Our Family of 6
We were married in Michigan at Cornerstone Church where we attended and served at for almost 7 years. Ben joined the staff as the intern director, was ordained a pastor, and finished his time there as the Youth Pastor. During this time Debbie became a Licensed Social Worker and helped many children and families with her services while also being very involved at church.
While in Michigan the Lord blessed us with two beautiful girls, Isabella and Evelyn. Since moving to Japan we have been blessed with our third daughter, Eliana, and now Debbie is pregnant with our 4th!
Japan - 日本
As expected, life is much different here than in the United States. We've both focused a lot on language study and are gradually learning Japanese. A big focus of PAZ is discipleship and we are both being discipled and actively discipling others here in Japan. We lead a church Family Group in our home. We help with preaching, church announcements, kids ministry, worship team, and a variety of different things.
PAZ (which means "peace" in Portuguese) was founded by Debbie's uncle about 40 years ago in the amazon basin of Brazil. We felt God leading us to join PAZ and their vision of seeing 100,000 churches planted. Our hope is to run with this vision and see churches multiplied in Japan and throughout the world.
