With all the race issues, the murder of Mr. Floyd and all the rest, This story is a powerful testimony to the importance of listening to one another. The power of this story goes beyond race and into how we share the Gospel.

Japanese people don't contemplate belief in the ways we might expect. As a missionary to the Japanese people I always strive to understand more of their belief systems to learn how I can better present myself and the Gospel into their lives. This video takes less than 8 minutes to watch but it is a fascinating look into the Japanese mind and religious heart.

 

Associations of one thing to another are not only common but can be either harmful and unpleasant or delightful and uplifting. For example, when I see a rocky coastline with powerful waves crashing and their white foam hissing through the tide pools, I think of my mother and the many hours we spent together on the beaches of Oregon.

Why Japan - Why Now

How Can I Support You?

When I hear people ask that question I am always amazed and very glad - and humbled! To give of yourself through prayers for us or to give financial support are both sacrificial ways to express your love to the Lord. But even as I am always happy and feel humbled, I am not too surprised. Why should I be surprised to see my brothers and sisters respond to the Lord with such sacrificial love? Together we kneel before the same Lord and marvel at His sacrifice and respond to His Spirit as He leads us into ministry together to bring His Gospel to the people of Japan.

Yuka and I take our place along with all of you who through your prayers and your financial offerings seek to follow the Lord into the corner of His harvest field in Japan. Thank you for joining with us and with all the others who are making this ministry possible.

Is the Lord leading you to come to Japan? There are so many areas of need and so few people to fill those needs! Maybe you are the next missionary for Japan. The Japanese Evangelical Missionary Society (JEMS) is not simply a sending agency for missioaries. JEMS' mission is to equip you to go and serve by using your unique talents, personality and skills. JEMS staff is there to help you discover where and how the Lord is calling you and to then come alongside to assist you in following that calling.

If you are interested in either some kind of short-term mission trip or a career position, please contact Roy Toma, the Japan Director. (royt@jems.org) and he will start you on your way.
