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 and Danielle Oishi Prayer Letter: Student of a Buddhist Middle-School from an Agnostic Household Gets Saved!

Go and Danielle Oishi Prayer Letter: Student of a Buddhist Middle-School from an Agnostic Household Gets Saved!To God be the glory! We will skip our introduction line this time, as we have so many blessings to report covering our first full month back in Japan! We have been given increased opportunities to serve in the ministries of the Senri Newtown Baptist Church upon our return from the U.S. For the next year, my wife and I will continue to serve in the children and teen departments respectively, but with much more involvement. In addition, I have begun my training as a church van driver, which will equip me even more for when we plant our first church. We were also given certain neighborhoods on the eastern edge of our city outside of their typical outreach radius on which to focus our evangelism this year. Please pray for the 15,000-plus homes in these neighborhoods that need the Gospel! God has given us a good start this month by allowing us to make 28 personal contacts and deliver 2,413 Gospel tracts in these areas.

We have been able to reconnect quickly with our contacts here through the giving of souvenirs. We have already been able to share a meal with the couple from the Chuo ward. Two of our contacts live in downtown Osaka, where it is common to find people who are physically lost, giving us the perfect opportunities to make contacts. Please pray as we continually seek ways to confront the Japanese people, who culturally avoid social confrontation completely, with the Gospel.

On the 19th, I had the privilege of witnessing to another Japanese exchange student. As she came from an agnostic household in Tokyo and attends a Buddhist middle school, staying with her Christian host family and attending church regularly were completely new experiences for her. After just a few months of experiencing the love of Christians, by the time I connected with her, her heart was already filled with the desire to know Christ personally. Upon carefully explaining to her the Gospel and presenting her with the invitation to trust Christ, she told me that she desired to pray herself to receive Christ rather than having me guide her. As soon as she began to pray, she began sobbing as she sweetly accepted Christ as her personal Saviour. Immediately following her salvation, she was filled with the desire to grow more as a Christian and had so many great questions about knowing and pleasing Christ. Upon her return to Japan just two weeks after, my wife and I decided to send her a Bible. Please pray, as my wife will continue to follow up with her.

God allowed us to come to the Senri Newtown Baptist Church at the perfect time, as they are now resuming so many of the events that they had to put on pause due to restrictions. This process of resuming ministries serves as a perfect learning opportunity for us, as we will be starting everything from scratch. On the 14th, we were given permission to pass out Gospel tracts at the new Osaka University campus in our city of Minoo. On the 17th, we had the Youth Camp and Singles’ Retreat, which the church hasn’t been able to host in three years. We were blessed with 117 campers and 14 churches represented from all over Japan!

With all of our new opportunities to serve, my wife and I decided that it was time to purchase our first car in Japan, which in this country is typically a three-week process from deciding on the car. We were praying for a car, reasonably priced enough to pay in cash that was good on fuel economy, yet seating more than five people so it could be used to transport people for church. Most of this process took place in May, but by the end of April, we praise God that not only did we find the perfect fit for our vehicle, but He provided for a majority of the cost through a very generous anonymous investor! Please be looking forward next month to the photos of our first car in Japan: a pearl-white, seven-seater 2017 Toyota Sienta Hybrid G!

Danielle’s Journey

It is so good to be back home in Japan. Since I have resumed my in-person language school and the children’s ministries at the church, I will also resume “Danielle’s Journey.” This month has been the start of so many new opportunities for me. We have resumed our outreach multiple times a week, and on one of the days, I was able to make 17 personal contacts in one day! I was also able to make my first visits on my own when I delivered souvenirs from America to our neighbors. In the children’s ministries, I have been given the opportunity to lead the Scripture memory time on a weekly basis. I also had the opportunity to fellowship with the youth of the church at a Youth Fellowship and Youth Camp, which was held this month. It was so exciting to see so many young people excited about the Lord, and it was such a blessing to be able to speak with them in their language.

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
