“For God’s gifts and His call are irrevocable — He never withdraws them once they are given, and He does not change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call.” Romans 11:29 Amplified.
In a 1930 vision former Bethel Temple missionaries Manfred & Hope Askew received a call to serve in Japan. From that time until God’s call to the Askews became a reality, more than 20 years passed.
Click on the link below to read their story as written by Hope just before they set out for Japan in 1951.
PS: I remember a sign on the Askew’s front door at the old Bethel Gospel Park in Federal Way that greeted visitors with “We ASKEW Inn.” –nao
