Missionaries raising support with JEMS
Hi! We are Jon and Maki Robison We have spent a three year term as missionaries in Tokyo, but when we return to Japan in January we will move north to tsunami-struck Iwate prefecture right away.
Iwate is the third least Christian (by ratio) prefecture in all of Japan. Out of the almost 2,000 missionaries in Japan less than a dozen are working in Iwate, and many of them are scheduled to phase-out relief operations in the prefecture by the end of 2013.
Iwate doesn’t have an American school, so missionary families are virtually nonexistent. As our kids are dual-citizens we feel comfortable using the Japanese schools, and after visiting Iwate in February, we feel it’s a great ministry opportunity for our family!
Our goal is to plug into a community and become involved immediately in order to either help an existing church plant grow, or start a new church in an unreached community. We are currently looking for more prayer and support partners. Feel free to contact us, check out our website or check out our past prayer updates via twitter!
