BBQ & Bible. Messages & Mushrooms. Onsen & Octopus. Shrimp & Seaside. These and others are the makings of a missionary retreat. This past weekend we enjoyed a rare break from the craziness of missions...to the craziness of missionaries. Our annual Japan Baptist Fellowship 3-day retreat was at a seaside hotel in Ibaraki prefecture.
Every once in a while we need to get apart from the work, and reflect on God's goodness and greatness in our life that empowers us in the work. Not having to be in charge, and getting a chance to hear a few messages in English is a great blessing. Take a look of the photos of "our gang" by clicking here. Go ahead and look! You need a break, too!
