As Ellie continues to support the work of church planting in Tokyo, she has been using her skills in music and translation to experiment with an online music ministry during quarantine. Please be in prayer for this ministry, that it would reach and encourage many as Ellie uses these songs to point people towards Christ.

Ellie has also asked us to pray for those who are struggling during this time, she writes: ‘Pray for exhausted families and lonely singles in our communities, churches, and missionary teams in Japan. Many people are feeling especially low lately, feeling the loss of health, family members, dreams, plans, relationships… feeling the weight of darkness. Pray we would comfort one another with the comfort we’ve received from God.’
