Ray and Shelley Kwan

IBC – Japan

Ray decided that he wanted to become a missionary in 2002 after coming back from his first of what would eventually be nine short term trips to Japan. Shelley grew up in a Japanese American church, taught English in Japan for two years, and has gone on four short term trips of her own to Japan. IBC sent out Ray and Shelley to Japan in July 2014. The five-year plan for the Kwans in Japan will involve two years of language school and integration into Hatta Nishi Christ Church in Osaka and the Japanese culture. Their goals involve developing skills to effectively make disciples in Japan.
