We were able to see a new church plant in Osaka, Japan. The name of the church is called mustard seed church. Please pray for them as they reach out to millions of unsaved Japanese in the Osaka and Kobe area.
Thank you for praying and supporting the teams going to Japan as two new house churches have developed in the Sano City area.
Please pray for the teams that are planning to go this year that the spirit of God would move amongst them and that millions would be saved. We are now using a movie that you can download from the website called The Story that can be translated into many languages. This will enable you to share the Gospel any place, anytime around the globe. We have now ordered close to 10,000 Bible Tracts in English and $10,000 Bible Tracts in Japanese. We hope to get them into peoples’ hands this summer. It will be the first and possibly only time they have a chance to hear Christ.
We are planning to re-develop a surfing ministry in Japan particularly in the Kanagawa Prefecture area. We are in the process of making an anime movie that will address the plague of suicide in Japan. No one has been able to slow down the pace of suicide in Japan. Let’s let God do it.
So we hope to create the movie, and get permission from the train corporations and billboard advertisements in major cities to show the short 5 minute which will have a hotline communication center.
One short term mission team returned home to America and is now planning to go longer. A married couple planning to quit their jobs and commit to a 3 year term in Japan. Please pray for Roman and Tiana.
We’ve recently received an update about new church-planting activities that our partner missionaries Kevin & Nozomi West are involved in. Please check out their information at: http://kevinandnozomi.wordpress.com/2012/12/
