The Jensen Family — Nagoya, Japan
Ben, Julie, and Søren Jensen are long-term missionaries preparing to join an established church-planting team in Japan’s third-largest city, Nagoya. They are going through the PCA’s missions agency, Mission to the World. MTW has had a church planting team working with the Presbyterian Church of Japan in Nagoya for over twenty years. Their team is dedicated to planting churches in neighborhoods where there are no churches. The Japanese are one of the largest unreached people groups in the world and Protestant church attendance is only 0.22% of the population in Japan. Currently, the Jensens live in Olathe, KS and are raising the rest of their support before moving to Japan. For more about MTW, please visit www.mtw.org.
