Happy belated Resurrection Day/Easter! The sakura (cherry) trees are starting to bloom again in Yokohama. This is the time of year when we can share about Jesus. Easter is known in many countries including Japan. Have you ever met someone from another country and wanted to share about the good news of Jesus but did not have the language ability? Maybe this is something you can use. is an organization that is described as “It is our desire that the Body of Christ would rise to the challenge of using effective cross-cultural evangelism tools utilizing the latest in mobile communication technologies, coupled with linguistically and culturally appropriate presentations of the gospel message.” In other words, these are high-tech tools to share Jesus with our international friends. Over 350 animations and films (for free download or viewing) in the two most popular digital formats are available (but no Japanese). Also, there are links to audio Bibles, in over 1300 different languages, that is searchable.

Last month we asked for prayers for our daughter, Miki. She graduated from Soshin Girls School this month and she was accepted to the Economics program at Yokohama National University! We believe this is the Lord’s choice for her and a great blessing for us. Not only is this a very good school academically, it also is very affordable (~1/4 the cost of private college) and just 40 minutes walk from our home! We are giving thanks to God for His provision. Thanks for your prayers!

May the Lord continue to richly bless you!

With Thanks and much Love,

Gordon and Lee Ann Hwang
