GRIMES, Iowa—Maranatha Baptist Church has ordained Andrew Gonnerman. He and his wife, Janae, ministered in Japan for 15 months and now plan to return as full-time missionaries. Maranatha Baptist says it is excited and privileged to launch the Gonnermans into ministry.

Andrew says, “Through Baptist Mid-Missions, we are working with other missionaries and Japanese churches to develop new methods of sharing [Christ]. . . . We want others to learn about Japan, how God is currently working, and consider what they can do to take part.”
