Dear Family and Friends,
“Then the 70 returned with joy, saying ‘Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your Name’. And He said to them,  ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you’”. (Luke 10: 17-18)
If we would truly recognize and accept the God-given authority that we have as believers over our enemy, Satan, we could face personal , national, and international “power struggles” (between good & evil, truth & error, etc.) with confidence in HIM, Who has already defeated the enemy, and Who allows us, as “co-workers with Him”, to apply that victory in His Name, and with His Blood, to individual situations.  Then the joy of “walking with Him in victory” will not just be a hope, but an experienced reality.
A real letter to God from a child:
“Dear God, 
I bet it is very hard for you to love all of every body in the whole world. There are only 4 people in our family, and I can never do it.”              Signed:  Nan

Let’s be like Jesus,
And wash the feet of others.
Descend to Greatness!

A WORK of the Lord in Japan.
Since the PURPOSE of CFN-J Bible School is to assist Local Church Pastors in the spiritual growth of the people in their congregations, in 1984, before CFNJ began, we invited many local pastors to a meeting to share our goals.  Out of that core group was birthed a group called “Pastors United for Prayer & Praise” (Godo Sambi Inori Bokushi-kai), which continues to this day.                               
This present group of 12 Hokkaido Pastors meets once a month for discussion, prayer, and fellowship at the Bible School or at a local church. The photo above, from the past, shows many of them in worship at a local church. The continued unity and trust between CFN-Japan and Pastors from all over Japan is vital to the sustained growth of believers, who are now better prepared to live and to share their life-giving faith with others, which brings down the enemy like lightning. Please PRAY FOR Local Pastors and for the Bible School.
Standing together with you looking to the Lord,
Charles and Dianne Gyurko
