I have lost count of the here and there times over the summer!
Just after returning from California, I jumped in my car and headed to Tsu for the JBC college and career camp. It was a great 30 hours of time with some quality young people who love God and fellowship.
We had a good time eating, playing, laughing, studying and praying together. We learned about the privilege of work and how God has provided work for us. I learned a new German work, although I am not sure how to spell it, beluf ベルーフ. This word includes the meaning of work + calling, not just work for work's sake, but thinking of work as a calling, a purpose in work that is not making money. Our prayer is that work will be part of serving God for these young people as the learn, grow, and join the work force.
