Latest Prayer Points

Thanks for praying for our Christmas events! Some 20 students came to the KGK one in Kyoto, including a couple of non-believers.  One student shared the Christmas message and another gave a testimony of his recent salvation.  The whole meeting was wrapped up with a warm hot-pot (nabe) dinner.  Tracts were given out to those who attended.  Do pray for the salvation of these students.

Pray for God`s leading for making a field strategy under our new field vision, that He would give us proper strategy for effective ministry, and might show us future possible church planting areas.

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.


Hanging Onto God's Promises

This article is about my experiences in going to 'AsiaCon', WEC's regional Asia conference in October 2009, and what God taught me there.

I have been working in Otsu city, a rural area of Japan, population 320,000, 25 minutes by train outside of Kyoto city the old capital of Japan. It is mainly residential, with most of the working population in our area travelling into the bigger cities of Kyoto and Osaka for their work.


New Term, New Place, New Ministry

WEC Japan welcomes back one of our workers, SeongJae Yu from five months furlough and into a new stage of multiteam ministry.

Earlier this year as WEC Japan refocused its vision, multi-team involvement was seen as important. That is, to be a part of multiple ministry teams in different locations. This month’s Seeds of Grace will take a look at the ministries SeongJae is involved in.

SOG: SeongJae, we are aware you are ministering as a part of WEC Japan’s multi-team vision. Can you tell us a little bit about what teams you are involved in?
