A few weeks ago Jo and I had the privilege of hosting a visiting team from Heart of the City, a church in Anchorage, Alaska. While it was a bit awkward to be on camera for days and days it was a wonderful opportunity to share about the need for the Gospel in Japan.
Hosting short term mission trips can be exhausting. We've had a couple come this year and while they've been drastically different from one another, I end up with the same exhaustion at the end of the experience. There is a lot to be said about short term missions in Japan and I think I'll be posting something about it soon. But suffice it to say, despite how exhausting it may be, this is a part of what we pray for.
