Noriko And The Beanstalk
The St. Matthew team will share how God has given us magic beans (the Holy Spirit obviously) to plant seeds of faith in the hearts of the Japanese (and others) that He has brought to our church. This is a great seminar for anyone that is not native Japanese but has a heart to reach the Japanese where they are at. English only….although we’ll throw some Japanese words in there sporadically to explain some things. Bio: Rebecca served in Japan from 1996 to 2003. Now she serves as Director of International Ministry at St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Walled Lake, Michigan. She currently teaches the Beginning English and Bible Classes and works together with her amazing team to continue to do effective ministry to those that God brings to our classes. Jan has served as Assistant Director since 2013. She oversees all children’s classes from babies to Preschool, leads the Conversation and Cooking classes, and is staff liaison for the Evening classes.
