THANKS TO MY WEB-MASTER, CHRIST JAQUESS (, you can now hear my sermons in both Japanese and English on my web-site. On the left side of my home page, click on "Preaching." Then click on "Listen Online." Next, click on the sermon title you want to hear. Within the next month, I plan on including two sermons in English only for you to hear. The sermon titles are "The Man Who Preached Christ's Funeral" and "You're SomeOne Special." These sermons have been called classic sermons. If you want to know who preached Christ's funeral, you'll have to listen to that sermon. Be checking every so often to see if it is there. By the way, if you are needing your own web-site, I recommend Chris.

Starting November 1st, 2009, I will be preaching on Internet Radio. I will be preaching in Japanese mostly, but will interject some English. When I know the exact time and where to listen, I will write another blog. I am very excited about this new DOOR OF OPPORTUNITY the Lord has opened to me. I use to dream about preaching on the radio world-wide, but I figured it was a pipe-dream. However, with God all things are possible. It appears that I will be reaching more people now than I ever did during those 25 years we lived in Japan. As a missionary I am dependent on the support of churches and individuals who are led to help. For your information, you can send your support to Baptist Temple, 2655 N Grant Avenue, Springfield, Missouri 65803.
The PRECIOUS MEMORIES SUPPORT MINISTRY continues to reach out to help and comfort those who have lost a spouse. My books are selling well also. My first book NO MORE TEARS is now in its second edition and my second book BIBLE VERSES ON COMFORT WITH COMMENTS BY BILL HATHAWAY are being ordered by churches and individuals from all over the United States as well as some foreign countries. You can read more about this ministry by going to The SOS SOULWINNING MINISTRY also continues to grow. Several foreign countries have started schools to teach this Biblical concept of soulwinning. I would love to hear from you. Missionary/Author Bill Hathaway

During the month of July, 2009, an average of two books a day were requested and received. People from California to Pennsylvania have thanked me for writing "No More Tears." No one knows what a person experiences when one's spouse dies except someone who has actually gone through this deepest valley of life. "No More Tears" is written from experience. The subjects covered have been experienced first-hand. This book renders encouragement and comfort to those who are going through this long valley of life. I am also interested in getting Precious Memories Support Ministries started in other churches. Should you want one in your church, please contact me. "No More Tears" does have a section on how to start this ministry. I would like to hear from you. If you are going through this valley, I would be glad to talk with you and help you during this time of sorrow. I can be reached at 417-833-8584 or email me at
Remember the God of the mountain is still the God of the valley. Bill Hathaway

2nd book by Bill Hathaway now ready for mailing.

My new book, "BIBLE VERSES ON COMFORT with Comments by Bill Hathaway" is now ready to mail. This small book contains virtually all verses in the Bible dealing with comfort, encouragement, and the Lord's presence with you in whatever valley of life you may be facing. It can be the lost of your spouse, loved one or even other devasting valleys such as divorce, financial loss, emotional problems, family problems, etc. God is a God of love and compassion. Just as He is not willing that any should perish, so also He desires you to be happy. This book is available for just $3.00 each, but I would strongly advise you purchase my first book entitled, "NO MORE TEARS" for $10.00 (the price on my web site is $19.95, but you can purchase it directly from me at the above address or email address for $10.00). Both books would cost $13.00, but I would like a couple dollars for postage. I pay $2.34 to mail both books inside the U.S.

The 2nd addition of my book is now ready to send to anyone who would like one. During the past 4 days, I have received orders for 49 books. I have written the book with the purpose of helping and encouraging those who have lost a spouse. I am told that the book also has been an encouragement to those who have lost some close friend or relative. Many who received a copy of the first addition are ordering more to give to their friends. Churches and organizations have been ordering a number of books to have on hand to give to those who are sorrowing over the lost of their spouse. The Integrity Home Care of Missouri just ordered 30 books to give to those they deal with every day. Some of the titles in the book are: There Is Hope, When It First Happens, The "Why" Question, In Light of Rom. 8:28, What Good Can Come Out Of My Loss?, Is It Okay to Grieve? Tears, Christmas Alone, Accepting What Really Happened, It Happened So Suddenly, and a new article included in this second addition that was not in the first one is a article on Suicide. A new section has been added on How to Start and Operate a Precious Memories Support Ministry. I am urging churches all over the world to start such a ministry in their churhes. This ministry was born out of experience. The book is written from experience. My dear wife Dixie went to be with her Lord on Feb. 4, 2005. I don't have to say like so many, "I can't imagine." Loosing the person you loved for many years is a valley of life that everyone must face. It is comforting to know that Jesus said, "I will never leave thee nor forsake thee." You can order these books for a donation of $10.00 from me (the price on the book is $10.99). The postage for one book is $1.68; that does not include packing. You may contact me via email at or by calling me at 417-833-8584. My mailing address is: 3149 N Maranatha Ln #8, Springfield, MO 65803. Before I sign off, let me urge you to read my preceding post about my recent mission trip to Japan.




I never dreamed, nor was it in my plans to ride a jinrikisha, but while in Tokyo Pastor Hiroshi Saito talked me into it. I guess the Japanese don't often see an American riding down the streets of Tokyo on a jinrikisha. People were taking my picture and waving to me. Although that was an enjoyable side light, that was not the purpose of my trip to Japan. Our son Jim was with me the first two weeks of this trip. The Japanese are still talking about his testimony. Jim had a wonderful testimony as a layman. I was sure proud of him. Although Jim was born and raised in Japan, he had not been back to Japan in 31 years. It was surprising how he was able to speak in Japanese. All in all, I preached 26 times. Believe me, I was on the go all the time. The schedule was changed 3 times. They had to figure out where I was to be, how to get there and who would help me get there. In Japan, they drive on the left side of the road and the streering wheel is on the right side of the car. They didn't want us to drive and I don't blame them. I would no doubt wind up on the wrong side of the road after I turn. One high light of the trip was when I personally led a lady to the Lord. I sure enjoy seeing people get saved, but it is sure a thrill to personally lead a person to the Lord. I sure enjoyed being in the churches we started many years ago. I got to see some that got saved when we were there as missionaries. I actually cried on the plane coming back home. I was asked by missionaries and pastors to stay. I wish I could, but the Lord has given me 4 wonderful ministries here in Springfield, Missouri. There is the Japanese Church service where I preach each Sunday, the Precious Memories Support Ministry that I started for the purpose of helping and encouraging those who have lost a spouse, the SOS Soulwinning Ministry with the purpose of winning souls and teaching people how to win souls and the KWFC Radio Ministry. As you can see, I am kept busy for our Lord. Your prayers and financial support for these ministries is greatly appreciated. I will write another Blog to let you know about my book, "No More Tears." Please read the next post.
