Almost all of my mom’s side of the family came from five different states to celebrate my grandmother’s 85th birthday.

God is answering prayers. He is working in hearts to support us by praying and giving. This is exciting progress.

We still have a long way to go until our goal of 100% by the end of March next year. We are now just over 20% of our needed $6600/month to leave for Japan. Our plan for this month is to find more ministry partners in the Greenville, SC area. Please pray God will encourage our brothers and sisters to join our team, not just in prayer but in giving.

Thank you for supporting our ministry through prayer and monthly giving. We appreciate your love and care for us. We are excited and humbled to be working together with you to take the gospel to the many lost in Japan.

If you haven’t joined our team, partner with us in taking the glorious gospel to Japan. Commit to our burden and vision; be a monthly pledge partner, because God has given us what we have to be used for His kingdom (click here and sign up to join our monthly support team).

Let us know of others who may be interested in partnering with us. God has established His church to work together in furthering the Gospel throughout the world. I believe together, through His power, we can reach the millions of lost in Japan and transform the country from the 2nd largest unreached people group to a reached and reaching people group.

If you have any questions please email us ( or communicate with us on facebook. We look forward to sharing our burden and vision with you.

I took this picture a long time ago from the top of Nagoya train station at Christmas time. So many lost souls who have never heard the Gospel.

Taishi’s getting ready to handle the giant cockroaches in Japan. Emi’s happy to just watch Taishi hold it.
