おひさしぶりです Long time, no see

I'm sure some of you who are not on Facebook wonder what has happened to me, since there have been no updates on my blog. But I'm alive. The picture from today's hike is a proof.

In Norway it's autumn, but September has been unusually mild, even nicer than some days in the summer. From the top of the mountain we had a nice view of Lake Brusdal.
山の上からブルスダル湖 の眺めがきれいでした。

Today I had my day off, but usually I'm travelling around, visiting prayer groups and prayer houses, where I share the word of God and inform about my work in Japan. 

This is a prayer house at Bergsøy, a small island between Molde and Kristiansund. A friend from college works as a teacher, and most children living on the island attend her children's club on Fridays in her home. The day after we had a meeting for adults in this prayer house.
Preparations. "Welcome in Jesus' name".

In preached, showed pictures from Japan and played the organ.

 One more person attended the meeting, but he had to leave before coffee time. So there was plenty of delicious food for us!

When I visited this place around 20 years ago, I had written a verse from the Bible on a paper. Later a man had made a frame on in, and it was still there on the wall:

 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
「神は実にそのひとり子をお与えになったほどに世を愛された。それは御子を信じる者が、ひとりとして滅びることなく、永遠の命を持つためである。」 ヨハネ3:16

 Here is another group I visited last week. 先週訪問したグループです。

I've also been interviewed on the mission's local radio.

In the end let us meet my brother's sheep that had come home from the mountain after a long summer.
