Dan and Mihoko Bolinger – Iruma, Japan

  • Praise the Lord Rachel is out of the procedure and she is doing fine. She’ll be back to school in two days.
  • This Tuesday to Friday is the pastors retreat. About 50 guys have signed up to my knowledge. Praise the Lord.
  • On 11/12 I am giving a speech at an event in Tokyo to raise awareness for organ donation. Pray all goes well.
  • 11/6 is a joined service at a local park with about 3 other Calvarys.  Pray for the fellowship and fun to be blessed.

Charles Jjagwe- Midigo, Uganda

  • Pray that the Lord will give courage to the new converts to stand strong amidst the persecution

Tim & Priscilla Ives- Chihuahua, Mexico


  • We are thankful that we were able to go back to the States for a couple weeks so that Priscilla could see some doctors and figure out what has been going on with her health.

  • For language comprehension (especially for Josiah and I).
  • For wisdom on how to best get plugged into our community.  We are planning on starting the kids in sports and activities soon.  We hope that these and other things can be fun things for the kids that help make Chihuahua home while also allowing us to build relationships with non-Christians in our community.
  • For clarity of vision and timing as to the long-term plans that the Lord has for us to plant a church on the north side of Chihuahua and minister at the university.
