Dear one and all:
How are you today? I hope that you are fine.
I am sending you this message to let you know that our host for this site is starting a new policy that affects us all: starting in July, Ning.com will make this service available for a FEE. The developers have made their intention public as can be seen on the topmost line when you open your account or personal site.
How do we respond to this change? I would like to know your thoughts on this. Please either write a blog message or make your ideas known in the "Forum". I am particularly interested to know if you would like to maintain your account with JPL and to make sure to update it as often as possible. Hence, we might consider the option to raise funds to pay for the service. Otherwise, just like any other initiatives, it may have reached already its natural end and we may decide to dissolve JPL altogether.
At any rate, I would like to personally thank all of you who have made the Japan Prayer Link a platform for prayer, maintaining contact with your friends and family, letting us have a glimpse of your personal life through photos and videos, and for sharing your experiences with the Lord to encourage the rest of us as we read what you have written here.
"And in everything you do, do it all for the glory of GOD!" Yes. And, for this site too!
Thank you for your continued prayers for Japan and for us.
Pastor Joseph Ricohermoso
