Pioneer Church Planting
FRUITS OF OUR LABOR
During their first term the Muhlings served together with a Japanese pastor and his wife to start a church in a community completely unreached with the gospel. During their second term Kent focused on language learning, completing an intermediate course of study in language school.
Immediately after the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami on 3/11/11, Kent traveled to the disaster area with one of the very first volunteer relief teams, the first of several trips into the area. He and Yuko later felt God’s call to move to the area in order to follow up recovery efforts with gospel ministry.
In 2012 they moved to Sendai, the largest city in the disaster-affected northeast region. Together with a Japanese partner, they have started Grace Center Church, and are focusing their efforts on reaching out to university students and young families.
That we would remain fervent in our personal devotion to the Lord and that our lives would display the love of Christ to others.
That our family relationships would reflect the love of Christ, and that our family life would display that love to others.
For our newly established church community, that we would grow in grace, in numbers, and in influence here in the heart of Sendai city.
That God would give us many opportunities to build friendships with unbelievers and share the gospel.
For a fruitful outreach and discipleship ministry to the nearly 80,000 university students here in Sendai.
