Ministry Focus: Joel is a global worker in Ome, Tokyo, Japan. Joel felt a strong call to missions when he attended Master’s College and Seminary. He has a passion for working with children and youth, and to see how God works in and through each of them. Joel is currently serving at a church called Grace Christian Fellowship. Joel teaches at the international Christian school, that is run by the church. He teaches grade one and grade six classes. Outside of his teaching at the school, Joel does street evangelism with a group of young adults and helps run a children’s outreach program called Operation Safe. Its purpose is to not only spread the gospel, but to also help children mentally recover from the trauma of natural disasters by sharing the gospel and having fun with them.
- Pray that God would continue to put more outreach ideas and opportunities in Joel’s path.
- Pray for rest in the busyness of Japan.
- Pray that Joel’s Japanese lessons would be fruitful and that he will learn the language quickly.
- Pray that Joel will remain healthy and would not fall to sickness
