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: Two Souls Saved in Our First Month in Hokkaido

Go and Danielle Oishi Prayer Letter: Two Souls Saved in Our First Month in HokkaidoAll glory to God! This is our first report covering our first month as the interim pastor of the Immanuel Seisho (“Bible”) Baptist Church of Nayoro, Hokkaido, during the six-month furlough of the Smith family, their missionary pastor. God has already done many incredible things in our midst that only He could do, and we are thrilled to write to you about what an amazing start God has given to us for our time serving here in Hokkaido!

On March 30, we left the city of Minoo in the prefecture of Osaka, the place where our journey first began as missionaries in Japan, as well as what was our home for the last nearly 2½ years, to begin a new chapter in our lives and ministry in the city of Nayoro in the northernmost prefecture of Hokkaido. The following few days were spent with the Smith family, who planted the Immanuel Seisho (“Bible”) Baptist Church and has been serving here faithfully for the last 30-plus years. We spent the following few days learning about the more rural life in this region, as well as making several visits with contacts the Smiths had been witnessing to. It was a blessing to be able to meet and share my testimony with these contacts, as well as to preach my first of many sermons at this church in the afternoon service of Sunday, April 1, where Pastor Smith officially handed off this ministry to our care during his family’s furlough. We drove them to the airport the very next day, and with that, our new life and first pastorate in Hokkaido officially began.

The Wilhite Family, another missionary family who has served with the Smiths for 15 years and are now getting prepared to plant a church in the city of Kushiro, Hokkaido, has been a tremendous help and blessing to us with our transition into this ministry. Our first Sunday without the Smiths was Resurrection Sunday on April 9, and God blessed in an incredible way. By His grace, an adult Japanese couple that has been attending for the last month came forward during the invitation to trust Christ as their personal Saviour! Desiring to obey immediately, they made a public profession of their faith during the fellowship time that followed, and they even made the decision to follow the Lord in baptism, which is an incredibly difficult step for most Japanese people! We praise God that He truly moved in a way that only He could. We plan to have them share their salvation testimonies in front of the church for their baptism service, which will take place in the month of May. Please pray for Bro. & Sis. Mizuno as they both begin to grow in Christ!

In the midst of it all, we made another trip to Kisarazu from April 6-7 to complete another bank procedure in preparation for the planting of the Kisarazu Kibō (“Hope”) Baptist Church. Thank you for continuing to pray for our upcoming church plant. On April 15, we began a new weekly Saturday children’s program called Bible Adventure, modeled after a similar program run by the Senri Newtown Baptist Church. We praise God that 3 local moms and 7 children came to our first service! Since then, we have had 2 dads, 3 more moms, and 3 more children come as visitors to this program. Please pray, as they all heard the Gospel clearly presented and were given the opportunity to respond. As an added blessing, Bro. Kai, a young man who got saved during the special evangelistic service when we first visited this ministry last year, returned to church on April 16 after being away for some time. Please pray that he will continue to attend faithfully. We were overjoyed to hear reports from the Senri Newtown Baptist Church that Sis. Kurumi, who got saved last month during Teen Camp, has since returned with her family to church multiple times, along with many of our other friends in Osaka whom we have been witnessing to! God is moving in ways that we can only point back to Him! Thank you for praying that God would continue to do so.

Danielle’s Journey

Life in Hokkaido is so different from life on mainland Japan. The day-to-day lifestyle is different, and even the ingredients in the stores are different. There has been a lot of adjusting. Everything feels new once again, but it is such a joy to be working in the church here in Nayoro. I have gotten to know the kindhearted ladies of the church, like Mrs. Mizuno who recently got saved. The Wilhite family has been such a help in our adjustment. Right now, I have the privilege of teaching the children’s classes and playing piano for the services. For Bible Adventure, I have been leading the Adventure Time, where the children get to learn something new like a game, a craft, or how to cook something—all in English. Then during Bible Time, my husband will tell a story from the Bible and give a clear presentation of the Gospel. It is so encouraging to see the unsaved families return, knowing they will hear more about God and His love for them. Right now, we have several families that come every week! Thank you for praying with us that they will accept Christ as their Saviour. Thank you always for your thoughts and prayers for us as well.

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
