November 2010


This time of year is harvest time in Kyoto just like in other places too. The changing colors of foliage present the changing of the season in its natural beauty. And, the events we have had at church reflect the feeling and sentiments of autumn.

We wrapped up our ten-month program for Lighthouse English Café last November 27th. 30 people attended it. Those who came were treated to a semi-art exhibition cum talk show with Masako Miyamoto as the featured guest. Ms. Miyamoto is an accomplished painter with annual exhibitions in prominent cities and galleries in Japan. She spoke with such candor dealing with personal experiences as well her encounter with Jesus, whom she now serves lovingly and faithfully.

On November 28th, we again held our fourth annual Thanksgiving Supper. Over fifty people joined and feasted on turkey, veggies, sandwiches, soup and several desserts. The highlight of the program was the reading of Biblical passages on praise and giving thanks to God. People also shared their testimonies around the table, set just like a big family gathering.

We also thank God for the brothers who visited to help in the ministries. Keith Bouy (Lake Villa, IL, USA), who comes to AKC twice a year stayed from Nov. 10 to De. 1. Pastor Leo Mirabuenos, a Filipino missionary candidate who stayed from Nov. 9-Dec. 7, joined many events and spoke in both the Filipino and the International services.
