Almost exactly one year ago we were ending a 90-day period of prayer during which God amazingly provided $1.3 million which was used in March to purchase a wonderful new ministry center for CBI Japan in downtown Nagoya.
We would like to ask you to again join us for a critical period of prayer between today (May 31st) and July 31st.
Would you pray for us as much as the Lord brings us to your minds and hearts over the next 60 days?
The needs we’d ask for you to bring before the Father include:
1) prayer for the repairs and renovations that begin on our new ministry center on June 6th! It’s been a very complicated and difficult process and the prices have escalated because of a scarcity of construction materials due to the earthquake in Sendai. We need wisdom in what repairs and renovations to do with limited funding.
2) prayer for wisdom about the naming of the center. It’s a lot more complicated than you would think.
3) prayer for funding for earthquake reinforcement of the 1st and 2nd floors. We are praying to the Lord to provide the $130,000 needed for this critical reinforcement work to ensure safety against the Great Tokai Earthquake that is expected to hit our region within the next 30 years and be perhaps the most devastating earthquake Japan has ever experienced. Read more on our earthquake reinforcement needs by clicking HERE.
4) prayer for final approval by the Aichi Prefecture official for the religious non-profit use of our land/building. This should come around the end of July Lord willing.
5) prayer for the ministries that will occupy the new ministry center which will open in September. Future planned ministries include the Heart & Soul Cafe, a new All Nations Fellowship church plant, and various other outreaches and training.
Besides prayer and fasting would you please consider three other ways to help?
a) TWEET! You can follow my twitter account (ohfamily) and please re-tweet to your friends about our appeal for 60 days of prayer! Or you can post on facebook or any other social media. (Of course you can also print out this info and post it on your church or school bulletin board as well!)
c) ADVOCATE! Share with your church, Bible study, and friends about our prayer campaign and ministry. Our ministry site is cbijapan.org/jointheteam
THANK YOU FRIENDS! God is moving in Japan! We’re excited and honored to play a part with God and with you!
On behalf of the CBI Team,
