The beginning of a new school year offers parents time to get together and hear about ways that they are needed throughout the school year. Pray that the Father will open up opportunities for team members to make new friendships and have Japanese families into their homes. Pray that friendships from last year will continue and be open to gospel conversations.
