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 Plans for a Short Document Furlough

Go and Danielle Oishi Prayer Letter: Announcing Plans for a Short Document FurloughHallelujah! This month was the last month of all official State of Emergency restrictions all over Japan, and we were able to advance in so many ways!

Thank you for all of your prayers regarding the test for my Japanese driver’s license. As was recommended to me by many, I decided to take a two-day practice course to prepare me for the test. I was able to tell my instructor a little bit about what Christ did for me and hand him a tract. I was blessed with even more new contacts on the actual day of the test on the 15th, where I was able to meet a young man from the United Arab Emirates and a fellow Japanese man who spent time in Malaysia, both to whom I was able to give a tract and tell a little bit about why I returned to Japan. Please pray for the salvation of these three men. As an answer to prayer, the two young men and I were all able to pass the test and obtain a Japanese driver’s license!

There is another door that was opened to us this month, as well as a door that was reopened in terms of building relationships to point people to Christ. On the 6th, one of the assistant pastors at the Senri Newtown Baptist Church introduced me to one of his unsaved childhood friends, whom we randomly saw while running an errand and were able to have a good conversation with him and his friends that were there. On the 11th, we were able to reconnect with the couple from the Kita Ward of Osaka who, through the Airbnb we were staying in while looking for our current apartment, became our first contacts for outreach in Japan. As we had lost communication for a while, we decided to write a letter to them, asking them how they were and inviting them to the October 17 service, where I am scheduled to play a cello special. They promised to come if they are feeling well enough on that day. On the 22nd, we enjoyed a lunch outing with the man from the Chuo Ward of Osaka, whom I had the privilege of helping at the Japanese driver’s test scheduling window last month, as well as his wife. Though the wife is Japanese, the man is not and speaks very little Japanese, and he was very worried about his upcoming Japanese driver’s test. I agreed to help explain the course to him in English on a day that they reserved a practice time slot on the course, for which they were extremely grateful. After he passes his driver’s test and it is off of his mind, we are planning to invite them to our house and, this time, explain the one and only course to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. Please pray for the salvation of these souls!

Another great blessing this month was the fact that I had the privilege of preaching a total of five times: twice for the Senri Newtown Baptist Church, twice for prerecorded school chapel sessions for a supporting church, and once for a live Wednesday evening service for another supporting church! This was also the month of extending my wife’s visa, which went very smoothly. As there is a bit of extra paperwork that needs to be submitted from the U.S., we are taking a very brief document furlough, where we will be off the field starting December 29, hopefully for no more than six weeks, after which we are returning straight to the field. Due to time restrictions and our needed location flexibility with the document schedule, we are not planning to schedule any furlough meetings for this particular trip, as our endeavor will be to complete the necessary procedures and return to the field as quickly as possible. We are planning to take an actual furlough to visit all of our supporting churches sometime in 2023, before planting our first church. Thank you for your prayers!

Danielle’s Journey

Often while walking to my language school, I pass by a lady who is gardening. This month I was finally able to speak with her and invite her to church. At the church, I have continued working in the children’s ministries. I am grateful for all the areas in which the church allows us to serve. This month I took a short break from language school to celebrate finishing the first textbook (25 levels). I am now halfway to where my husband started with his lessons. We are nearing the end of my first visa, so toward the end of this month, we were able to get it renewed for one more year. Japan is beginning to feel more and more like home to us. I’m so grateful for the joy, peace, and comfort that comes with being in the center of God’s will.

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
