Doug and Miriam Bishop

(Oliver, Scarlet, Hazel and Felix)

Doug and Miriam arrived back in Japan in May 2017. They will be serving in a new area for four years. For the first two years, they will attend language school. After graduation they will work alongside a Japanese pastor in church planting and discipleship. They would like to open their home to foster children, to continue English classes as a form of outreach, and to work with another Japanese family to form a high school/college outreach. 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 four children: Oliver, Scarlet, Hazel, and Felix.

SERVING WITH Free Will Baptist International Mission IN Japan


  • Pray for God to work in the hearts of the Japanese people. Pray for a harvest!
  • Pray for Miriam’s two years in language school, that she will easily absorb what she is studying.
  • Pray for them as they work with Japanese churches. Pray that they will serve with humility, and that the Lord will show them how they can best serve alongside the local pastors.
  • Pray for their family, for our marriage, for their kids as they adjust to Japanese school, and for their family in the U.S. who will be left behind for four years.
  • Pray for the work that they left behind in Bihoro. Pray that God would continue to work in the hearts of the people there.
  • Pray that God would continue to provide the prayer and financial partners needed to keep them on the field. Thank you for being a part of this ministry!
