Perfect for anyone interested in missions in Japan, but might want to test the waters first. Spend a summer making new friends, engaging the culture, and learning by doing.
Whether a university student eager to see God’s work overseas, or an experienced couple or family praying for an opportunity to be involved in long-term missions, physically setting foot in Japan through a Survey Trip is still the best way to get a feel for things. We’d love for you to come and meet us.
“A survey trip helps missionaries have realistic expectations about life in that area, and it helps them know better how to prepare for the challenges they will face.” He continues, “Mostly it is to overcome an idealized view of what it means to live overseas.”Steve McKenzie, Pioneers Pre-field Coach
