Ásia leste

The people of Ásia leste desperately need to know the future and hope that Jesus offers.

One man, Mr S, was the only believer in his village for all his adult life, until God led our workers to live there. Now three of his life-long friends join us regularly on Sundays: though they are slow to open up, we can see God at work in their lives, and we believe that they are on their way to becoming fishers of men.

Truth is understood to be relative rather than absolute, and many people participate in childhood Shinto blessing rituals, then have a Christian-style wedding and a Buddhist funeral. Those looking for clearer answers in life have often been deceived by cults, and now there is a widespread feeling that ‘religion is dangerous’. There are no legal restrictions on sharing the gospel in Japan, but in this confused spiritual atmosphere, much prayer is needed for breakthrough: the church is small, and many rural towns and villages have no contact with faith-filled Christians. 

Who do we serve in East Asia?

Our focus is on the people living in rural areas of the Izu Peninsula in Japan.  

How do we serve?

We minister to them through local church ministry, church planting, English & Bible clubs for children, evangelism and discipleship, and environmental projects. 

What is our vision for East Asia?

Our vision is to engage the Japanese and worldwide church in prayer and action, and work together to see God’s kingdom established in the least-reached rural areas of Japan.

In addition to seeking to strengthen existing ministries, we are actively praying about expansion into new areas and countries.
