Apostle Kisuke Sekine from Japan was the first Asian apostle, ordained at World Conference in 1980. He was a courageous pioneer on our journey to be an international church. The presenters Phil and Andrew both knew him personally and worked with him. They tell on his deep Christian commitment in an Asian context. He faced racism and misunderstanding in the church, but to those who understood and knew him he was a capable and very loving brother in Christ. His wife, Sister Saku, was also an amazing disciple. Together they also founded and led Zion Kindergarten in Okinawa that continues today. Both were insightful child centered educators.
