Latest Prayer Points

Pray for those new missionaries studying Japanese full-time at the moment: Sophia, Rosa and Kaki. It’s around now that the difficulty really starts to increase!

Rita Feldt has gone back to Germany for six months deputation. Jill Smith will be pastoring Ishiyama church while Rita is away, and asks for prayer for “wisdom and understanding, grace and love, humility and good relationships.”

Also at this year’s field conference, we discussed our relationship with the SFDK, the network of Japanese churches we have planted. We want to find the best way to work together in partnership. We are still deciding the details and need to do so consultation with them, so please pray for God’s wisdom and direction.

Leading our Organisation

We interviewed our new Field Leaders, Chungkyu and Eonmee Lee, to find out what it means to lead WEC Japan.


1. Chungkyu, what’s the job of a Field Leader?  

When I think of the job of a Field Leader, a few things come to my mind.  Firstly, to lead the Field to draw closer to God.  I want to encourage our Field to seek God, to know God more, and to grow in Him, both individually and as a body of Christ.

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.

“Why bother translating the Bible into sign language?” I asked the man at the conference booth. “Surely Deaf people can read?”


Why Study Theology in Japan?

To  learn the history of the church is to know how God has worked I can't  believe  how  quickly  the  time  has  gone  by.  Sewon  and  I  came  to  reformedtheological seminary last year February to spend sabbatical year. I thought that one yearis not short period. I could study all  things I want to know. However, I  have just twomonths left. I have to start preparing to return to my ministry felid. To write this article isso a good chance to look back my time in this school.
