Robert and Lisa StewartRobert and Lisa Stewart

Robert and Lisa Stewart, with their children William and Isabel, are a part of the MTW church-planting work in Japan. Robert joined MTW in 1992, working with the MTW Chiba team’s school for missionary children. He met Lisa when she came to Japan to teach at teh school for two years. They married in October 2002 and returned to Japan together with Wiliam in 2004. Robert has served as the school’s principal and as the MTW Chiba team’s assistant team leader. Lisa has been involved in outreach to moms wtih young children.

Robert and Lisa’s experience uniquely gifted them to join a new MTW church-planting team in Shin-Urayasum, japan. the Stewarts are looking forward to moving into a new situation that will further encourage them to learn Japanese, trust God with daily challenges and needs, and do something that is both hard and exciting. Working as assistant church planters, they are eager to see a church raised up in a town where there are no churches.

Pray that God would call many people in Shin-Uraysau to Himself. “I will call them my people who were not my people, and her beloved, who was not beloved.” Romans 9:25
