In January, we helped launch a new work here in our city of Sanda. One of our ministry partners, Keishi Fujii and his wife Kazumi, began Life Design Network, which provides coaching for businesses, marriages and families. LDN is a business, but has the flavor of a non-profit organization, and our desire is for it to penetrate into our local community where there are needs. Wendi and I are partnering as staff, and we will help to provide coaching, teaching and organizing events as we move forward.
The kick-off celebration was held on January 16, where we introduced the work and had a special speaker. Arthur Hollands, a tattooed Harley riding evangelist, author and poet, spoke on finding your unique self.
After the celebration, we held another meeting for Arthur to speak to the young volunteer leaders at the YMCA where we held the event. He had them busting out laughing as he shared from his heart right to theirs. It was awesome to be able to bless the YMCA for letting us holding the celebration there. Here is a picture of Arthur with the young leaders.
We believe that this new network will allow us the chance to interact and bless the city of Sanda on a new level, and are excited to watch what God does.
