TEAM JAPAN: Paul & Violette Bridgman

 "We are developing a church here. Much of our time is involved in teaching English conversation to Japanese. There are about 50 students that we are teaching. We always include an evangelistic Bible lesson at the end of each class or the whole class is completely an English Bible lesson. Our church built a new building in 2010. Attendance has doubled since then. We now have a Japanese pastor who is attending seminary during the week. He and I (Paul)  are co-pastoring the church. Recently two men were baptized. We want to be more effective in discipleship and mobilizing our believers for evangelism and ministry. Thanks for your prayers!"

 "As you know Sue and I are entering a time of transition. I have been a missionary pilot in Africa for 33 years, but I will be 65 in July 2013 and by national law must stop flying then. We are well into our transition to full time evangelism and discipleship, primarily among Muslims, based in Nairobi, Kenya. Every Sudan we have 20 - 30+ people in our home for a day of Bible study and fellowship and eating together and prayer."
