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: Announcing Our First Church-Plant Location in Our 50th Praise Report

Go and Danielle Oishi Prayer Letter: Announcing Our First Church-Plant Location in Our 50th Praise ReportPraise the Lord! After over eight months of praying, fasting, obtaining counsel, researching, and visiting several of the most unreached places in Japan, God has given us absolute peace about planting our first church in the city of Kisarazu in the Chiba Prefecture as early as next year! Thank you for so many of you who have prayed with us going into this major decision, as well as for your part in our 50 months full of praises thus far! We look forward to many more!

It has been a wonderful blessing and encouragement to continue hearing about the results of our two evangelistic services that took place last month. Out of the 35 first-time Japanese visitors who came and heard the Gospel on our “Welcome Day” services in the city of Iwakuni, we have heard that many of them have returned multiple times since! What an encouragement Faith Baptist Church of Iwakuni is to us, as this U.S. Military ministry continues to press forward to reach not only the nearby base and the local English-speaking people, but also the local Japanese souls despite all of the cultural challenges! As for the “Grace Fellowship” services that took place here at the Senri-Newtown Baptist Church, we have had many of the faithful ladies at the church tell us how their unsaved friends and relatives, whom they brought as visitors that day, have been considering Christ more than ever before since hearing the Gospel clearly presented that day. Please pray that God would continue to work in hearts, as many continue to battle their various relationships that hinder them from making the decision of trusting Christ alone as their personal Saviour!

We dedicated the second week of this month to quietly fast and pray once again to seek God’s clear direction on our church-plant location after we surveyed one final location. Though we had felt a strong burden to come here since we first surveyed this city back in December, we wanted to confirm that this was God’s will and not our own. Over eight months later, on the 13th of this month, we can say with absolute confidence that God has called us to plant a church in Kisarazu, an unreached city with a population of over 136,000 people, as well as one of the few cities in Japan with a growing population by about 1,000 annually, with many young families. The city sits on the eastern end of the Tokyo Bay Aqua-Line that connects the Bōsō Peninsula on the east and the Tokyo Metropolitan area on the west across the Tokyo Bay with the world’s longest across-water roadway. Many young families seeking work opportunities in the larger cities, but looking for affordable housing, are quickly moving to the Bōsō Peninsula, especially to the city of Kisarazu, as well as the neighboring unreached cities of Sodegaura to the north and Kimitsu and Futtsu to the south. These four cities comprise an area with a combined population of over 300,000, locally known as Aqua-Line East, and will be the area that we will be targeting with the Gospel by planting a church-planting church in Kisarazu as early as next year. For many reasons, we believe that God has been preparing both my wife and me our entire lives to reach this area with the Gospel, and we are excited to enter the early stages of planning the Kisarazu Kibō (“Hope”) Baptist Church!

On Sunday, the 24th, we invited our unsaved friends from the Chuo Ward of Osaka again to enjoy another church service together with us, as well as to celebrate their birthdays at our house after the service. The Madrigals, our missionary friends who recently arrived here from Mexico, also joined, and it was a wonderful time to give the Gospel yet again to this couple! It has been evident that God has been working stronger every time we meet, and we are prayerfully looking forward to the day that they get saved! Thank you for continuing to pray for them, as well as for our many other friends we have made who are in need of Christ.

Danielle’s Journey

This month definitely felt like summer here in Japan. The church currently has a summer program going on during the children’s summer break. Every week, there is a special promotion. We began with Otanoshimi (“Fun”) Land, where the church sets up booths of games, like ring toss and paper fishing, to be enjoyed after a salvation message. I had the privilege of helping with the setup, as well as the water-gun booth. It was such an encouragement to see about 40 children come to church that day. We also are praying for one of our visitors from the “Grace Fellowship” meeting to return and bring her son during the summer promotions. Also, thank you all for your faithful prayers for our church-plant location decision. We are so excited to begin preparations for our future church in Kisarazu, Chiba! I am so grateful that we have so many faithful Christians praying for our future ministries here in Japan.

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
