Drew and Megumi have been on mission for Jesus in Japan for over 10 years. We first met in 2007 at a bible camp in Japan and we’ve been serving together ever since. We were married in 2010 and have two boys, Takumi and Nobuki. We served in various capacities and positions around Japan but eventually made our way back to America after the events of the 2011 Tsunami disaster. During our time in America, we served with Karis Church who, through a series of vision trips, sent us back to Japan to continue the mission.
Over those years, God moved us to see Tokyo in a new light. At 30 million people, it is not only the world’s largest city but the cultural heart of Japan. A unique blend of ancient traditions and modern tech marvels. Tokyo is not only a mecca of anime and nerd culture, but a culinary fan’s delight, and a marvel of public transit. Yet, Tokyo is so much more than that for us. Tokyo is where Megumi was born and raised. Our family and friends live in Tokyo. And, we first served in gospel ministry together in Tokyo. Following the counsel of our church leaders and God’s direction, we returned to this great city to become disciple-makers among the unreached people of Tokyo.
