Latest Prayer Points

March 11th is the fourth anniversary of the terrible tsunami in Japan. Please pray for those still mourning loved ones, those living in temporary accomodation, as well as those resettled to other parts of Japan and rebuilding their lives.

Please pray for Love Sonata, a big Christian outreach meeting on April 9th. Pray many would come and be blessed, and more would be added to the Church’s number that day and in the days following.
