Oita day five 大分 #1

Right after breakfast our team has a group devotion time. This has been such a special part of our day and a real blessing to me.

You can see that we are all using our devices to read and meditate on the passage we felt led to use that day.  However, you can also see on the table there is still a printed Bible too.

Our passage today was from the psalms with a verse that said “how precious in the sight of God is the death of his faithful ones” this was very significant for us with the places we had planned to visit.

Another blessing of our team time is noticing and praying for the needs of each other.  We prayed for both Jose and Ellie this morning and were able to encourage them with truth from the same passage we had just studied together.

Everyday we are seeing what I will call divine coincidences.  Today was no exception.  Just as we began our time, a young friend in the USA called me “unintentionally”. I chatted to let him know,  He did not know how his phone called me but as we were having a prayer time I offered to pray for him too.

He had recently visited Japan is curretly graduating high school and needs to know his next step.  Strong in his heart though is the deep need of the Japanese for the good news that is found in Jesus.  So his story fit right into our day.
