While in the Navy, Marlin became interested in doing mission work in Japan. After discharge and return to the U.S. in the early 1960’s, he met Jean at Pepperdine University. They returned to Japan in 1975 to work with the Ibaraki Christian College.
They were asked to work in Tomobe, Ibaraki, to re-establish the church in that community. They have worked with this congregation since 1986. Additionally they work with the Hitachi Christian Camp.
The Park Avenue congregation collects and disburses support for the Rays as well as offering prayer and spiritual support.
