Trip to Toronto




one of the benefits of having a wife in grad school. We got to go to Toronto and see Niagara for very cheap since her school covered her expenses for a conference.

Summer mission trip & Future calling

We are planning to go on a mission trip to St. Vincent. The coolest thing is that we are considering whether this is where the Lord is calling us to start as missionaries. It seems like a great ministry to learn from. They have three main focuses that I am interested working with. Theological training, Church growth, and a ministry called Project Ebeneezer. It would be very exciting to participate in serving Christ's church in any of these capacities.
Our latest vision is to serve with MIA (www.mia.org) for a few years to get experience in ministry, then move to perumission (perumission.org) to learn more about a mission strategy. They have a very interesting economic development plan that I have been asked to be a part of with my carpentry/discipleship interests. All of this with the goal of preparing to bring our experience in ministry to join forces in bringing the light of the gospel to Japan.
This is what we see right now, but we trust the Lord will lay out more clearly His plans for us as the time is right.
