Dear Family and Friends
“Whatever I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light, and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops”. (Matt.10:27) 
Just as in Jesus’ time, roofs were flat on top, and people could speak to their neighbors from there, so also many apartment buildings in modern Tokyo are flat (photo).  Declaring the Word of God “from the rooftops” today is through radio or TV, or through personal testimony at street level. It is our privilege, calling, and responsibility to share the Good News of Jesus, fulfilling His Word, “the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea”. (Isaiah 11:9)
When my mentor told me that he saw only 2 faults in my life, I was happy, until he told me what those faults were: 1) Everything I SAY, and 2) Everything I DO !

A WORK of the Lord in Japan.
The Japanese characters on the sign say literally, “CFNJ Holy Book Study Institution” (= Bible School). The 1st character, “holy”, is comprised of 3 smaller characters which are EAR, MOUTH, and KING. We can learn from this that if we HEAR and SPEAK the Word of our KING, the Lord Jesus, we can become righteous, and “holy” in His sight. 

Students studying at CFNJ are in training to do just that, and to live lives that are based on God’s Word.  They are dedicated to sharing that Word “from the housetops”, from the streets, and from wherever the Holy Spirit leads them. Please pray to the Lord of the Harvest, that many students will come from all over Japan to sit at Jesus’ feet and learn His Word at CFN-Japan Bible School.  
Standing together with you looking to the Lord,
Charles and Dianne Gyurko
