“It is not lost time to wait upon God!”

Hudson Taylor

June 2019: At the moment we are studying at Cornerstone and continue working on our application progress with OMF and on our Japanese skills. The two years of our training will be completed in July 2020. God willing, we will have according to our present plans a three-week orientation course with OMF in Singapore in November 2020 and after that we will go to Japan. There we will have two years of intensive language and culture training and possibly will attend a Japanese Bible school.
