Michelle, from Singapore, has been serving with OM Japan in Kanazawa since February 2013. Despite freezing temperatures and snow most of the time, ministry with Café Hope has been both challenging and exciting.

“The cafe team of four [from Denmark, South Africa and Norway] has been working very well, taking up different responsibilities, helping and encouraging one another despite the heavy workload,” reported Michelle. “Now that I am here, I have been observing and helping out in some of the ministries. Many of the things are new to me, as my vocational background is in education.
