I want to make the most of it and pray that you all will feel led to continue to stand with me. I feel grateful but unworthy to be your representative here in Japan . But, it is you and the Lord who will keep me here until my term in Japan ends on May 31st of next year. “WALK WITH ME!” Japan
Prayer for Roberta Stephens
Gracious God, we thank you for the long and faithful ministry that you have provided through Roberta Stephens, our missionary in
. She has followed your call and there are many persons in Japan, young and old, who lovingly remember that it was through Roberta that they first learned about Jesus and accepted him as their Japan
Lord and Savior. May Roberta know of our continuing love and support as we walk with her through this final year of foreign ministry and into retirement. May she come to know the Lord’s own validation of her ministry: “Well done, good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Master”.
