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: Sowing as We Witness the Reaping of Those Who Have Sowed

Go and Danielle Oishi Prayer Letter: Sowing as We Witness the Reaping of Those Who Have SowedPraise the Lord! Even with the State of Emergency being extended to June 20 and Japan entering the rainy season, God gave us another victorious month!

It was encouraging to see firsthand the Senri Newtown Baptist Church take a step of faith by deciding to reopen their doors for in-person services at the beginning of the month in spite of the State of Emergency being extended. The June 2 midweek service was the first time the church had been able to meet since the middle of April, and I was given the opportunity to lead a game in Japanese for the first time in the teen class. After the service, my wife and I were so encouraged to find out that, during the State of Emergency, both the church staff and members had been personally giving and mailing out the Japanese Gospel tracts, which we wrote and designed, to their unsaved friends, family, and coworkers. We were requested to restock the church with our Gospel tracts that night! We are so thankful for the many ways that God encourages us through this church as we labor together for souls in Japan!

On the first in-person Sunday service on the 6th, a young lady came as a visitor and got saved after the service! On the following week on the 13th and again on the 16th during the midweek service, God allowed the Senri Newtown Baptist Church to see a visitor come and get saved that same day. We are so looking forward to when we will be able to reap the way that they are, but we are solemnly reminded that the church is now reaping as a result of over five decades of faithful sowing. We are humbled and encouraged to continue sowing faithfully as we witness how God blesses faithfulness!

On the subject of sowing, God allowed us to have another victorious month in advancing our Luke Project posting efforts in unreached areas in Japan. By God’s grace, we were able to deliver the Gospel to over 1,000 homes in spite of the heavy rains this month, completing the unreached areas in the town of Miyake and allowing us to venture north into the town of Kawanishi, a town without a single church. On less rainy days, we often see someone reach into their mailbox to begin reading our tracts immediately. It is also encouraging that the view count on our website also indicates that many have, at the very least, taken an interest in what is written in these tracts. An unforeseen blessing that comes with the Luke Project is the fact that we are able to explore areas that are farther out in Japan, allowing us to bring back local specialties for our neighbors as a way to create opportunities to interact and be a blessing. Please pray for the salvation of our neighbors!

I was given the privilege of preaching my first in-person message to adults in Japan on Tuesday, the 22nd, at the church’s Ladies’ Meeting. Language school has also been a unique witnessing opportunity, as we have been role-playing applicable situations, giving me the privilege to explain the Gospel in bits and pieces during lessons. One of my teachers is an atheist, yet after giving her one of my tracts, she read it and expressed great interest in Christ! Please pray for these opportunities to grow, as well as for my next project—the Japanese driver’s license!

Danielle’s Journey

This month seemed to pass by so quickly. A mother and daughter who attend our church almost always come up to talk to us after the service. A few weeks ago, the daughter told us that she started learning the violin, and her mother explained to me that she actually started because of me, which made me so happy to hear. I have not been using the English- translation service at church for about a month now, and I was able to give a short part of our Saturday Facebook Live update in Japanese! I was so nervous beforehand, but it ended up going smoothly! I was able to give out two tracts this month at the language school that I attend. One was given to the secretary at the front counter, and the other was given to the only teacher whom I had not yet had the chance to give one to. She was teaching me how to recruit helpers in Japanese by role-playing a church Christmas event, and I just so happened to have saved one last church Christmas event flyer from when we first arrived, which I was able to give to her during our role-play! Thank you for your prayers as I continue to learn the language and build new relationships here.

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
