A Japanese Christmas?

by Matthew Cummings

God at Asiacon

I had expected to enjoy my first time at Asiacon, but in fact it surpassed my expectations. The theme was Experiencing the Presence and Power of God. Meeting fellow workers over mealtimes and getting a sense of God working in different countries through their evening presentations, achieved this. It was also a special opportunity to worship together and receive prayer, Bible teaching, wise counsel, and training.


Japan Needs Prayer!

For this article, we interviewed our worker Jaenbaeg about his vision for Japan and the prayer needs here.


- Jaenbaeg, why don’t you start with telling us a bit about your work here.

Jaenbaeg: First my work in Japan is to pray; pray for this nation, pray for local people, and pray for God’s work in this nation. To pray for community, and pray for christian churches. That is my priority of working in Japan.

- Are you church planting?
