HOME ASSIGNMENTS: VISITS TO OUR SUPPORT TEAM
During home assignments we visit the churches on our support team in order to report about our ministry and life. We also try to visit individual supporters. Along the way we enjoy our family and find some relaxation and refreshment. We usually take short home assignments for only a few months so we are not away from our ministry in Tokyo for too long at one time. We’ve taken home assignments in 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2015, and 2017.
We took a 6-month home assignment based in Maine during the last half of 2020. But due to covid-19 and Dale’s health challenges that year, we were only able to “visit” a few our our support team churches. We are hoping to “re-do” that US home assignment in the spring and early summer of 2022.

Our EFCCM ministry budget includes home assignment costs so there is no need for our support team to increase or decrease donations during our home assignments.
