March 30 was our big Annual Business Meeting. Reflecting on Jesus' goodness in leading and providing during the year was great. The hot topic was about whether we should start Harvest Chapel in 2008. There was good discussion and dialogue which indicated that people were really grappling with the issues. Stepping out into the unknown and walking by faith is a scary thing unless eyes are firmly on Jesus. In the end all of the points were overwhelmingly approved.
So now the real work of the new year begins. May people meet Jesus and may His name be lifted up more in the Tsugaru in days to come.

On March 27 there was an Irish Nite in Itayanagi. Visitors from Northern Ireland, John Orme and his mother Katie planned it and made the food. There were 38 who attended of which 22 are not attendees of a church. The food was great and John spoke clearly about St.Patrick.
