I’ll be part of the OMF family, so in that sense I won’t be by myself. However, the question of what sort of local team I’ll be working with is what that I don’t know the answer to yet. That is something that will be worked out when I’m finished at language school.
In the long-term I hope to work alongside Japanese pastors. I strongly believe in the principle of indigenous leadership, which means that I want to mainly have a background role, equipping and encouraging Japanese Christians to establish churches, rather than heading up a church-plant myself.
