Michael has served in multiple capacities during his station in Okinawa. Since the start of the new year Michael has served as Pillar Church of Okinawa’s new elder.
Michael and Halley Hewitt actually don’t remember where or when they first met but they knew it happened probably at a coffee shop surrounded by mutual friends from church. Halley was attending college. Michael had just graduated high school and joined the Marine Corps.
Year down the road, they remained friends and then started dating. During that time, they served together on the hospitality team as well as teaching in the church’s elementary and middle school ministries. After one year of dating, they got married and submitted the reenlistment package for Okinawa.
They seriously love Okinawa living, especially the unique coffee culture here on this little island!
