Today we received the wonderful news that the Rietech Company Board of Directors has indeed APPROVED the sale of their Nagoya property to CBI Japan! The contract signing date will be in early December. We’ll update when we have the exact date. In the meanwhile they are responsible for having a measurement of the land and we’ll be doing more inspections on the building. Contracts are being prepared and funds are being readied.
Our team is thankful and relieved. We’ll exhale completely after the contract is signed – but we’ll remember this day for a long time.
So where can you focus prayer?
1) of course for final signing of the contract without problems
2) for the US Dollar to rebound against the Japanese Yen – yesterday there was a slight uptick which was encouraging. Hopeful for increased strengthening. Even at 82 yen we’re down nearly $200,000 since May on currency exchange alone
3) for God to raise up His people to contribute towards renovations for the building. Please spread the word to family and friends who might be willing to help invest towards the repairs and renovations on the new CBI ministry campus that the Lord has provided! (Click above on “How to Give”)
THANK YOU for faithfully standing with us in prayer!!! God is amazing!!! It’s hard to believe that we’re coming to the end of a one year journey!
on behalf of the CBI Japan team,
 Then he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.  Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain. And he shall bring forward the top stone amid shouts of ‘Grace, grace to it!’”
 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying,  “The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also complete it. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent me to you.  For whoever has despised the day of small things shall rejoice…”
(Zechariah 4:6-10 ESV)
