Japan: Hosmer Family Update

What an incredible month we had in December 2013. Such an exciting time to serve the Lord!

  • We started the month off by having a weekend Marriage Seminar. AIMers Cole and Stacie Panton did an excellent job teaching us the keys to a great marriage. We had about 25 enrolled in this seminar.
  • We were able to connect with the First UPC and do some joint outreach. We decided to do some Christmas caroling in a church neighborhood. How exciting it was to see Japanese come to their doors and balconies to watch us sing. By doing this both churches had many first time visitors.
  • This month we had three people baptized in Jesus name. What a joy it is to see Japanese get to know Jesus for the very first time.
  • We finished the year off with a special watch night service. We had a foot washing and a communion service. Many who were there had never been to a communion service before. Then we began to worship the Lord to bring in the New Year. After this was done, we did the traditional Okinawa New Year eating of Soba Noodles.
