What a strange title for a post! I know that’s what you’re thinking. But let me explain.
Sunday ministry was great! We started the day off with some preparations for the Kids Camp. Props, crafts, snacks, songs, and lessons were prepared.
Then at 9:30 we began the weekly prayer meeting. Some preparation and worship practice was going on so about 6 of us met for prayers. What an awesome experience. This is an international church where Tagalog, Sebu, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese and English. I felt like I was at the Day of Pentecost.
After some coffee and fellowship (sound familiar CCAK family?) we started worship service at 10:30. It was a wonderful worship time with songs sung in English, Japanese, and Brazillian Portuguese. An audio of the message will be available at www.sermonplayer.com/cckapolei/
So that was the great ministry portion of the day.
The misery came in the form of 4 on 4 volleyball. Ouch. Actually, there was no misery, but it is so hot and humid in Japan, we thought we were dying. But it was nice to play some ball with a few Japanese friends (some of whom are not Christians). Next weekend, many more are planning to come to the volleyball game, so please keep us in prayer as we seek to use volleyball to show and share the love of Jesus.
BTW- We are too out of shape, but we put up a good fight.
I’ll also have info on the children’s camp that the rest of the team was involved in.
PS- it might help to learn a little bit of Japanese, and I suggest this excellent website to assist you.
