Emily had the privilege of being born and raised on the mission field. At an early age she came to know Christ as her Savior and enjoyed serving the Lord in Brazil until it was time to go to college. I (Aaron) was also raised in a Christian home and was saved early in life. I had many opportunities to serve alongside my parents in our local church where I gained ministry experience. Feeling the call to missions, we both attended Bible college, and I went on to receive a Master of Divinity. Discovering that the Japanese people represent the second largest unreached people group in the world, we answered God’s call to this needy mission field. We, along with our two children, have been serving in Iwatsuki, Japan since 2019.
