Odate Family Update

This week, we are praying for the Odate family serving in Chiba, Japan. They have been in the process of gathering a team for church planting over the past couple of years and have finally been able to gather in person. Most of this team has been in the United States for the past year, so O-Chan has been leading these worship gatherings twice a month. Now, that most of the team is back in Japan they have been able to continue making plans for moving forward. Pray for their unity as a team and the growth of this church plant. Pray that God would bring people to them, and continually provide a space to meet, financial needs, and resources.

It has been seven months since the Odate’s moved to the city center of Chiba. They live in a convenient location and are close to other team members. Asami cares for their children and has recently made some new missionary friends. She enjoys time and conversation with these new friends and her old friends. In their newsletter, O-Chan also shared updates on their four children. Pray for their family that the Lord would bless and keep them.
