From California to Japan: Kat's Stories - Episode 12

This is Part 1 of our interview with Kat Borba, a teacher, supporter of overseas missions, and mother of three. In her mid twenties, she and her husband became missionaries to Sapporo, Japan, landing four weeks before the 9.1 earthquake and tsunami hit Japan many miles south of them. This event sparked a great need for humanitarian service, and she and her husband were able to give support through their Japanese church. Throughout the years, Kat and her husband worked in their local Japanese church college ministry, English teaching, and mothering groups. Kat first struggled with feeling incompetent without basic literacy in Japan, but she relished the bond and support from other foreign missionaries. She was surprised that in Japan she was not as extroverted as she thought, and she found new ways to feel refreshed and reenergized.
