We met Roxanne Daniels at Marantha Baptist Church in Okinawa, Japan in 2007. She and her husband JD were doing a great job there serving in several ministries, including the teen group. We only knew them for a short while before they had to move back to the States, but it was a blessing to see a family that was so involved in serving the Lord through their local church overseas. JD retired from the Air Force in 2008.

I came to know the Lord in 1999 while our family was stationed at Yokota Air Base, Japan. My husband JD was deployed within a month of our arrival in┬áJapan. The deployment was made easier for our children and me because my mother traveled to Japan with us. While JD was away, I met a young woman named Kristi who shared the Gospel with me and invited me to her church. The church was Yokota Baptist pastored by Steve Nutt. My family (minus my deployed husband) began to attend services; and within three weeks, my mom and I received the Lord as our Savior together on the same day. When JD returned from deployment, he started to attend with me a little reluctantly. About eight weeks later, during a missions conference, he too came to know the Lord. My daughter was saved later in the same year, and my son was saved at Yokota two years later under Pastor Warren Webster. My mom passed away just as we were leaving Japan, but we could rejoice in the assurance of her salvation and place in Heaven. I can’t imagine our lives without the Lord, and that was made possible by military┬ámissions.
