Why are we in Japan?Japan is a country of 126 million people with less than 1% knowing Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. 4,500 people will die in Japan today and enter eternal separation from God. These figures break our hearts, along with that of our loving Heavenly Father, and we have been called to take the Gospel to the Japanese people.

Modern Japanese are adrift on a sea of rapid social change, and society offers little hope. The suicide rate in Japan is the highest of any industrial nation. Alcoholism is so prevalent that it is the norm. Families are increasingly dysfunctional, with emotional and physical abuse on the rise each year. Traditional values and religion fail to answer the questions modern Japanese are asking about their own existence. The majority of Japanese young people believe they have little chance for happiness in life.

In other words, Japan is ready for Jesus!
