Aaron & Hannah begin their first four-year term in Northern Japan engaged in “Daniel Training,” a season of ministry modeled after the biblical story of Daniel’s posture of humility and learning as he served and lived among the Babylonians. This includes two years of full-time language & culture learning, followed by two years of serving alongside another ministry during their “Training Designation.” By ministering incarnationally, evangelization and discipleship will be the means, by God’s grace, of achieving the long-term vision of seeing thriving, indigenous churches raising up the next generation of leaders and planting church-planting churches.
- Pray that our family will handle transitional stress well as we adapt to a new culture and home.
- Pray for patience and humility as we learn Japanese
- Pray that God will enable us to be a light to those around us, despite our lack of language proficiency
