Dear Family and Friends,
Well, it looks like it’s time for us to relate even deeper!
“Love…forgive…admonish…submit to…comfort…edify…exhort… be patient with...ONE ANOTHER”.  (Eph.4 & 5; Col.3; I Thes.4 & 5; Heb.3) “If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.” (Rom. 12:18)
Human relationships may feel like a “Rock Tumbler” with other imperfect people, but it is in this context that we all live.  With God-given faith, we can learn to handle misunderstandings, hurt feelings, anger, etc., by facing issues peacefully with truth, love, and forgiveness, following the example of Jesus.
As our “inner man” grows in His image, together we can reflect the perfect unity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in the Triune Godhead, fulfilling Jesus’ prayer to the Father “that they may be ONE as we are” (John 17:11)
 How come the phrase “It’s none of my business…” is always followed by the word “BUT”?
“Enjoying Haiku Insight-Out”

The disease of love,
Requires no physician,
Just an acceptor.

A WORK of the Lord in Japan.
CFN-Japan students recognize that through Christ-like personal relationships with otherstudents outside of class, they can learn and grow, just as they do while in class. For example, while in a comical contest to see which blindfolded student (photo above) could feed his partner faster than the other team, there needs to be patience, understanding, a sense of humor, and a whole lot more.
Whether it be practicing music, or on an outing together (photos above), real life student-to-student relationships teach them to minister to each other with love, acceptance, forgiveness, service, confronting truth, and even apology. This avenue of inner growth helps them in their marriage, parenting, and other relationships in life.
Standing together with you looking to the Lord,
Charles and Dianne Gyurko
