Ways to Give at Cornerstone – Our Blessing Box

During these difficult times we are seeing more and more activity at the Blessing Box in our parking lot.  On a daily basis people are donating to the box and taking items as needed.  If you would like to donate you can add things directly to the box or make financial donations to the church and memo them “Blessing Box?  We are SO grateful for your continued generosity.


The Japanese government has decided to not accept new visa applications until COVID-19 is under control not only in Japan but also the world. This is a bummer but completely understandable. So, I have been delayed in departing for Japan and will hopefully be able to go sometime soon. This is just a delay; I am still going to Japan to work with SonRise Cafe!
Let us continue to pray for the recovery of our world and the end of COVID-19.


I am thankful to be going through this experience, here, with all of you. It is a huge stress relief on my end to not be in Japan worrying about everyone back home. I am thankful God planned this from the beginning. Please stay safe and I am praying for you. I am home too and would love to chat with you or hear your prayer requests; please feel free to reach out.
