We’re excited about 2017. God has been doing some amazing works in our lives. We are looking forward to him doing more in the coming months.


Thank you for your prayers about us making decisions concerning moving to Japan. It’s awesome to see our plans solidifying before our eyes. I’ll wait till next month to give you more details about what is happening. God is answering your prayers! We’re so excited to be a part of what God is doing in Japan.


Please continue praying for us as we travel, especially with Nozomi being pregnant and keeping up with Taishi’s homeschooling, while taking care of his two littler siblings.


For the next four months, that’s February, March, April, and May, our monthly goal is to raise $900 in monthly pledges each month. If we can meet this monthly goal we will be ready to leave for Japan after our daughter is born (yes, it’s a girl!) at the end of May.


To help us reach our goal this month of $900 in monthly pledges, join our monthly support team. Click here and sign up with a monthly pledge amount of $200, $100, $50 or $25. (Email us if you have trouble with this so we can help set it up.)


Take 7 minutes to watch our video about the need in Japan and visit our website here. Let your friends know about our ministry by posting our video or website on Facebook.

Although we’ve had some snow in SC (see picture at top), it seems most days are warm enough to go without coats or jackets and to go bike riding!

We’re glad we get to spend time with my grandparents when we’re in SC. It’s a treasured time watching them enjoy my children and my children enjoying them.
