Dear Yokosuka Baptist Church and friends, 

    Friday showers of blessing and greetings in

    I don't think I shared this great picture of
the recent Mother's Day Banquet picture yet, we appreciate the Tabugans.  You
have more pictures in the YBC Facebook, go to
and find Yokosuka Baptist Church Facebook. See attached special picture. 

    We appreciate Miss Ethel as well for the
Sunday bulletins.

Are you aware that after we
put GOD first all the time, in YBC after GOD, family and loved-ones are
next.  No Pastor's Visitation on Memorial Day Monday - see attached

Are you aware that though we
are a missions-minded and soul winning church, in YBC we want to apply
Heavenly wisdom.  On scheduled YBC soul winning today and other
times, if it is raining half an hour before it starts, it is automatically
cancelled - see attached bulletin.

Are you aware that we are
about to hold the 3RD baby shower in 2017? - see attached bulletin

  • Are you aware that everyone
    is invited to the Patch and Pee Wee Potluck, Fellowship, and Games? - see
    attached bulletin
  • Are you aware when the YBC

    Let us bring people to church and expect to
receive a blessing for the LORD.


    Wear a flag pin, or a flag tie, or modest
Christian attire, with red, or white, or blue.  Happy Memorial Day to all
of you!


    Please pray, pray, and pray for Yokosuka Baptist
Church and the Navatos daily.  I just prayed for you specifically by name.


Love in CHRIST,


Missionary Ed Navato
