Gospel all these years here in the States and have had the
privilege on five occasions to preach revival meetings in a
military church in Rota, Spain, God has now called us to go
and preach the same Gospel to our military overseas.
My wife and I have been on deputation since April 15, 2012,
with about 90% of our needed support now raised. To God be
the glory! Thus far, in eleven months we have been in ninety-
eight churches presenting our burden for our military.
We were in Germany February 20 to March 1. There is a work
in progress at Mehlingen, Germany (Heritage Baptist Church),
near Ramstein Air Base that has called for us to come and
help them. I preached four times while there and God touched
several hearts. One young German boy whose mother and
grandmother are members of the church was saved on
Wednesday night. Praise the good Lord! We arrived back in
the States on Friday March 1.
Pray for us as we continue
deputation that the Lord would
allow us to raise our needed
support and reach the field as
soon as possible. We need more
churches to get on board with
us to reach our military with the
Gospel and support us financially so we can go quickly. Time
is wasting, and our military is being deployed not knowing
whether they will return. Pray for the spiritual needs of our
military and their families, especially those who are “Down
Range” in The War Zone.

What a joy to serve the Lord Jesus Christ!
We understand that our lives can never
truly be satisfying until we set our affections
on things above. For the Christian, that is
where his life is permanently hidden (see
Colossians 3:3). With that in mind, we are
excited to set our affections on reaching and
teaching military members and their families
stationed in Japan. We believe God has
called us and equipped us to this particular
ministry for two reasons:
1. I am ready to preach the Word. I just finished my Bachelor's degree in
Theology from Calvary Baptist Bible College and Seminary, King, North
Carolina. Dr. Roger Baker and Pastor Kevin Broyhill gave invaluable training
for which I am grateful to have been a part. I was trained to be a passionate
expositor of the infallible, inerrant, preserved Word of God. I have also been
under the ministry of my pastor, Jerry C. Gibson, who is in his 40 th year as
pastor. He has taught me kindness, patience and care for people.
2. We are familiar with the military culture/ministry. I served in the USAF for
six years, three in Japan. We experienced the long days and stress associated
with military life. I went through a deployment having to leave my wife and
three-month-old son behind as I headed to a combat zone on
Christmas Eve. Haruna knows what it is like to be a military
spouse. She knows what it is like to
raise children away from home.
This is part of military culture
and God has made us what
we are for the task at hand.
We are excited to reach
both service members
and local Japanese
families… almost like
two missionaries for
the price of one.
We are thankful for
this unique opportunity.
Military missions is so vital. A military church
with a BIMI military missions pastor lit my fire
to serve the Lord. I answered the call to preach
in a military church. I met and married my
wife in a military church. The Lord has
led us to work in a military church—oh,
the potential of this ministry! What a
privilege to be a part of such a rewarding
and challenging work! We love military
