<Our background & Experiences>


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].


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.
