Dear Family and Friends
Today, let’s ride together on trains in Japan.
“When Jesus saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd”. (Matt.9:36)  Jesus said to the woman at the well, “Give me a drink”(John 4:7)
Years ago, while on a commuter train in Japan (photo above), I realized that I might be the only Christian in that coach, since only 1 or 2 out of 100 are Christians.  Feeling Jesus’ love and compassion for them, I felt led to start conversations with people about their lives, just as Jesus did with the woman at the well (John 4:7), and to see if the Lord would lead me to share truths about His love and plans for them in this life and in the next. We are ALL privileged to be co-workers with Him daily.  (II Cor. 6:1)
My doctor told me that I should be glad about that hole in my face, through which I can get nutrients into my body and keep alive. He told me to take care of my mouth.

This spot on my arm,
Has a certain attraction,

For the pesky fly!

A WORK of the Lord in Japan.
Students at CFN-Japan not only HEAR and grow in God’s Word, but have opportunities to SHARE that Word with others by outreaches monthly in the local area, yearly within the nation, and every 2 years internationally. Five teams of students recently returned with wonderful testimonies of sharing God’s Word in 5 different localities within Japan this summer.
Years ago, I was also able to share the  Gospel with passengers on the “Bullet Train” in Japan passing Mt. Fuji, going 136 mph, which is 217 kilometers per hour, as seen dimly in the black box by my head in the photo above. When people say in Japanese (or in English), “How are you?”, I often answer, “I’m being blessed”. This often leads to sharing what “being blessed” really means, and how they too can receive the Ultimate Blessing, Jesus!
Standing together with you looking to the Lord,
Charles and Dianne Gyurko
