Jon and I had the chance to attend the Acts29 Australia/New Zealand/ Japan conference in Sydney, Australia. It was a 10-11 hr plane ride and since the kids stayed in Okinawa, it was a nice quiet trip! We were at the beginning of the cornea-virus so there was the beginning of all the traveling restrictions. Thankfully, there were no traveling issues!
The conference was incredible. The speakers, sessions and music along with the chance to connect with churches in Australia/New Zealand, really blessed both of our hearts. We were refreshed and encouraged on multiple levels. Very grateful for the chance to be a small part of the time there by sharing the heart of ministry in Japan.
And we were very grateful for the opportunity to be away from normal life and see some of the sights! Never in our wildest dreams did Australia come on our radar as a place to see!
The Australia/New Zealand network has adopted our Acts29 Japan network as it begins its fledging life. So we are looking forward to continued partnership and encouragement ahead.
