About The Event
Topic: Me? A Missionary?
Speaker: Josh Matsumaru
How do skills in education, healthcare, aviation, construction, shipping, etc. assist in translating the Bible? There are so many ways to support Bible translators as they bring God’s Word to unreached people groups in their languages! For example, Josh, a Japanese missionary, taught sports at the secondary school campus of an international school in Papua New Guinea, while his wife taught art and helped other teachers at the primary school campus.
Come hear the story of how Josh used his gifts and professions to serve God and other missionaries in the mission field!
