Patrick and Ellen are full-time missionaries to Japan. They are passionate to see Japanese people know the love of Christ. They have been involved with CSHOP unofficially before it existed some 9 years ago, but officially since 2013. Before they first met, eight years ago in a prayer meeting on the Texas A&M campus, they both felt a strong call to the Japanese people. Patrick grew up as a missionary kid over the course of 18 years (speaks fluent Japanese), and Ellen served in Japan for three months. They are excited to be serving the Lord with OMF international in Japan at a young church plant in the city of Yokohama called “Connect Church” that meets in a community center.
