I am a second-generation missionary returning to Japan. I know the Japanese language well. My parents are Henry and Celeste Ward, who have been ministering to the Japanese since 1991. God has worked in my life through my parents and other Christian models to help me arrive at this point of being a missionary to the Japanese. As you will read later in my testimony, I have had a burden for Japan for a long time, but I had not realized until recently that God wants me to go! It is like a dream come true!
