Praise the wonderful name of the Lord!
Thank you very much for your intercessory prayers and precious offerings.
Louisiana is very very hot and so humid that when I leave the air conditioned work building my glasses fog up for a while. But in this heat the Japanese plant workers are working hard everyday. So I feel that I too have to work hard for them. The other day the family of a Japanese plant worker came to visit and we showed them around Louisiana. The daughter of that family wanted to study about slavery for her summer school project so we took them to a plantation. Through that we were able to see how hard the of lives the slaves lived. In that we were able to hear the hymns that they used to sing and see the lyrics of the songs. Through which it was clear that they had such a strong hope for heaven. The first thing that the slaves did when freed was build a church.
Also in August there was the deadline for the Kaze no Hibiki song book volume 6. We thought time wise it would be impossible for us to finish recordings but we were able to make it. While recording the mic stopped working and we faced many trials but we used another program to record. One of the songs my husband wrote is about leaping for joy so it was as if we had to learn to leap for joy while giving thanks to God in the situation we were given.
Lastly my daughter who was in Japan for summer vacation returned safely and started school. Thank you to all the churches that took care of her during her stay. She is set to go to Cambodia in September. I look to pray that she does God’s will.
