The Story of our Story (We'll be in Vancouver January 29-30)

Check us out! We're on page 29 of the Missions Fest Vancouver magazine and the same story is on page 2 of BC Christian News. We were pretty excited when we found out we would be featured in these magazines, and here's the quick story of how our story got there. We happened to run into Dwayne Buhler, the president of Vancouver Missions Fest, while we were attending Seattle Missions Fest. We got to talking, and when he found out that we made our connection with OMF at Vancouver Missions Fest in 2008, he asked us to write our story out and send it to him. We did, sent it in, and heard that they wanted a picture to go with our story because they were going to put us in their magazine! Shortly thereafter, BC Christian News also asked us to use our story. We hope it will stir up interest in our ministry and missions to Japan in general.

We're going to be in Vancouver January 29-30 at Missions Fest Vancouver. Here's our schedule, so come by and see us!

Saturday, January 29
  • 11:00-12:00 We will be at the Regent College booth. You can ask us about our experience at Regent, or Japan, or whatever else you want to talk about.
  • 2:00-4:00 We will be manning the OMF booth. We can "officially" talk to you about Japan at this time. And we'll try our best to answer your questions about other places OMF works, too.
  • 5:00 Join us for dinner! Meet at the coat check, and we can chat over dinner.
Sunday, January 30 (Keith only--Celia will be back in Seattle)

We've got some exciting things coming up in the next couple of months. Here's a preview:

Sunday, February 6
We will be at West Side Presbyterian Church in Seattle for the 8:15 and 11:00 services. In addition to sharing a little about our ministry, Celia will be providing special music.

Friday, February 18-Saturday, February 19
We are attending the 10th annual International RJC Conference in Bothell, WA. We have been part of the planning committee for this event--and it looks like it's going to be a great conference! Celia will be providing some music before the Friday evening plenary session, and both of us will be assisting with a workshop about using anime for evangelism. In addition, there will be seminars by some awesome people, including friends of ours!

    Love the cool background pic on your blog. Blessings as you share the needs of Japan and trust God will bring people your way who will pray and give faithfully. We have definitely learned some hard lessons during the "classroom" of deputation...but, God is faithful and WILL provide!!!
