Background Info:

Our journey started in 2010. We had just recently had our first daughter, Abbi, and were happily serving and working at our local church. Things were well and comfortable, but they were about to change.

As we had been in God's Word and spending time in prayer together, we had a burden to get out of the bondage of debt. We wanted to live as simply as possible so that we may be able to use more of our resources to advance the Kingdom of God. We sold a car and our home, and paid off all our debt.

Through these steps we were free of debt and had nothing holding us back. We had been growing in the Word and were ready for cross-cultural work overseas. As we prayed for God to show us where He wanted us, God said stay. This did not make sense to us, as we were struggling with the leadership at our local church, but we just trusted God and His plan. In March of 2011 our local church went through a very difficult time and it was clear of why God had us stay. We were a source of consistency and encouragement through that time.

In May 2011 God blessed us with our second daughter, Ryli. A month after she was born, we started praying about a country to adopt from. After about a month of praying God had answered our prayer in a way that would turn our lives upside down. Casi had felt like it was a country in Asia. Dan was thinking more specifically Japan, BUT...he added, "the burden is not to adopt a child, it is go." We knew the call was to move and go make disciples in Japan.

So this is where we find ourselves today. We are preparing to go into the mission field of Japan, working with SIM. Our heart is broken for Japan. There are 127 million people and less than 1% are evangelical. They need the hope of Jesus Christ. We are excited to see His Kingdom be built among the people of Japan. Together with you, we can reach this nation.

 

Ministry Assignment:

The objective of the Great Commission is to share the life of Christ. But in Japan, 99% of the population is unreached by the Life of Jesus Christ. An optimal way to do this is by multiplying churches, which can reach more Japanese.

90% of Japanese who become Christians do so because they heard the Gospel through a trusted friend or relative. Everything in the process of multiplying churches begins and ends with relationships that show forth the love and truth of Jesus Christ.

As a Church Planting Associate, we will be assigned to work with a Japanese pastor in a new church plant. Experienced Asian Access church-planting missionaries will serve as our role models, and provide assistance in helping us use our gifts and abilities in ministering under a Japanese pastor.

While English teaching is one tool for building relationships, many other ministry opportunities exist depending upon the needs of our Japanese church and upon our giftedness. These outreaches will be focused on making friends in our community and may include: music, drama, cooking classes, leading Bible studies, teaching English Bible classes or Sunday School classes, children's programs, camps, coffee houses, etc.

“When we do mission, we need one heart. So we can do it together.”

These two sentences best sum up our commitment to live and work in community. Pastor Yukimasa Otomo shared this with me to describe his partnership with A2 missionaries Robert and Roberta Adair. The partnership between Japanese pastors and A2 missionaries is deep. As Yukimasa Sensei added, “Having Robert [here] is good for me, because I can share my heart.” Robert was excited to partner with this pastor, too...

Dan Brown: Learning About Strength

Does God teach missionaries? Definitely! Well, let's just say that the good ones come equipped with a humble learning posture. Take Dan Brown, for example.

In this clip, Asian Access/SIM missionary Dan Brown shares about what he is learning about doing ministry in his own strength versus doing it through God's strength. Serving with Asian Access as a Missional Partner with Oasis Life Chapel in Rifu, Japan, Dan talks openly about his weakness and struggles in ministry:

"So I've really come to learn that I'll do my part. I'll do the possible. I'll go to class. I'll study. I'll show up for ministry, for church each week, just to love and serve people to be a presence. But really it's going to be God who has to do the work."

Dan and his wife Casi arrived in Japan in the Fall of 2012 and are currently...
