Erich recently wrote about simple church, and I would like to share more about it since I feel like I’m finally getting it. I have been seeing so much outward fruit recently, and some people ask, “what did you do that made a difference? What’s the secret?Read More

Hi family and friends, First of all I miss you and I love you. Thank you for praying for us and Japan. We are praying for you, and we wish we get to be with you more often. God is doing some really amazing things in Kansai. Praise God!! Cody & Danielle Our dear friends Cody and Danielle, who are coming to Japan in a couple years as missionaries, visited us in Osaka for two weeks. We spent such great time eating delicious stuff (mostly good meat and good curry and good ramen. drools), traveling to several sweet tourism...Read More
photo cred: Fujita san Hi family and friends! As we said in the last post, we were to rest and we did just that. We played lots, ate lots, hung out lots, and just enjoyed God’s provision. Our Heavenly father is so good. Ministry Stuff When I asked what the biggest ministry will be, The Lord said, “who you are.” I said Amen! But I don’t really care to write much about who I am in Christ since I can be self-absorbing, (I love who I am in Jesus so much) …So I prefer writing about practical things we...Read More
But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31) Finishing the School Eight months sounded like forever, but here I am already, at the end of counseling internship in LA. All glory to God for protecting me, guilding me, and successfully finishing not only the counseling internship but the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Regent University. I am graduating in a few weeks. I have a Master’s degree in counseling! I’m very, very...Read More
Find out what’s been happening in our lives in just 5 minutes and 34 seconds. Also we realized that doing this video blog thing, while fast, leaves out a ton of what we’ve been up to, so we’ll try to post again soon! All glory to our...Read More
Greetings! Emi writing from LA, wanting to update on our journey. I’m going to keep this short, like a one minute read. Remember how I was talking about doing internship in LA? So that’s happening. I moved to LA (well, now more like OC). LA has been real good to me. My family is here, my old friends are here, I can drive and go anywhere I want to, and I can have awesome food anytime. My family’s been so gracious to me that they’ve provided me a place to live, food to eat, a even car to drive. Such grace!...Read More
Greetings, family and friends! May Jesus be glorified always. Emi here. I’m writing to you with such renewed spirit and heart. The Lord restored so much joy in me during this month through my trip to the States. I. Regent University’s Residency Program in Virginia Beach Just like last year, I once again visited Regent University in VA for a residency program. This year we did group counseling. I was spiritually rejuvenated and received so much healing during the program. Every morning begins with gathering and worship, and the program ended with a spiritual retreat. There’s definitely something about...Read More
Hi family and friends, Midsummer greetings! Two Point Five Months in a Nutshell It’s been a while since we updated you on our lives in Japan. So many things happened in the past months, like Erich going back to Holland for a few weeks, Emi surviving and thriving as a single during his travel, attending two Japanese weddings, and my parents visited Osaka. God is and has been so good to us through these times. Praise Jesus for his unconditional love! B – I – G, Big Developments We have a news that brings change to our lives soon. (No,...Read More
Hello family and friends! Grace and peace to you from God our father. Emi here. We’ve been posting other topics on the blog so I’m sure you’re curious to know what Erich and I have been up to. Thankfully, we have been doing way better compared to the last update in February. I. YMCA and Regent I’m so proud to report that Erich has been doing fantastic in the language study. Though he’s humble about it, I have to tell you that he’s earned all ‘A’s and mastered kanji (Chinese characters) as good as Chinese/Taiwanese students–sometimes Asian students even...Read More
