Munakata City’s population of ~95,000 is nestled between two large metropolises, Fukuoka and Kitakyushu, each with about 1.3 million people. Munakata is a quiet area, with lots of rice farming and community spirit. We love Munakata and its people!
The Lord has been gracious to us and to this city, by providing a means for anyone in Munakata to come to know of the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Our home church here in Munakata is Munakata Bethel Christian Center, pastored by Nils and Andrea Olson. The Olsons have lived in Japan for over 34 years and continue to work diligently in this amazing harvest field.
Please pray for the Olsons and for the Xaviers to continue to build relationships, and for a future that is filled with Munakata Christians!
