Deepest Appreciation

May 29, 2019

Dear Prayer Partners and Supporters,

Greetings from Japan.  We pray you and your family are well.

We are writing this to express our gratitude to all our prayer partners and financial supporters.  First of all, we would not have been here without each one of you.  We have faced many challenges and trials and your prayers and support kept us going.  Please know how much we appreciate you all.

We also would like to let you know that we were notified April 1 via email by FBC Arlington that they would not continue with current or future ministry in Japan starting April of 2019.  In addition, Michael’s contract with Restore Hope terminated on May 2nd.

We are sad to end our partnership with them.  We are thankful for all their support over the last 8 years.  We pray their work in other parts of the world will be fruitful.

We have spent the last month praying about our future.  We asked our family and close friends to pray with us.  Even though our future is uncertain, one thing we know for sure is that we are called to make Him known among Japanese people. So after much prayer and consideration, we decided to stay in Sendai to continue our ministry.  We are in the process of joining a new sending agency as well as finding a new home church.  We sincerely ask you all to pray with us. We want to follow God’s direction.  We praise God for all the work He has started here and pray He will continue to bless His ministry.

We would appreciate it so much if you could continue praying for us and supporting our ministry.  If you have any questions, please feel free to write us anytime.  We will continue to update you as things progress.

Thank you again for partnering with us.


Michael and Yu Towery
