We know that choosing to support a mission work is a big decision. It involves trust between both you and the one working in the field. By giving to this work, you aren’t just supporting us but are actually partnering with us in the work, and receive credit for the fruit it produces (Phil. 4:14-17). We have full confidence that God will supply our every need to be fruitful for his kingdom, and we are thankful for you considering being a part of that.
Below is a table showing our basic support needs for the work in Japan. The first goal is our bare-bones essential amount – what we need to be able to get our work visa. While it would allow us to make ends meet, we would have no savings, and Leslie would need to take on extra work (i.e. English teaching jobs) once in Japan. Meeting the full goal amount would allow us to be more responsible financially with a proper savings, and help us focus more readily on the work in Matsudo. Put simply, we need the first amount to get to Japan, we need the second amount to live in Japan.
As progress is made these amounts will be quickly updated, so check back for updated totals. If you have any questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to contact us here.

How To Support Our Work
There are two methods of supporting our work: recurring (continual) support and one-time donations. In order to pledge recurring support for our work, please fill out the form below. If you would like to give a one-time donation, please scroll to the bottom of this page to visit our GoFundMe page with more information.
The widget below allows you to easily and securely donate to our one-time support fund. These funds will only be used to help us pay for our upfront costs for the move back to Japan, such as shipping costs, a deposit for an apartment in Japan, and things of this nature. We will not withdraw any funds unless and until we have received the necessary monthly support and our visa to work in Japan. In the event that God sees fit not to open this door to us, we will refund all donations. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
