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: A Newly Chartered Church Partners With Us as Their Pioneer Missionaries

Go Oishi Prayer Letter:  A Newly Chartered Church Partners With Us as Their Pioneer MissionariesAll praises to our Lord Jesus Christ! June was an extraordinary month for us, with many souls won to Christ and every church either voting to partner with us or scheduling to partner with us at a later date! Your prayers for God’s hand to be upon all that He allows us to do have been very evident, and we are thrilled to share with you however much will fit on this page!

Last month, we left off in the ministries of Marysville, Ohio. That following weekend, my wife and I had the privilege of going soul winning with that church, and we had the privilege of witnessing to a man named Sheldon. Sheldon remembered his father trusting Jesus as his Saviour weeks before going to Heaven five years prior; however, he had no recollection of getting saved himself. That same day, Sheldon got that fixed by accepting Christ’s free gift by grace through faith and is now looking forward to seeing his earthly and spiritual Father face to face! That following Sunday night, the church voted to take us on for monthly support! What a way to start off a month full of blessings!

On the following Wednesday, we had the privilege of presenting our ministry at a church that was planted by the church in Marysville, Ohio. They had chartered as an independent church just two months before we arrived, and the first thing on the mind of their pastor and congregation was the excitement of supporting their own missionary! Glory to God for churches that are excited about the Great Commission! We went soul winning with them, and a lady named Melissa ended up getting saved! On top of that, the newly chartered church there at Urbana, Ohio, voted to partner with us as their very first missionaries! This all happened just in the first week of June – and we are already running out of space!

Our next meeting took place in Streetsboro, Ohio. We had a tremendous time ministering and fellowshipping there with many of our friends from college who were actively serving at that church. To continue the blessings of this month, this church had told us that they were already planning to support us prior to our arrival – and that plan has been confirmed! The very same blessing happened two weeks later at Central Lake, Michigan. They also had our partnership in mind for months, and the Lord allowed us to partner with them financially that very same night! While out soul winning there at Central Lake, Michigan, we were able to lead a man named Ward to our Lord Jesus Christ!

This Father’s Day, we had the privilege of giving an update to our partner in Waterford, Michigan, where I grew up as a teenager. This was a special time, as my wife and I had the privilege of going soul winning with the person who first invited my family and me to church. While out soul winning, a man named Frank got saved and got baptized at the end of this month!

July will be a crucial month, as most decisions and delegates for the 2020 Japan Olympic Outreach will be finalized. Thank you for praying extra!

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
