Doug and Miriam arrived back in Japan in June 2022. They, along with their team, will be launching New Life Church just outside Sapporo, Japan within the next year. New Life Church is located in a residential area with lots of young families. Pray that the Lord would draw many to himself, and that they would find New Life in Christ!
Doug grew up as a missionary kid in Japan and is fluent in Japanese. Miriam has had a deep desire since middle school to serve Christ in full-time missions. The Bishops have seven children: Oliver, Scarlet, Hazel, Felix, Arthur, Linus, and Daisy.
