Leslie and Sara Taylor met at Freed- Hardeman University in 2004 and have been married for 14 years. Leslie holds a B.A. in Communication and an M.A. in Ministry from Freed-Hardeman University. Sara holds a B.A. in Business Administration, and aside from homemaking and homeschooling, also works as a freelance proofreader. Leslie enjoys theology & philosophy, and Christian apologetics. Sara enjoys reading, exercise, and good coffee. The Taylor family mission is to encourage and increase God’s Kingdom in Japan. We will carry out our mission locally with the Matsudo Church of Christ in Chiba Prefecture, in partnership with the La Grange Church of Christ in Texas (our sponsoring congregation in the United States). Our heart’s desire is to see our family be a force for God’s Kingdom in Japan. We desire to make disciples and encourage them to be dedicated to the cause of the Kingdom. We believe that God is at work even in a place as challenging as Japan – that God is drawing people to himself even here – and we want to be humble participants in that work. We pray that the relationships we build and efforts we participate in will ultimately serve our main mission: to encourage and increase God’s Kingdom in Japan. • Japan has a population of over 126 million people • Only about 1% of the Japanese population identifies as Christian (this includes Christianity of any form) • The actual, active percentage of Christians is much less – likely less than 0.5% • Many churches consist of only a few members • Between 50% to 80% of the population practices some form of Buddhism and/or Shintoism • Many Japanese people participate in ancestor worship, including shrines in their own homes Leslie is scheduled to be with us at the September 10, 2023 PM service.
