Vee Tetseo and Ai Nohara Tetseo | How the Spirit is shaping faith and mission in Okinawa and Japan today

Oct 27, 2018

Vee Tetseo, Ai Nohara Tetseo, and Graham Hill discuss how the Spirit is shaping faith and mission in Okinawa and Japan today. They also discuss (1) Okinawan church history and experience, and its response to foreign occupation, (2) Okinawan pacifism and how that is expressed in the church, (3) Okinawan theology as it identifies with the occupied, marginalized, and minoritized, and (4) recognizing the uniqueness and importance of Okinawan culture, language, and identity today.

Vee Tetseo and Ai Nohara Tetseo are married, and they serve Jesus in Okinawa. Vee is a missionary from Nagaland, India, and Ai is a native of Okinawa. They pastor a church together, and love seeing Okinawans experience life and faith in Jesus Christ. Vee is the General Secretary of the Asia Pacific Baptist Federation. The Asia Pacific Baptist Federation represents almost 60 Baptist denominations from 20 different countries, encompassing almost 30,000 congregations, with more than 5 million baptized believers.
