Latest Prayer Points

On November 24th we will hold a World Mission Day for our network of churches. Please pray Japanese Christians are open to God’s call to serve Him overseas. Pray too churches and pastors are convinced of God’s heart for the nations, and their part in praying, giving and sending.

Jaehyun and Sewon Chois and Jaenbaeg Lim are in Thailand at a WEC leaders training conference. Pray for them to be refreshed and ready to share and practice what they’re learnt when they return.

Japan Revisited

These days, the length of time that long-term missionaries stay in a country is getting shorter. Changes of placement or career are more common than in the past. That is why it’s really special to welcome back past missionaries who served in Japan for 30-plus years. This month Richard Owens explains the purpose of his recent trip to revisit the land he worked in, married in, raised his three children in, and made many friends in. His daughter Edi continues to work with us here.
