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 Oishi Prayer Letter: Our Miraculous Permanent Entry Into Japan

Go Oishi Prayer Letter: Our Miraculous Permanent Entry Into JapanGlory to God! This is the first praise report that we have the privilege of writing as missionaries on the field! We are so grateful for all of the continued support that has gotten us to this place, and we are excited to share with you the miracles that went into our permanent arrival in Japan.

Last month, we wrote our praise report to you from the airplane as we were aboard our one-way flight to Japan. God miraculously allowed the Japanese government to grant us entry permission for our long-term stay at the end of November, and we were able to get the official visa on the 30th. Within the next three days, God allowed us to pack all of our belongings, locate the correct rapid COVID test (after visiting three clinics)—with a negative test result for both of us, and book our flight, quarantine lodging, and quarantine private transport. Our flight left at midnight as the very first flight of December 3. Both the plane and the airport were unnervingly empty, and Danielle was one of the only two non-Japanese passengers on our flight.

We are so thankful for the hundreds, perhaps thousands, of friends and pastors who prayed fervently for what was to come: the immigration. Our 10-hour flight landed safely at the Tokyo Haneda Airport around 5:00 in the morning of the following day, Japan Standard Time. The COVID screening right before the immigration gates went very smoothly, and by the grace of God, we were miraculously able to enter the borders of Japan at a time when only a select few categories of people are being granted entry. What an amazing joy to know that we have a God Who still does miracles and that we have armies of prayer warriors interceding on our behalf to our great God!

The miracles continued as we checked into our required quarantine location. Airbnb bookings, like hotels, often do not allow check-ins until the afternoon. Our host, however, made a special exception for us, as our flight landed so early in the morning, and allowed us to check in at 7:00 a.m.! The next 14 days were a great time to nourish and prepare our relationship with God and each other for the work that was to come. Also during this time, God allowed us to finalize all of our lodging arrangements for the 2021 Japan Olympic Outreach, completing all necessary bookings for the trip! In addition, we received news that our Prius has been listed for sale, and four new churches have taken us on for support in Racine, Wisconsin; Riverside, California; Goodyear, Arizona; and Mesa, Arizona. To God be the glory for our increased financial means to do more for Him!

At the conclusion of our 14-day quarantine in Tokyo, we took the first 6-hour bus to Osaka, home of the Senri-Newtown Baptist Church, where we will be starting our ministry. Our first service there was their Christmas service, where a lady who had been away from the Lord returned to renew her commitment to Him, and her daughter got saved in children’s church. They have come faithfully since, along with new visitors in every service. We jumped right in by being a part of their Christmas cleanup. We met with Pastor Ogawa, and he committed himself and the church to helping us plant churches after our time of training and service there! Please pray now as we find a permanent place to live here in Osaka.

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
