F ro m t h e Pa s t o r . . . Justin Kelso to Japan. “How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” (Romans 10:14-15) Justin Kelso is joining a mission group led by Sean Luce, Lonnie and Pam Luce’s older son, and his wife Jennifer. They will be ministering in Kitakyushu, Fukoaka, Japan, July 23August 6. We need to pray for Kelso and his groups and I am asking you to pray to support him financially. The following is a letter from Kelso: Friends & Family, I have been blessed with an amazing opportunity! A group of missionaries associated with College Hills Baptist Church goes to Japan each year and I have been asked to join them. This group focuses highly on the involvement of family (including their young children) so while Rhi and the kids cannot be with me this year, I look forward to what God will do both in Japan and in our family in the coming years!

Contact Information

Justin Kelso to Japan (continued) I am reaching out to you to join me in God work. I ask that you please come along side us in prayer and that you continue to lift the mission up through the duration of our trip. We will be hosting a couple of Vacation Bible Schools for the children and often the mothers will come hang out. The fathers are generally the hardest to minister to, so I ask that a special prayer be lifted up on behalf of them. Begin praying that hearts will be opened as we minister to these kids. That they will not only accept Christ as their Lord and Savior but that they will go home and tell their mom and dad of His love. Pray that we are all given over completely to the Lord so that He may use us to speak to these people, both through our words and actions; that in everything we do His name will be glorified. I am also reaching out to those who feel God leading them to give. This trip will not be cheap and while I do not have the funds necessary I know the Father does. He will bring forward the people to partner with us, and through them, provide the way. I am very excited to see God working and very humbled that I have been called to take His word to the unreached! I am also so thankful for those of you who will join with us in prayer for these people and to those of you who will give. May God bless you as you help us to plant the seeds in so many young lives. —Kelso Justin Kelso 1516 North St. San Angelo TX 76901 Financial gifts may be given through: College Hills Baptist Church 2102 Johnson Ave San Angelo TX 76904 (please make checks to: College Hills Baptist Church with “Kelso” in the memo) 
