Blessed to be raised in a home where church fellowship was important, Linda Wixon came to saving faith in Jesus Christ at a young age. She later received her undergraduate degree in education from Belhaven College, and a graduate degree in education from Reformed Theological Seminary. Linda has worked as an elementary classroom teacher and in software development and training.
Linda has been a member of the Nagoya, Japan Church-Planting Team since August 1998. Her focus was teaching missionary children in a new Christian school that was started by the MTW church-planting team and a Southern Baptist missionary. After being in Japan as a short-term missionary for three years, Linda was approved to return to Japan as a career missionary, serving in the growing school. After prayerful consideration, Linda felt that it was time to leave the school and was asked to return to Japan with the Nagoya Church Planting Team. In the summer of 2007, Linda returned to Japan and use her teaching skills in areas of service directly related to church planting.
Please pray that Linda’s focus will remain on Jesus and that God will use her in His kingdom’s work.
