Golden Light on Perth

Perth, Western Australia

When I first moved to Japan I told people Iíd live there for about 3 years. However I at the time I really had no idea how long it would be. We really wanted to move back to Perth in 2014, but God clearly told us no at that point. At the time we had no idea what God was going to do, but now we see it was all in his plan to keep us in Japan for another 5 years. And now, after 11 years in Japan, we are starting to see why he brought us back here at this particular time.

Over last 5 years that we were in Japan, God began to a work of reconciliation and salvation amongst Ritsukoís family beginning with one of her aunties. Now when we testify to Japanese Christians who we know here, they marvel at the things we say. They know how hard a soil Japan is, but we testify that God can change even the hardest of hearts.

Now Iím back in Perth and by the grace of God, Iíve found full time IT work. Ritsuko is working on her 4th book and has already drafted two chapters of it. After the new year we plan to share in some churches about our time in Japan and future mission opportunities. We plan to stay here and in Perth for at least 3 years. Mid next year Iím hoping to start some part time theological studies.
