December 2013 in Japan for the Evans Family

John is struggling with tiredness, which impacts his language study – please pray for renewed focus on prioritising language in the New Year. Asher would value your prayers regarding his post-school plans and trying to organise the prerequisites for university courses. Praise God that Isabelle is enjoying school, and please continue to pray that she will focus on the required work. Lily is struggling still with tiredness and school demands; please pray for physical stamina for her. Ivy continues to enjoy kindy, although often fusses about going, and still struggles to communicate, but praise God that we have a six year old who loves to hand out flyers to her friends for church events! Jai and Bo are struggling with colds because of the changeable weather (we even experienced 10 mins of snowfall at CPI and it snowed in Tokyo today) and Bo’s sleep is irregular. Rose asks that in the busyness of life (we have had several friends and relatives staying over the last two weeks as well as Christmas events), that she will remember to go back to the gospel and rest! We are all hanging out for a few days break as we head to a mission retreat centre near Mt Fuji for Christmas.
Please pray too for the Lord’s hand to be on our decision-making as we begin to look for accommodation and investigate schooling options in the Chiba city centre; that everything will fall into place so we can move in March.
We really long for our Japanese friends to know the hope of the gospel. Please pray that our great God will be gracious to many in this community and that he will be working in the hearts of those in Chiba Chuo (city centre). We felt challenged at CPI (Church Planting Institute) to consider how our weaknesses belie a lack of total faith in Christ; that it is He who saves us and he who sustains us: our identity is in Him. What a blessed hope!  Wishing everyone a blessed Christmas and Happy New Year.
Grace & Peace,
The Evans Eight
