dsc_0127God has done some amazing things in 2016. We began our deputation journey a year ago and God has lead us to New Hampshire, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, and Missouri. Throughout it all God has provided our needs, using you as His means.

新年明けましておめでとうございます。 2016年は、神様の素晴らしい御業を見る年となりました。年の初めからデピュテーションの旅が始まり、神様は私たちをニューハンプシャー州から、ハワイ州、ペンシルベニア州、ノースカロライナ州、サウスカロライナ州、ウェストバージニア州、ミズーリ州へと導かれました。デピュテーション中も、神様は祈りのサポーターとしてお与え下さった皆様を通して、私たちの必要を満たして下さいました。

We now have multiple churches and individuals from across the country partnering with us to take the Gospel to the second largest unreached people group in the world, the Japanese people. Thank you for praying. Thank you for giving. We are halfway there. God has brought us from 0% to 50% of our needed monthly pledge amounts to live and minister in Japan.


We have two more trips planned for 2017 so far and hopefully others as we meet more contacts. God is good, all the time, and we continue to trust Him to use His people to supply our needs as we plan a big move this year, from South Carolina to Japan.


Our timeline of moving to Japan in the Spring (April/May) might need to be moved back just at bit. We have another Vanning that wants to enter the world at that time (May 30th due date). We will keep you posted as the little one develops.


Please keep us in your prayers as we travel, especially with Nozomi being pregnant. Pray for us as we make many decisions about moving. I feel a little dizzy when I try to think of all that needs to be done both here in the US and also in Japan to move our family of 5+1 to the other side of the globe. But it’s exciting to be a part of what God is doing in Japan.


Join our monthly support team. Click here and sign up with a monthly pledge amount. (Email us if you have trouble with this so we can help set it up.) If everyone who reads this gave $200, $100, $50 or $25 we would immediately be at 100%.
