Since the moment Kalyna and I met at a missions college, we have been dedicated to following God’s call to ministry and spreading His Gospel around the world.
For the past 8 years, we have been pastors at Vibrant Life Assembly of God in Ellendale, MN. We have loved serving at this wonderful church, but have always known God would one day call us back into overseas missions and we are thrilled that the time is now!
God has been filling our hearts with a passion and love for the country and people of Japan, a nation that appears to be thriving by worldly standards, but which is in almost total spiritual darkness.
Of the more than 125 million people in Japan, less than 1% are Christians. Japan is the 2nd least reached country in the world. Japan once had a flourishing Christian population, but now many churches are closing due to dwindling numbers. It breaks our hearts to know so many millions of people are living their lives without ever hearing the name of Jesus.
Our mission is to be a light in that spiritual darkness and to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Osaka, Japan through evangelism and church planting. We believe God is going to bring revival throughout the Land of the Rising Sun.
We are making plans to move our whole family (yes, all seven of us!) to Osaka, Japan, a city of over 20 million people, where we plan to share the Gospel and begin a church planting movement to bring the salvation of Christ to this lost nation.
Please join us in prayer as we embark on our journey of raising support. We know God has a great love for the people of Japan and now is the time to bring the Gospel to His children!
Patrick and Kalyna were part of a group of 16 AGWM missionary families approved this year and commissioned at Prayer and Fasting Retreat in September.
