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 have 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 where 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: Now Supported by Over 50 Churches!

Go Oishi Prayer Letter:  Now Supported by Over 50 Churches!Glory to God! God has given us another fruitful month, both in terms of souls won and support raised. It is hard to believe that one year ago, we had a nearly blank November, with only two scheduled meetings on the calendar and one of those having to be rescheduled due to the pastor having to go out of town for a family emergency! This year, every week was filled. It is truly apparent that the number of people praying for us has increased with every meeting over this past year. God has moved in great ways, and we are excited to share with you the results of your prayers!

We began the month with an encouraging text from our partner in Beavercreek, Oregon, where I have had the opportunity of witnessing to their Japanese exchange students in their own language. Out of the previous group, we were notified that two additional students have trusted Christ as their Saviour! As many additional students have come and gone, I had the privilege of spending an hour and a half individually explaining the Gospel to two additional students, Misuzu and Tsubasa. Please pray that these two will also make the decision to place their faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ!

All of this happened within the first week of this month, as we finished up our last meeting in California that we flew out for last month. We had a safe flight back to our home-on-wheels in Wisconsin, where another meeting awaited us. From there we flew out once again to Crownpoint, New Mexico, to help our missionary friend, Aaron Nelson, celebrate his completion of deputation and start a church on the Navajo Indian Reservation. It was a great privilege to have the opportunity of preaching, providing promotions, writing a new hymn, and partnering financially with them as one of their first supporting missionaries! In the midst, God allowed us to meet one of the pastors we will be with in 2020, as well as two others who had invited us to come present at their churches! On the opening night, many visitors came, and three Navajos walked the aisle to receive Christ as their Saviour! Praise the Lord!

Our next Missions Conference began on the same night we flew back to Wisconsin for the second time this month! At the conclusion of our time there at Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the church there presented us with a check to help fund the 2020 Japan Olympic Outreach! Blessings continued to come, as we received two phone calls in that same week from churches where we had previously presented, letting us know that they both have voted to partner with us financially! This brings us up to 65% of our support now raised and close to 60 churches and individuals now supporting our ministry. God indeed still provides!

We concluded this month with spending an hour of soul winning at the Christmas Parade in Gravenhurst, Ontario, Canada, where we presented our ministry on the following day. From there we traveled down to Dundee, Michigan, where we spent another hour of soul winning and had the privilege of leading a young man named Malachi to the Lord! We are truly thankful for all of you who pray and support our ministry faithfully. We trust that you all had a Happy Thanksgiving and pray that you will have a very Merry Christmas!

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
