Alvarado, Vicente & Janine

missionary

Bio:

Vicente and Janine Alvarado met each oth­er while serv­ing in Tokyo in 2010. They mar­ried in 2012 in the US and are now launch­ing back out to where it all began. They will serve with PAZ Japan’s youngest church plant, Fuse Paz Church, reach­ing out to evan­ge­lize and dis­ci­ple a younger gen­er­a­tion of Japanese. Currently, only 0.4% of the pop­u­la­tion have heard and believed the Gospel. Their vision is to see Japan trans­formed by the Gospel and a vibrant com­mu­ni­ty of believ­ers emerge to trans­form their cul­ture. They recent­ly wel­comed their newest mem­ber of the team (and fam­i­ly) — Rosalyn.

Henderson, Travis & Hannah

missionary

Bio:

Travis and Hannah Henderson both knew at young ages that they want­ed to be mis­sion­ar­ies. Before they ever met, God began to pre­pare their hearts for the mis­sion field and for each oth­er. Travis longed for adven­ture in a far-off place, and Hannah want­ed a fam­i­ly to take care of and wom­en to teach what her moth­er had taught her. They have the­se things, along with their chil­dren Thymely and Hugo, in the life God has given them in the Philippines! They are now serv­ing in their two-year train­ing peri­od and are learn­ing to work with teams to accom­plish the goals of out­reach and com­mu­ni­ty devel­op­ment.
