Bio – Tom & Robin Miyakawa
Tom & Robin Miyakawa
Ministry Essentials Associate Staff
Tom and Robin came to MEI as “second career missionaries” after taking a one-year assignment with Grace International School in Chiang Mai, Thailand to “check out” the possibility of missions full time. When they felt the Lord calling them to a longer-term commitment with Grace, MEI was a great partner to help them care for missionary kids and their families. While in Thailand, Tom taught math and PE, coached basketball, and mentored many third culture kids. Robin focused on music and theater with the Grace students and built relationships with women and families.
Tom and Robin are now in a season of lay ministry in the States while working in the secular world. Tom still mentors many former Grace students and is heavily involved in men’s ministry and evangelism. Robin leads a support group of former missionary women, co-leads women’s Bible studies, and mentors young moms. They look forward to future partnerships with MEI projects.
