Most teaching is done by native Christians, but the missionary also has his teaching place. Here Paul uses two camo water cans forpulpit and seat.   Y 1968--TO BRING YOU UPTO  TE Three years of extendedfurlough is rapidly coming to a close. Most of the summer and fall of  9^5was spent in reporting to oursupportingchurches speak ing in missionary rallies and teaching in summer camps. Since then we have made Security Colorado our home. Martha has finished highschool and has been granted a scholarship in Nebraska Christian College. She will begin classes this fall. She has dedicatedher life to full time service to  hrist and hopes to continue her missionary life We trust God will lead her back to Japan. Marcia has spent time each summer in summer camps. She has also been in the hospital each winter. The doctor has decided the cause of her trouble is bronchial asthma. We have bought an intermittentpositive pressurebreathing unit that relieves thebronchial congestion. The doc tor has given his OK for Marcia to return to Japan. Paul has kept busy helping where needed in the Secur ity church doing supply preaching in several places in southeast Colorado and earning a living. Worship services and the Sunday School activities have continued in Sendai duringour 3 year absence. There hasbeen the usual turn over in attendance each year however some are returning again after school and work schedules are completed. Chonan san was a Sunday School girl some 5 years ago. She is continu ing the Sunday School meetings since the Motoki s are gone. Brother Motoki s olderbrother passed away so ha has followedJapanese customand returned to his native place to take over the family business. He aJ SO plans to have Bible study classes in his home Of course this has left the work in Sendai without leadershipsince March I968. It is essential that we return to Sendai as soon as possible.  GOD CM DO IT THROUGH US WITH YOUR PRAYERS MD FINMCIAL HELP Just now only Godknows the Japanese co-worker who will help us in Tohoku.   believe God will lead in seekingout such a co-worker. This will be a first endeavor when we return to Sendai this fall A sec ond necessity will be to finish atleast part of the church building. The parsonage  2nd floorof church building) must be made ready forthe minister. Then we need the auditorium forthe church services. Un less prices have risen more than we think funds are on hand to hire this work done. Our first goal will be' to getthe Sendaichurch better established so it can be the centerfor reachingout into Tohoku with the  call of the villages -. Our fhll time goal and God given call is to take the Gospel to farming and mining villages through out the mou ntains of Tohoku and to the many fishing villages upand down the coast. We do this with tracts films and preached Word. You can help us. Return travel funds to Japan are on hand.
