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: Victories Against All Odds!

Go Oishi Prayer Letter: Victories Against All Odds!Praise be to God, Who remains faithful and almighty in the midst of a constantly changing and weakening world! This month, my wife and I celebrated our two-year wedding anniversary, and next month will mark two years on the road! It is amazing to me how the Lord has blessed in these two short years, and even in this most unusual month, God has continued to bless!

Towards the beginning of the month, we were contacted by FBMI to schedule our preliminary exit interview, as we are now close to the 90% mark of support. We are grateful for all the prayers and support that God has used to bring us to this point. During our meeting, my wife and I had the privilege of meeting with the leadership of FBMI to discuss our options with the unraveling of the 2020 Japan Olympic Outreach. This has been the core focus of our time in these past two months, as the unraveling of a six-figure budget that involved 46 people has been a massive undertaking. We sincerely covet your prayers that God would continue to give us His wisdom and direction in all of this! As of the time we are writing this letter, we are finally at the tail end of the rearranging, and we are excited to announce its miraculous outcome in our next letter!

We are thankful that God has continued to show His favor upon our meeting calendar, as we had no cancellations of meetings this month, neither did any of our meetings have to be rescheduled! Two of our meetings turned into virtual meetings, but that was thankfully the only alteration to our original calendar. Our first in-person meeting, where we had the privilege of presenting to a congregation (as opposed to cameras), took place in Lafayette, Ohio, where the Lord moved in their hearts to partner with us financially just a few days later! Within that same week, we heard back from our meeting in Pocatello, Idaho, from earlier in the year, letting us know that they have also voted to partner with us! Praise the Lord!

This is the second month where our good friends and long-time partners in Goodrich, Michigan, allowed us to stay in their prophet’s chamber as our home base for these unusual days. We are infinitely grateful for the faith and generosity of these amazing friends. My wife and I wanted to show them our gratitude in a special way, so the Lord allowed us to write and compose a hymn dedicated to their church, titled “Fear Thou Not.” It was received with much joy and gladness, and it was truly a special way to spend our last service with them, which was their first in-person Sunday since the beginning of the lockdown!

During our time at Goodrich, Michigan, there quickly came a point where we were tired of not knocking on doors. Thus, we grabbed some Gospel tracts, went out into a neighborhood, and went door-to-door soul winning! On the third door in, a young man named Andrew and his younger sister Michaela trusted Christ as their Saviour! Glory to God! Soul winning still works!

We praise the Lord that Japan officially lifted their state of emergency this month. Please pray now that they would also lift their travel restrictions as scheduled by the end of June. My wife and I, along with a small group we are taking with us, already have tickets to fly to Japan on July 15, 2020. We sincerely and urgently covet your prayers that God would allow us to penetrate Japan while their hearts are still fearful and tender!

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
