In 2023 and early 2024 we are visiting our US supporting churches (May, Nov, Jan) with plans to visit our Canadian supporting churches later in 2024 (May, Nov).

During the last half of 2020 we were scheduled to visit our US supporting churches that we had not seen since 2015. (We had visited our Canadian supporting churches in 2017.) But due to covid and Dale’s unrelated health challenges in 2020 (Dale is now doing OK), we were only able to visit a few US churches.

We visit the churches on our support team in order to report in-person about our ministry and life. We also try to visit individual supporters. Along the way we enjoy our family and find some relaxation and refreshment. We take short home assignments for only a few months at a time so we can continue our ministry in Tokyo and other countries in Asia. We’ve taken home assignments in 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2015, and 2017.

Home assignment costs are factored into our ServeBeyond ministry budget so that it does not increase or decrease in the years we take home assignments.
