Phil and Debbie Melton had served in Japan with EBM since the 1980s. They serve three churches in the cities of Seki, Kani, and Sakaohogi, and have been working on the completion of Camp Raphayada, a 120-person Christian camp facility in Mugi Cho. Their ministry is expanding annually, and they are seeing individuals follow Jesus with some committing to serve him in full-time ministry. Phil and Debbie have six children and eight grandchildren. After over 30 years as missionaries they are now serving with IBM Global.
Way to Pray: Pray for the Meltons as they resume different ministries that have been put on hold over the past few years. Debbie's mom has Parkinsons, please pray for her mother to feel God's peace and pray for Debbie as she cares for her from afar. Please pray for Phil and Debbie as they plan to go on furlough in early 2023.
