Fukuin - Japanese word for "gospel" Proverbs2525.org - Like cold water to a weary soul, so is good news from a distant land.

Welcome to Proverbs2525.org, the ministry web site of Dan and Karen Ellrick, missionaries in Osaka, Japan.  We hope that you enjoy your visit with us and that you will come back often to explore more.

Different Affliation, Same Ministry

Moshi Moshi since the Tohoku Disaster
(June 2011) Besides the blog, news of our activities assisting right after the 3/11 disaster are in our May 2011 Moshi Moshi prayer letter. You might also like to check out the videos Dan shot there.

Check out the Cool Water Blog... here!
(Feb. 2011) As you can easily see, our proverbs2525 website is badly out of date. Rather than updating the existing site, we have decided to try a redesign using newer technology (content management software) so that it will be easier to update the site in the future. Meanwhile, in order to provide some current news, Dan has started blogging. Check it out and leave us some comments. God bless you!
