The purpose of our existence is to bear fruit; this brings glory to our Father. BUT bearing fruit is NOT our job.


Other than his origins, one of the first things we learn about Jesus is revealed immediately after his baptism. He came up out of the water and . . .

The “Christian life” can be summarized into just a few statements:

2 Peter 2:1-22  This entire chapter reveals the evils of false prophets and not only the danger they present to all of us in the Church, but also God's anger toward them.

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. ( and he will start you on your way.
