In the early 1950s, a group from Madison College traveled to Japan to begin a medical ministry training work at Mount Akagi. In 1978, three families accepted the call from Eden Valley in Colorado to continue this work in central Japan. English schools operated by U.S. and Canadian student missionaries in nearby communities supported the work. For some time an academy in Okinawa also functioned as part of the project. The bakery these families began is still going, reaching nearby cities with unique products such as sprouted wheat burger buns, walnut raisin bread, black sesame crackers, and a variety of other baked goods.
Now, as a part of GMI, it’s a great desire to also see the gospel reach Japan through the use of electronic media. Using social media, websites, videos, email newsletters and mainly with a TV project called Japan Family TV.
