Celebrate God's Faithfulness

Join Ruth's list to get a replay of her "Zoom launch party" where we remember God's faithfulness to Ruth and celebrate the publication of this new book!

As she completed 42 years as a missionary-pastor in Japan with OMF International, friends urged Ruth to write her story. So she prayerfully wrote her memoir in Japanese as a gift to her friends and the churches she had served.

Now, after five years in Canada, Ruth has translated her memoir into English. The print book became available in April 2021, with the ebook following closely behind. Soon, her audiobook will appear everywhere.
