Eric and Sue are serving in Japan to make disciples. Sue was initially supported by Fourth as a single missionary in Japan since 1988; in 2001 Eric and Sue moved to Japan as a couple and have been supported by Fourth ever since. God has called their family to live in the area that was devastated by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. They are sharing the love of Christ and making disciples. One of their main roles is directing the Nozomi Project, which is a social enterprise offering hope and employment to women who are making jewelry out of broken pottery left in the wake of the tsunami. It is a privilege to share Jesus in their community! Fourth Church has been supporting them since 2001.
