Andy and Junko Meeko serve with World Venture in Japan

Junko was born and bred in Japan and was serving long before meeting Andy. The youngest son of missionaries to Japan, Andy couldn’t resist God’s call, despite vowing to never be a missionary.

Together, they believe Japan will be reached by average Japanese Christians. Believers in Japan can do amazing things if they are given a little assistance. They train people as community caregivers reaching the depressed, anxious, and suicidal, and to share the life-transforming gospel of Jesus Christ.

Japan is one of the most gospel-resistant nations in the world, but there is amazing change. If one of their trainees shares Christ with two people, it’s likely one will trust Jesus!
