“Thank you, Rick, for this helpful article. My soul was brought to task and encouraged, reminded once again of the Lord’s kindness to his people. Your ministry continues to bless my life and I’m praying for you, your family, all the staff, and supporters of RickThomas.net. May you continue to spread the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and may He bring others alongside to support this work!” – Nancy
“I have been following you for decades, it seems. It was due to your articles that I decided to get a Biblical Counseling certificate through ICOC. It took two years through my church in Tokyo. I see a great need here in Japan for your material to be made in Japanese. My friend and I want to start a Christian counseling material/education/worship community center. I was so moved by your podcast today. I mean deeply that I am writing now. This may sound silly, but I desire to do a Rick Thomas Japan counseling. Maybe just giving us some advice would be great too as we are starting this next March. Thanks for reading this. God bless you.” – Leilani
