Jessica V. in Mexico

Jessica Valadez made it to Mexico! Please pray for her in this new season of ministry. She is serving the Lord at "La Casa de Descanso" (a ministry of CC Montebello). If you want to see more pictures and video of this neat ministry to abused women and children, you can visit God bless you Jessica! We all miss you.

Pray for the Liu Family

Heidi, Kailee and Amber left Okinawa last week to get their house ready in Washington. Please pray for them and Dr. Mark & Brandon, who remained in Okinawa to finish things up here. We have been so blessed by the Liu Family and pray for God's continued blessing upon them.

The Ferry's are at 5!

Congratulations to the Ferry Family. Little Jack arrived Tuesday. We are so blessed for them. They have 5 kids now! My heroes! :) May the Lord continue to bless you guys!

Please pray for Kristy

Please pray for Kristy. She is in the hospital for monitoring of her blood sugar. She has been there one week and may have to be there two more! Thank you to everyone who has come by to see her. (pictured is Kristy w/ Jackie Pyburn from our Feb. trip to VA)

After service, we had a picnic there at the beach park.
It was such a great day in the Lord. We all rejoiced at the goodness of God.
Look at Nicole's plates! Hungry Nicole?

The Children's Ministry came and ministered to everyone that morning as well.
Kudos to all the teachers, helpers, directors and kids! They did such a great job!
God has blessed us with an excellent Children's ministry.
Pray for our moms to be as well! We currently have 13 expectant moms!
Wowzers- don't drink the water at Calvary Okinawa. :)

This year, God opened the door for us to go outdoors. We met for Sunday service at this amphitheatre right on the beach. The church family came out and everyone was blessed as we worshipped and witnessed God's moving. Several people came forward to make a commitment for Jesus! We are so blessed by an awesome church and an awesome God!

Resurrection Sunday @ Araha Beach!

We were at Araha Beach and God blessed our services BIG TIME! Thank you Jesus! Every forecast said "rain", but God said, "No rain, I reign".

This is a picture of the worship team ministering- check out the beach right behind them!

This week is Holy Week or Passion Week.
Calvary Okinawa's worship team was invited to minister along with Koza Baptist Church and Camp Hansen chapel to the Marines stationed on Hansen. A group of us went up to support them plus they had a free buffet! :)
Several Okinawan mayors were in attendance as well as we got to share the love of Jesus through song. Koza did a great job in their drama presentation of the Lord's Supper.

Caleb Phipps has started school!
Caleb is attending Goya Baptist Kindergarten.
It is a Japanese school, check out the cool duds.
Glenn & Farah are so proud of him.
Glenn wants to get a matching outfit made for himself.

Noah & Colby Harter are taking tennis lessons together.
Check out those "sincere" smiles!
We are so thankful for the Harter Family- they are such a huge blessing to the church and our family. Look out Ed! You got some competition coming.
