Easter Baptism, Celebration Service, & Praise Report from Japan

Happy Easter.  Jesus is risen!!  Easter Sunday is probably the most important Christian event each year as we celebrate our Lord Jesus’ victory over death.  Now it’s even more exciting when we can witness that victory through the new lives birthing into the Kingdom.  So on Sunday, April 8, there are seven people declaring their faith through water baptism: Yi Chang (益昌), his wife Yu Ju (玉如), their son Wei Chieh (韋傑), their daughter Jo Yun (若韵), Yu Ju’s mother Chin-Lan (金蘭), Sharon (月霞), and Vern & Dee’s 2nd boy Joseph.  Six of them will be baptized in beautiful Kahala Beach Park and Joseph will be baptized at church in the evening.  So please come to the beach baptism at 11:30am and give your love and support to these “new-born babies” in the Kingdom!

Also, come to the 5pm service as well and listen to their powerful testimonies.  Invite your friends to come as well, and please let Pastor Mei Li know how many friends are coming so we would know how much food we should prepare.  If you are bringing a dish to share in the evening, please also let Pastor Mei Li know so she can coordinate.

In addition to the exciting celebration that we are having here in Hawaii, I want to let you know God is also doing wonderful thing in Japan as well.  Please read Brian & Yuka’s praise report below, and let us rejoice together on both sides of the Pacific!



——Praise report from our missionaries in Japan—–

Hi, everyone.

My sister just called me that my brother in-law’s grandmother accepted Jesus as a personal Savior!!!
She is 85yrs old.
My sister wrote her testimony last year and shared with in-law’s family.
Ever since she read it, she kept saying, I want to go to church and read bible.
My brother in law’s family lives in Ibaragi ( right by Tokyo).
Grandmother never traveled outside of Ibaragi, so he went to pick her up and brought her back to Sapporo.
Today, they went to church together and was baptized, too!
She said, I am 85yrs old and now I will live happy life!!!

Thank you for all your prayers for us and our family!
We are so excited that so many new friends will be baptized tomorrow, too.
We can’t be there, but we will be united in the Spirit.

Love, joy and peace

Yuka & Brian
