A Message from Kinshuko

Norma Hamilton emails the following from C-on Kinshuko, (Iwate, Japan) where the mission team has been since last Thursday:

It's early on Tuesday morning, but I'm wide awake reflecting on the past few days.

We have had great weather, although being inside these past several days, hardly noticed. We'll be sightseeing today around the area, so will be able to enjoy the weather here. God has been so great with his plans for this mission! I cannot even begin to put into words. But we'll be sharing our pictures and stories when we get back. Suffice it to say we always need remember to trust in Him and His plans for us. We don't always know what they are - usually don't :-) - but it works out in the end.

Janet (Brown) led the service here at camp on Sunday, and when I looked at this week's Hope Bible Study - the same! Went back to last week's - again, the same! Not a coincidence - just God's way of keeping us together with our Hope family while we're so far away. Janet's theme was "God's Masterpiece". She began with Eph 2:8-9 - it's God's gift - nothing we can earn - comes to us thru Christ's death on the cross. Ended with Phil 1:6 - our masterpiece is not done - God is still working on us - all our lives until we meet Him. Then I opened up last week's Study Guide - the verse to memorize - Eph 2:8-9 and this week's - Phil 1:6

What a wonderful Father in Heaven!
