Christmas Blessings

1302pic1Christmas is always an extra busy time of the year. This year was no exception. After our last service on Christmas Eve, we sighed a breath of relief, but also thanked the Lord for His blessings. Again this year, God blessed us with many lost people attending our various Christmas services. Please pray that the hope filled Christmas message of our Savior’s birth, will bear fruit in their hearts.

Mrs. Tomita’s Salvation

1302Pic2Just before New Year’s Day, Mrs. Tomita called to tell us that she could not see out of her left eye. She wanted us to pray for her upcoming eye surgery. During her two week hospital stay (long hospital stays are normal in Japan), Cindy visited her nearly every day. In the process, God blessed us with opportunity to talk to her about the Lord. What a joy it was to hear her pray and ask the Lord to forgive her and to make her His child. Pray for Mrs. Tomita. Pray that her left eye will be restored and that she will grow in the Lord.

Agape’s New Mobile-Friendly Web Site

Japan is a country with lots of modern technology. Most everyone has a cell phone and most of them are smart phones. Internet usage is up, but often it is via a cell phone or tablet as opposed to a computer monitor. From the beginning, Agape Bible Baptist Church has had a web site, but recently we decided to upgrade it so that it would be optimized for viewing on cell phones, tablets, or monitors. It is in Japanese, but if you’d like to check it out, our web site is If you have Japanese friends, please feel free to introduce them to it. Pray that God will continue to bless and use this web site to reach lost Japanese.

60,000 New Tracts

Our newest order of tracts arrived, shortly before Christmas. We are planning to pass these out by the end of this year. Please pray for God’s continued blessing on His Word as it is delivered to homes across our city.

Thank You for Caring

Thank you for your faithfulness to pray and give. Thank you for caring for Japanese like Mrs. Tomita. Please pray that God will bless us with many more Japanese who will come to know Christ as their Savior. We pray that God will bless and use you for His glory.

Co-Laborers for Christ,

Mike and Cindy Burgett
