This is a re-post from the other welcome board. This is probably more appropriate here.
こんにちは ! My wife and I have felt called to serve long-term in mission in Japan with an organization called OMF. OMF operates from the Tokyo area and up, and we will be in Hokkaido once we arrive in hopefully EOY 2020. I have always been very interested in apologetics and am so excited and encouraged by the transformation God is bringing to the Japanese people through apologetics. I was so moved at Razi’s time in Japan and the talk he was able to give. We will spend our first term focusing on language and culture studies, but then will transition into a church planter role. I would absolutely love to continue using and being a part of the Christian apologetic community in Japan. We have been able to engage in some very meaningful relationships here with Japanese, and Lord willing, my wife, daughter, and I will be doing that among the Japanese in a couple of years.
Currently we are planting a church in Richmond Tx. with a couple of other families and we just had our first public launch service this past Sunday (Jan. 27th). When transitioning to the Japanese mission field we hope to be a part of church planting efforts there too.
