Our vision for ministry in Japan includes modeling healthy gospel-centered family to our neighborhood and city. During our time here in Missouri we’ve had the privilege to see family growth both in the life of Karis Church and among the various families that make up our church family. We believe that growth is an important mark of a healthy family. We want to grow as disciples of Jesus and grow the number of disciples we are making as Jesus calls us to do in Matthew 28:18-20. With that part of our vision in mind we are excited to annouce a new addition to our family. Megumi is pregnant with our second child and due on August 28th. We pray regularly that our children would come to know the love of Christ and the truth of the gospel through our example and we are excited to continue this endeavor in Tokyo.
