Giving Hope to the Japanese People - Episode 29


Tom and Amy McVicker love Jesus and they love the people of Japan. For those reasons, soon they will be heading to Japan to bring the hope of Christ to the Japanese people.

Today, Tom and Amy share their journey and their heart. You will learn how Christ called them to missions. They will also share some of their joys and frustrations with building a support team.
