SERVING IN: United States, North America
For Ten Years Mike, His wife, Seira, and His courageous little band of blessings (Keido, Kento, Kairo, Kenya, and Kiera*Kiwi*) Stood to proclaim the love of God to the Japanese in Osaka, and then through a church planting effort in the Center of Kyoto City in Japan.
Kyoto was not an easy mission field. In fact, Kyoto is a city known as the hardest mission field outside of the Middle East. This is a city that carries the moniker, “The Missionaries Graveyard.” It is a city where it is said that “Son of Satan” resides.
While Kyoto is a spiritually dark stronghold, the Wogsland’s saw the God of the Impossible do impossible things in that Japanese lives were changed and souls were secured for eternity.
But then God called Mike and Seira back to America because God wanted to draw Mike and Seira into a deeper relationship of Love called Discipleship. This relationship took three years to blossom and now Mike and Seira feel God calling them to share this amazing revelation with others!
They see it as their mission to evangelize those in the Kingdom of God, not with the message of salvation, but with the urgency of obeying God today – which is activated love! This new expression of their ministry extends to Japan, America and to all those who are in the Bride of Christ.
Mike and Seira have established a growing proclamation of what God has taught them along the way called Translating Love. Translating Love is about fulfilling the Great Commission by teaching those in the Kingdom of God what makes a disciple.
A Disciple is a learner who learns to Think Like Him, Speak Like Him, Listen Like Him, and Obey Him, and in this way we will learn to Love Like Him and this will allow us to fulfill the entirety of the Law which is to Love God with all of our hearts, souls, minds, and strength, and to love our neighbors as ourselves.
We’d love for you to join us on this incredible journey. Please come with us as we are together Translating Love.
Mike is striving to see this mission fulfilled by writing books, hosting a youtube channel, speaking at churches, in schools and universities, and in conferences where he teaches on helping people in discipleship by Translating God’s Love. He also assists a local church as a full-time volunteer Missions and Outreach Director and simultaneously helping out on the Globe International Member Care Team. And of course, he always has time to meet one on one to disciple others.
