New Classrooms

Here are some pictures of the new classrooms. There are some challenges,but for the most part, everyone has their own room. We are not suprised at God's blessing, just amazed at His faithfulness.

Although we don't have a picture yet, we do have a Japanese Sunday School Class and don't want to forget to mention them.

This is half of the Nursary. The other half is for those babies that don't walk yet. 2 & 3 year olds.
4 & 5 year olds.
Kindergarden & 1st Grade. 2nd & 3rd grade.
Planet 45.
Tsunami (Jr. High)
TC-1 (High School)

Adult service.

Dedication Sunday Luncheon Fellowship

After our first Sunday in the new building, we had a Dedication Luncheon to thank God for all the blessings he has bestowed upon us.

It was a wonderful time. Sandwiches, Chips, Soda, Friends and Family and Awesome Fellowship.

And A New Season Begins....

Things have been very busy here. We have moved from our old building which, as you can see, is no more. This picture was taken on December 8th in the morning and by the end of the day the old church was gone.
Here is a close-up of the sun rise. As the old building is fading away, the rising sun reminds us that a new day is coming. We look forward to the new season God has for us in the new church building.
The Japanese take a lot of time to plan and they do it well. Once the planning is over and the work begins, they don't waste any time. I believe this picture was taken on Sunday or Monday afternoon. There is nothing left of the old building, but a pile of crushed concrete.
We have been blessed beyond comprehension. Here is the building God has placed us in for the next season. It is currently a beauty school, but they will be closing their doors over the next two Japanese school years. The Japanese school year runs from March to March each year.
We get to use the entire third floor, half of the second floor and one other room on Wednesdays and Sundays. In April, we will be able to use the entire first floor as well.
