While Jim and Kayo's aspiration in coming to Japan was to plant a church near Kobe and also to teach English to support themselves, they have concluded that the best way they will be able to make disciples at present is not by trying to establish a conventional church but simply by living among those God had given them and focusing on winning and discipling just a few for him.  

Their present sphere of influence includes Kayo’s family, their children, a friend of their daughter and a profoundly deaf lady in her 80s who evidently benefits from Christian fellowship with them.  

Do please pray for the Lord to lead and guide them, as well as using their witness to him.
