A letter from the Shadburnes

Dear prayer supporters,

We want to begin by saying thank
you to everyone for your willingness to pray for Japan and our family. I know many of you have been praying for us for a long time and we deeply thank each one of you. We are proud and grateful to say that Greater Gresham Baptist Church, Riviera Baptist Church, Japanese International Baptist Church, Eugene Japanese Baptist Church, Parkdale Baptist Church, and Peninsula Baptist Church have all agreed to develop a strategic prayer partnership with Okayama Japan and us. We are very excited to develop and strengthen these prayer partnerships and watch how God uses all of us to touch Japan with the gospel. With greater partnerships we can complete much more work than by ourselves.

We will be back in Portland early October and will be flying into Japan October 17th. We want to keep you up to date and informed with all that God is doing in Japan. Please utilize our website and stay in touch with us through it ( Here you will find photos, links, and much more information. Along with updates and
newsletters we also pray for the chances to come visit you as much as possible when on state
side. We have valued our time
with you and want to be able to
spend more time with you.

Please stay in touch.
We want to hear from you!
Dana, Amy,
Caden and Ashton Shadburne
