Mark James retired fairly recently but maintains a close network of contacts and friends in Japan, from his work with a major pharmaceuticals business active there.  Under normal circumstances he would be travelling regularly to Japan to maintain his contacts there, however two recent trips have had to be cancelled.  

Mark also serves as a member of the JCL Council (the trustees of JCL).  

Please pray that Mark will be well, following health challenges which have affected him in the last 1 - 2 years and that he will continue to be able to encourage his friends and contacts to get to know and love the living God and Lord of all.
