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: 2 Years Passed, 2 Families Prepared, and Nearly 32,000 Gospel Seeds Planted

Go and Danielle Oishi Prayer Letter: 2 Years Passed, 2 Families Prepared, and Nearly 32,000 Gospel Seeds PlantedPraise the Lord! We trust that God has given you a wonderful start to the new year. We celebrated our two-year anniversary of being on the field on December 4, and God allowed us to begin our third year on the mission field with a wonderful victory. On December 5, we flew back to the city of Kisarazu in the Chiba prefecture to sign our final mortgage agreement and do a final check on the land upon which our home and church office for our upcoming church plant, the Kisarazu Kibō (“Hope”) Baptist Church, will be built. As a part of the process, we were able to open what will be the operating account for the church plant with this local bank we will be borrowing from. We left Kisarazu with everything set in stone for the land to be purchased and its title to be transferred to our name, and we praise God for all of the right doors that He opened for us throughout this entire process!

After a brief moment of rest, we were able to welcome Bro. and Mrs. Morgan, a missionary family to Japan who are nearly finished raising support, for their survey trip! As they are the second missionary to Japan supported by FBMI, our same missionary-support agency, we have had the privilege of helping them with their immigration process and field planning since September. We praise God that He has blessed our preparation and allowed them to enter on their long-term visas on their first arrival on December 10, which was key to completing many other procedures during their time here in preparation for their permanent arrival with their six children in early March. We are still in awe of how much we were able to accomplish, by the grace of God, during their time here. On Monday, December 12, we were able to fellowship with another missionary family to Japan, who was also here on their survey trip. It was a privilege to explain and help both missionary couples create their mass-transit cards and signature seals, both of which are indispensable for life in Japan. Afterwards, we enjoyed taking them on a brief tour of downtown Osaka. The next day, we were able to complete the Morgans’ mandatory residence registration procedures at the City Hall and help them open a Japanese bank account. On the day following, we were able to submit all of the necessary documents to the Immigration Bureau for their six children to be able to enter on their long-term visas. What was truly unbelievable was that on Thursday, December 15, one of the church staff arranged appointments for the Morgans to be able to view potential rental houses, and all of the documents and procedures that we have been able to obtain and complete up to this point allowed them to decide, sign, and secure a house on the next day! We are truly thankful for all of the pastoral staff of the Senri Newtown Baptist Church who have each helped us and the Morgan family in a massive way. Also on December 15, we received our loan as scheduled and were officially able to purchase our land in Kisarazu! On the next day, we were able to arrange private trial language lessons for each of them at the same language school that Danielle recently completed her language learning. It was quite possibly the fullest week we have had since arriving in Japan, but it was truly a week full of fellowship and blessings! Please pray for Bro. and Mrs. Morgan as they complete their deputation in preparation for their arrival in March with their six children.

In the midst of all of this, we have been busy preparing and inviting for Christmas Eve and Christmas services, the most opportune time to reach people in Japan. We praise God that our friends from the Chuo Ward came back for the Christmas Eve service and that the wife brought 9 visitors with her on Christmas Day! Please pray for the many who heard the Gospel for the first time on that day. This year in Japan, God has allowed us to help the Madrigal and the Morgan families get established, see 4 souls trust Christ as their Saviour, and personally give out 17,774 Gospel tracts, adding to a total of 31,658 since arriving on the field. We praise God for all that He has done and look forward to what He will do in 2023!

Danielle’s Journey

December was my first official month out of language school! I am still taking lessons from Go’s mom once a week, but I am no longer a full-time language student. This allowed me to be fully involved when the Morgans visited for their survey trip. We thoroughly enjoyed showing them our area, where they will also be living very soon! I was able to show Mrs. Morgan our local grocery stores, furniture stores, and clothing stores so she could get an idea of what is available here. We also took the trains and buses in the area so she could become familiar with the system. It was really fun getting to spend time with her and getting to know her, and we got so much accomplished during the short time they were here! At the church ladies’ meeting, I had the privilege of translating my husband’s Japanese message into English in real time for the first time so that the Morgans could understand it as well. We then ended our month with Christmas. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Thank you so much for your continual prayers.

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
