Missionaries to Japan
Please make next Sunday morning’s MMT a priority as Jane Lennan (from the Japanese congregation and St Jude’s) shares with us her calling to serve with OMF in Japan as Administrative Assistant to the Serve Japan Coordinator in Chiba, near Tokyo, looking after those coming to Japan on short-term mission.
Andrew Adams (with Pioneers) and Jane Lennan (with OMF) are both planning and preparing to go as missionaries to Japan towards the end of 2016. Jane will be speaking at a Missions Morning Tea in the second half of the year and Andrew has spoken during the Combined Service in July to keep us up-to-date with what is happening and how we can support them.

If you do not want your child to be included in the class photo, will you please advise your child’s teacher.
