“Only one life twill soon be past. Only what’s done for Christ will last.” – C.T Studd
These words ring in my ears as I think about the things that are eternal. My life is short, and there are still people who have never heard the good news of Christ. Their lives are short. And if they never hear, how can they enjoy Jesus forever?
One of the largest unreached people groups in the world: The people of Japan, where less than 1% follow Jesus.
Surprised? Maybe the concrete jungle of Tokyo isn’t the first place to come to mind when you think “unreached”. This is a place that looks very put together on the outside, but is very spiritually dark on the inside. Beautiful building structures and leading technology shine at first glance. Look inside though, and you’ll find isolation, working to death (literally), suicide, and robots that want to be seen as human. People are extremely friendly and seem successful on the outside. Look inside though, and you’ll see a depraved man who needs Christ yet, does not know who that is.
I have joined a team of church planters in Southwest Greater Tokyo to share the good news of Jesus. He loves the Japanese people more than I could even imagine. I can’t wait to see what he does through the prayers and faithfulness of his people!
Please pray for unity in my team and in our little churches, so that the people of Japan would see and hear our witness and be added to our number.
