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.

Where Are They Now?

Where are they Now?

Two former WEC Japan workers from Australia, and one from New Zealand, update us on life after Japan.



Called from Australia, to be Changed!

Here we can hear from a past missionary to Japan why the Lord called him there.



A Dream into a Reality - Kusatsu Church

Kusatsu Church stands like any other house on the side of a busy street in Japan, with many people passing by every day. The Gaub family has been serving there for almost 20 years and, together with other missionaries and Japanese workers have seen the church go through many changes, challenges and buildings.

This year brings another challenge, as from July the building will be demolished and a new church building will be built at the same site.


Endings. Beginnings

March in Japan; it’s a time of many endings and with April comes new beginnings.

The school year finishes, so it’s a time of exams, graduation ceremonies - from the littlest of children through to post graduate students. So as people all over Japan look to the future, we too as WEC Japan find ourselves also looking to the future.


New Missionaries with Big Vision

We are excited that God is sending many new missionaries to Japan! Eunjeong and Jaenbaeg Lim arrived in Japan on September 25th 2009, sent to us from Onnuri Church in Seoul Korea.

Jaenbaeg and Eunjeong are living in Hikone, ShigaKen and are working with Megumi Church.

At the moment, most of their day is spent fulfilling the difficult task of learning Japanese, but they have also had many opportunities to share about God with their Japanese teachers, neighbors and people they meet every day.
