Building Blocks Behind a Furlough

At any point, a few of our missionaries are usually absent from Japan because they are ‘taking a furlough’ back in their home country. What does this involve for them?

World Missions Day 2010

Last month we enjoyed our annual World Missions Day held at our headquarters. This day is all about building up awareness for world missions, a chance to catch up on news of Japanese overseas missionaries and a time to pray for mission work all over the world.


This year we were blessed with a guest speaker from WEC Korea, Mr. Byong Kook, who gave a challenge for the Japanese churches to start sending out more missionaries to other countries.

Japanese Summer Life

August in Japan symbolizes many things. For school kids it’s about school holidays, beaches and bbqs, for the working masses a few days off work to return to the family home for Obon [festival of the dead].

Then there are the firework festivals lighting up the summer nights, and it wouldn’t be August without watermelon to cool down.

For many of the missionaries here, the second half of August is a chance for a break, as church ministries take a few slower weeks. Of course, to get to the holidays one had to survive the fun and sun of the WEC summer camps [pic].
