In N.Carolina we received a warm welcome from Faith (center) & Stan DeLa Cour (not pictured). The DeLa Cours are family friends and former long-time missionaries with A2. Faith now heads missionary care for all SIM-USA.
We cannot continue our term without this transition as the cost of supporting missionaries in Japan is too burdensome for a ministry the size of Asian Access. We are excited to be SIM-Asian Access missional partners as we get to be part of a large global family impacting the world for good.
During our training meetings we met P-Nut from MN, and the McKenzie family from NC. They are the next SIM-A2 missionaries coming to Japan. We prayed with other new friends who are setting down their lives to serve around the globe. One couple in particular connected with our family. Geneva excitedly ran over each morning to see if they were awake. She soon upgraded her hair to fancy braids in the morning and received private ballet lessons. We are blessed to count new friends and mentors as part of the larger community of missions.
