This is one of a series of emails I sent while preparing and living overseas in Japan, from April 2008 to April 2009. They are mostly for my own benefit, but also for anyone who may care to read them. Enjoy 🙂
Dear Friends and Family,
A couple of weeks ago, I sent an email out to tell you about an opportunity to work for a year in Japan. Just last week, I received confirmation that, after prayer and consideration, I would be taking the position and was accepted for it. My ETD is March 24th, so I would appreciate your prayers on the preparation to be ready by that date. It’s only just a little overwhelming, but with God all things are possible. The way this has been set up, it seems to be nothing but God’s design, so my worries are lessened by that.
I have the mailing addresses of a lot of you, but for those more electronically-based, I’m sending out the letter by email which contains a lot more information and may answer many of your questions about this project. I have attached it to this email, along with a file giving information about Japan and specific things that can help you pray for the country. I appreciate any support you can give me in this venture. Also, in the month remaining, I would not mind trying to come and share personally at your church for one of the evening services (Wednesday/Sunday), so long as it’s local. 🙂
Thank you so much for your prayers and support. May God bless you and your families.
In Him, Sarah ><>
