I grew up in East Africa as the daughter of WGM missionaries, I never imagined
that I would one day be called to be a missionary myself. When I first received
my call while I was a college senior, I knew that God had begun a new thing and
that I wouldn’t be going back to Africa as a missionary. But I still wasn’t
sure where I would end up.
wasn’t until I was a seminary student that God began to put the Japanese people
on my heart. Several of the other students taking classes, including two of the
other women in the dormitory, were Japanese. It was through hearing the burden
these two shared for their own people that God began to tug at my heart as
years, I served as a missionary disciple in Japan, teaching English; working
with children, youth, and college-age students; and learning Japanese. Now, as
a career missionary with WGM, I am involved in church ministries, teaching Fun
Fun English to children, and sharing the life-giving message of the gospel with
Japanese young people.
