God has blessed us with three wonderful children: Timothy, Karen, and Ethan. We are currently serving the Lord in the city of Aomori, Japan. We met while studying for the ministry at Crown College in Powell, Tennessee. While serving as a youth pastor in Leesburg, VA, God began burdening our hearts for the people of Japan. In 2010, we surrendered to God's call on our lives. In 2012, we arrived in Japan. We served in Kobe, Japan while going through language school until the summer of 2014 when we moved to Aomori. Aomori is a city in northern Japan of about 300,000 people. The need for gospel preaching churches is great in this city and we covet your prayers as we serve God here.
