Roland and Sandra Simmeonsson - BIMI - Retired
Roland was born in China 1935, (parents and grandparents were missionaries from Sweden), saved at the age of 12, and surrendered to God’s call at 13. He graduated from Tennessee Temple University in January 1958 and arrived in Japan with his wife Sandra six months later with one trunk, two suitcases and $40.00 cash and four supporting churches. In the ledger of our account book they have inscribed, I Samuel 7:12 “ EBENEZER…Hitherto hath the Lord helped us.” And God has been true to His promise all these years.
After language school in Tokyo, they began their work in Gamagori 1960 located in Aichi Prefecture (Central Japan). Gamagori was their home for 40 years, Gamagori B.C. was established and out of that church seven other churches have come into being. Central Japan Bible School (Presently evening classes only) and a Christian Cemetery called “Resurrection Garden”, serving several churches, are also part of their legacy. Their main thrust however, has always been church-planting, and they believe that church-planting is embodied in the Great Commission.
After 50 years in Japan, the Simeonssons moved to Hawaii in February of 2009. God opened up a door for them to be part of a Japanese Church planting ministry together with a younger Japanese couple sent out from a Baptist Church in Japan. Japanese and those of Japanese descent make up the second largest ethnic group in Hawaii. They are grateful to the many churches that make it possible for them to continue sharing the Gospel to the Japanese in their language.
