Undeserved Grace

...He is reminding me that this is not about me anyway. It's all about Jesus touching the hearts of these ladies. (P.S. Please pray as we will be ending this study in a few weeks.  My prayer is to continue on with another study...perhaps a Christian marriage/family/communication type book. If anyone knows a good discussion book in Japanese, please let me know!)

Grace #4: Ministry. By God's loving Grace, I'm recognizing a sin in my life that I did not think was a problem. I'm learning these days how much I LOVE to do things on my own, and how I feel that my plans are best, and that I don't want to discuss it with anyone else because they might make me do something I don't wanna do, or change my perfect plans! Ugh. Yuck. Please pray that I will remain teachable, and for my heart to remain open to correction.  And even though I'm "under construction", that Jesus would keep shining through the Johnston family. Pray for our friends to not focus so much on us, but that they would see Jesus. We will disappoint them at one point or another...but Jesus NEVER will. Pray for our plans for a Valentine ministry, as well as a bunch of relationship building times during the month of February.

Grace #5: Answered prayer!: Even though my faith was very tiny, and I was in a panic to try to find a childcare team for the Asian Access Spring Retreat, God showered His Grace upon me by providing us with a wonderful team. And not just any team...these are friends of ours from Community Baptist Church (CBC), our sending church in Southern California!  There are 10 people who have decided to jump into this adventure!  (7 from CBC and 3 from various places in the U.S.) Please pray that each volunteer would be able to raise the funds for airline tickets as well as in-country expenses. We are touched that they are willing to do this for our 31 children!!

Okay, your turn! Tell me about what kind of GRACE you are experiencing these days.
