YWAM Update

I got two more e-mail from YWAM in Japan. One from Maria McDaniel in Tokyo and the other from Sandy Gibbard from Japan National Office. I liked Maria’s e-mail. she gave me a breakdown of what it would take to join there staff and live there. I would need to come up with about (estimate only) $700 per month during my stay taking DTS. It looks like the next possible available time for them would be April, 09.

Now for Sandy. She said there is only two people in there National Office. Chiori Kawamoto is there Office Manager. Sandy lives in a Small Appartment and Chiori-san lives with her monther. She said untill now they have not had anyone volunteer from overseas except short-term teams. Also they have part-time volunteers help in the office but they live in Tokyo and did not need housing. If I come on a very short trip to see Japan. She said I might be able to stay with some DTS Leaders a few days. She said also they need a letter from my church saying that they send me out to work with YWAM as a missionary in Japan.

As for Language Classes she said there was some weekly free classes offered by many city goverments.

I would incurrage anyone reading this to pray for YWAM Tokyo to find a place with all the fixings (Coffee Shops, English Classes, Concerts, Artistic Presentations and etc)

Like I said above I will need about $700.00 dollars per month to live in Japan plus $4600.00 for DTS admission, so I would like to request if any of my friends or family are reading this blog to let me know if you would be interested in supporting me financially one time or commitment once the time comes. Also I need people to pray for me and ask god to remove the barriers in my way.
