Kanon was saved as a teenager and felt calling him into missions soon after getting saved. A couple of years later at 21 years old, he began taking classes at the Our Generation Training Center at Vision Baptist Church. He met his wife Nancy there, and after finishing classes and getting engaged he spent six months in Dalian, China doing a six-month internship for on-the-field training. When he came back to the states in the fall of 2015 he and Nancy were married and began deputation.
Kanon and Nancy arrived in China after finishing their deputation at the beginning of 2018. They spent approximately 2 years in China learning the language and serving in an underground church. In 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic they were stuck outside of China. While waiting for the doors to open to return back to China, they spent 9 months serving in Taiwan and Singapore. They are currently back in the states working on paperwork to hopefully be allowed to return to China by the end of 2021.
