Robert, Roberta, Joseph, and Benjamin Adair
Serving in Japan
From: United States of America
Who we are:Roberta was born in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania. After graduating from Penn State University she served for three years in Kosovo with The Christian & Missionary Alliance. After completing her term she enrolled in Wheaton College for additional studies in missions. Robert was raised in Texas and is a graduate of Texas A&M University. From 2005-2009 he served in southern Japan with Asian Access. Like Roberta, he returned to the States to study missions at Wheaton College in 2009, which is where their paths converged.
After meeting, dating and getting married, Robert and Roberta discerned that God was leading them back to Japan with Asian Access. They are currently in Japan through a strategic partnership between Asian Access and SIM designed to leverage the strengths of both agencies to more effectively reach Japanese people and strengthen the Japanese church.
What we do:Robert and Roberta are serving with Church Multiplication Teams in the Tohoku region of Japan (northern Japan). Their ministry consists of coming along side an existing Japanese church and assisting them in reaching an area where a church does not currently exist. Specific activities include language study, relational evangelism, teaching English, discipleship, coaching, and doing whatever else is necessary to help build the church in Japan.
They arrived in Japan in March of 2012 and are partnering with Shiogama Bible Baptist Church. They are currently praying about helping the church plant a new congregation in a suburb of Sendai that does not have a church.
