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: Hundreds of Japanese People in the U.S. Given the Gospel in Their Language

Go Oishi Prayer Letter: Hundreds of Japanese People in the U.S. Given the Gospel in Their LanguageGlory to God! A month where all of our plans fell through has been turned into something even greater, as God revealed His plans!

We left off in our report last month by announcing that we had designed and printed 2,500 Japanese-English Gospel tracts to be passed out in Southern California, the place with the highest concentration of Japanese people living within the continental U.S. Of course, August was originally a month that we had planned to be in Japan, hosting multiple groups to evangelize at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. We had decided that, if we could not be in Japan, then we would work to reach as many Japanese people as possible in the U.S.

The Lord allowed us to host two major outreach events with our home church in Wildomar, California. As Japanese people often assimilate very well into American society, we found that the best place to try to find them was in and around Japanese grocery stores. Thus, we planned our first outreach to the parking lots of multiple Japanese grocery stores and businesses in Torrance, California, where over 10% of the city’s population claims the Japanese ethnicity. We gave the announcement during a Wednesday night service and trusted God to provide the laborers for that following Saturday. My wife and I, along with a few teenagers, surveyed the area on Friday and prayed that God would do a miracle by allowing the Japanese people to be more receptive than they are often known to be, that He would give us favor with the authorities in the area, and that He would allow us to see a full van of soul winners come from our sending church. On Saturday morning, God did an absolute miracle. Our church van rolled in with 26 laborers from our sending church! Note that the announcement for this outreach was made with just a three-day notice and that this was an hour-and-a-half ride one way for them! Hundreds of Japanese people received our Gospel tracts! Over a thousand Gospel tracts were passed out that day! Two people trusted Christ as their Saviour! God gave us such favor with the local authorities that many of the store managers allowed us to leave stacks of our tracts at their front counters! This all happened in Los Angeles County in some of the most difficult areas of California!

We had such a good weekend that we decided to host another outreach, this time to Gardena, California, a city with a smaller population, but with 11% of the people claiming the Japanese ethnicity. After a week of serving and doing some music visitation to some of the members of our home church who cannot leave their homes, we did the same thing. We surveyed and prayed on Friday, and God did a miracle on Saturday. Twenty-two other laborers came out, hundreds more Japanese contacts were made, and one got saved! On each of these tracts, we left our personal contact information, as well as our website, so we are praying that God would allow us to continue to see fruit out of these efforts!

Near the end of the month, we completed our seventh cross-country trip to our two meetings in Iowa, marking the beginning of the final leg of our deputation. The first was in Anamosa, Iowa, where we had the privilege of helping with the recent storm damage, as well as starting a website for their church. While out soul winning with that church, a young man named Josiah was led to Christ! Soon after was our Missions Conference in Washington, Iowa, where we went soul winning for 4 hours and saw 3 visitors come as a result! They, as well as a church in Moorhead, Minnesota, and Loveland, Colorado, financially partnered with us during that last week. Praise the Lord! His work has not stopped when the world has!

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
