Our Asia Impact Team is unable to travel to any country in Asia at this time due to the pandemic. But we have not been waiting for the situation to change.  First, developments in two countries closed to missionary visas could lead to working with leaders evangelizing many unreached people groups in more than 6 countries. For us this means a changing role, approach, and strategy to equip them. Second, we continue to pray for Asia and grow a burden for so many who need Christ. Third, we are studying Church Planting and Disciple Making Movements together to prepare us to work more closely in equipping indigenous workers and leaders.


Another road trip will take Elaine and John to Ohio and Kentucky and passing through Indiana. The schedules are still being finalized but we will be visiting two churches this August. Please pray for our presentations.

  • August 07-08 Berean Baptist Church, Mansfield, OH
  • August 14-15 First Baptist Church of Greenhills, Cincinnati, OH 

And please come drop in if you are nearby, we would love to see you in person. We will also be visiting some friends and family on this trip. We are hitting the road visiting more churches we missed in 2020. We would welcome an invite to visit your church this fall or in 2022.  Just drop us a note.


Elaine has a full schedule each month that basically does not let up for the summer. She is grateful that her students continue to enjoy Bible study and that they are finding the God of blessing due to her connecting with them. Elaine maybe joining a local women’s Bible study when it starts up in the fall. She is also anticipating the start of a Japanese cooking class in the fall.
