Salvation and Service Testimony

Growing up in a home where no particular faith was practiced or encouraged, most of my childhood years were spent not having any concept of who God was. Through a series of events that took place in my junior high years, I had become bitter at any concept of religion and became an aggressive atheist. I remember very vividly mocking those around me who professed faith in anything supernatural. As a public school teen with no direction in life nor any sense of moral standards, my life was headed to waste very quickly.

One night, while chatting with a community of online gaming friends, one of them began trying to witness to me. After countless times of turning him away, I reluctantly agreed to let him share the Gospel with me, succumbing to his persistence and zeal. Since I had no concept of God at the time, this young man took me through the entire story from God creating the entire universe, to the fall of man, to Christ’s death on the cross for our redemption. Despite myself being known to refuse placing faith in anything supernatural, something supernatural took place in my heart that evening. My soul was overwhelmed when I heard of this loving God Who could save me from my sins. Not being able to deny the Truth that was presented to me, it was that night as a 13-year-old teenager that I trusted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.

A year later, God had moved in the heart of my Karate instructor at the time to invite my family to a friend day at his church. Thankfully, it was a KJV, Independent, Fundamental Baptist church where I could grow in the faith. I was baptized there by immersion. Shortly after, I became an active member of their youth group. It was at my first summer teen camp that I surrendered my life to God. The second year, I surrendered to full-time ministry and to preach the Word of God for the rest of my life. That following fall in a missions conference, God gave me a specific, undeniable call to preach the Gospel in Japan when it was revealed to me that it was one of the least evangelized nations in the entire world. This call was confirmed by recommendation and counsel of my youth pastor and my late pastor.

I met my wife Danielle at Bible college. By the time I had met her, she already had a love for the Japanese culture and a heart for missions as God had already used her on the mission field in the Philippines while she was in high school. There is no doubt in my mind that she is fully persuaded that she is called to me, and thus is also called to be a missionary. There is neither any doubt in my mind that God has called my wife and I as a team to glorify God and to preach the Gospel in Japan for the rest of our lives.

Salvation and Service Testimony

I have been blessed with a good, godly heritage and have had the privilege of growing up in a Christian home. At the age of 4, I attended a Vacation Bible School where I remember a lady teaching us verses. Although I don’t remember exactly what was said, that was when my family believed I got saved; but since I did not remember much of it, I struggled with doubt for the next 4 years.

I faithfully attended Wednesday night kids class at Faith Baptist Church, and it was there I accepted Christ as my Saviour and got the surety I needed. After hearing a story where a child won her friend to the Lord, we were asked if we knew for sure that we would go to Heaven one day. I raised my hand and they took me to the side. That night, as an 8-year-old child, I prayed and asked Jesus to come into my heart and take me to Heaven one day. I was baptized by immersion shortly after to show outwardly what had happened inwardly.

Growing up, I had always loved and looked forward to Missions Conferences at my church. I thought how amazing it would be to become a missionary, to go across the world and tell those who had never even heard the name of Jesus and about His love for them. I surrendered to go and to do whatever God had planned for my life as a teenager at youth conference. As for a calling to the mission field, I believe that happened when I agreed to marry my husband who was called to the mission field. My calling is to my husband, to love, encourage, and support him in whatever amazing thing God has called him to do. I am so blessed to be able to follow and support such a godly man.

Go Oishi Prayer Letter: The Fourth Quarter of Our Deputation

Go Oishi Prayer Letter: The Fourth Quarter of Our DeputationGlory to God! By His grace, we are now officially in the fourth quarter of our deputation, with close to 80% of our support raised. Five supporting churches were added to us this month, among many other blessings; and we are excited, as always, to share with you what God has done this month.

We continued in our new territory with a meeting in Delta, Utah, and then one in Idaho Falls, Idaho. God gave us great favor in these meetings. During our snowy journey, we received two miraculous phone calls. The first was from our supporting church in Beaver Creek, Oregon, where we have had the opportunity of reaching Japanese exchange students hosted by their Christian school. It was the wonderful news that Lei Takamizawa, the very first young man I had the privilege of sharing the Gospel with during our time there back in September, had accepted Christ as his personal Saviour! We have been praying for him since our time together, and it was wonderful to hear that more fruit has been reaped from the seeds that were sown. The second call came from another one of our supporting churches in El Cerrito, California. During a layover in Japan on the way to a missions trip to the Philippines, the missions director there had surrendered to the mission field when witnessing the darkness of Japan with his own eyes! Seeing fruit such as this makes us even more excited about what God will do during the 2020 Japan Olympic Outreach!

Our next meeting took place in DuPont, Washington, where the church there voted to partner with us financially that same night! For that meeting, we had the privilege of lodging with our dear friends who allowed us to use their guest home as our base when traveling in the Northwest for the last time before our first term in Japan. It is difficult to believe that we are now in the goodbye phase of deputation! As we left Washington, we received a letter from them, letting us know that they have prayerfully decided to support us individually as a family! It is difficult to part from our friends in the United States but encouraging to know that each of these families and churches has a part in what God allows us to do.

Deputation continued as we traveled back through Pocatello, Idaho, for a meeting, and then down into Dudleyville, Arizona. While we were there, the church in Bacavi, Arizona, on the Hopi Reservation that we presented to last month, contacted us to let us know of their decision to partner with us! Blessings continued at the next church we presented at in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where the congregation voted right away to have a monthly part in our ministry. Praise the Lord! This has truly been a month where much prayer and financial support have been added.

The church that we had the privilege of presenting to next was in Arizona City, Arizona, and there the Lord blessed us with an increase that is far greater than money. Not only are they a praying church, but they have produced one of the young men going with us on the 2020 Japan Olympic Outreach, who is currently training not only to be effective on this outreach, but also to have a possible future ministry with us in Japan. We were introduced to his family, who all, by faith, have fully supported his calling. Glory to God for more laborers—our greatest prayer request!

We ended this month with an hour and a half of soul winning in Palm Desert, California. The first of March is when we present, and we are excited to see what God does, as He has clearly given us favor already with the church here! Thank you for your part in all that we praise God for.

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
