Serving in Japan | Acct # 400448

PERSONAL NOTE

When I was only thirteen years old God put a love for Japan on my heart. The culture had always fascinated me greatly, it was so bright and colorful yet so peaceful and humble at the same time. I had no clue as to how a culture could exhibit both without one overpowering the other. For the longest time I had only wanted to go for fun and only for a week as a tourist. But God had other plans for my life. I vividly remember the day that God changed the trajectory of my heart.

It was a normal day like any other, it was Sunday and I had tons of homework to finish. I was walking around to get something for the homework that I had been working on when right before I walked into the next room, I heard a voice in my head. Now that might seem a little crazy at only thirteen years old, but this voice was as clear as day. The words God said to me where “Laura, you’re going to go to Japan as a missionary.” I was completely caught off guard and froze right where I was standing. I could not believe what I had heard God say directly to me. But I still responded, “Ok God, I will go.” Ever since that day I have been working towards the goal God would have for me, to go to Japan.

I was accepted on the twelfth of January by the Chiba AO team to come join their ministry in Japan. I will be going over to Japan to do the exact thing that God had called me to do five years ago. I will be primarily teaching at Covenant Community School International (CCSI) in Chiba, Japan, full time. There I will form relationships with students, become a part of the Chiba AO team, and become a part of the church community in Japan. That means I get to teach and hang out with kids as a job! YES PLEASE! I am so elated to go to Japan on August 25th for 11 months to begin my journey with God in Japan. But to do that I am going to need people to be apart of my team, support, and prayer wise.

The cost to serve in Japan is around $18,143. This amount covers travel, ministry and living expenses for the ministry in Japan. As I mentioned, I need to develop a team of partners in order to join AO’s ministry to Japan. If you would like to join this ministry to Japan, simply fill out the pledge card attached to this page and mail it with your donation to the P.O. Box address listed on the pledge card. All tax-deductible donations should be made payable to Mission to the World and should include my MTW ministry account number (400448) in the memo line of the check. You can also give online by making a donation at https://www.mtw.org/missionaries. Thank you in advance for your time, support, and prayer!

I would love for you to be a part of my Team! This is an exciting opportunity for me to grow in my own understanding of God’s kingdom as I share the gospel with children and families in Japan. Please consider any way that you are able to contribute to this opportunity. In the next few weeks, I will contact you to hear your thoughts and share with you any more information you are interested in hearing. I look forward to talking to you soon!
