The quilt arrived!  I picked it up on Sunday morning on my way to church!  Hitomi really liked it.  She wasn't sure about opening it in front of us though, since that is rude in Japan.  :)  We told her please do because we wanted a picture to send you! :)  Thank you!!!!

Mr and Mrs S

 The Sakamotos are friends of Shan Reed from Japan. This quilt reminds us to pray for our friends throughout the world. 
Acts 1:8
.... you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Prayer Requets for Sakamotos:
*Praise God for the way He worked in this couples'life to bring them to church and salvation together, as a couple
*Pray for them as they continue to prepare for baptism, which will be held in October
*Pray for their witness to their sons, that they will see and experience God's love in and through their parents
*Pray for Mr.and Mrs. Sakamoto as they interact with friends, that Jesus' light will shine brightly in them.
*Pray that they will continue to grow in their faith!
Thank you for your prayers for this lovely couple!
