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: 100%

Go Oishi Prayer Letter:  100%Praise the Lord! As the title suggests, God has allowed us to reach 100% of our support goal this month! We are truly thankful to every church and individual who has been faithful to pray and give toward the cause of the Gospel reaching the Japanese people.

Our month began in the city of Mt. Pleasant, where we enjoyed a tremendous final meeting in the state of Wisconsin. A day after, we drove down to Hammond, Indiana, for our final Exit Interview with our missions support agency, FBMI. The meeting went very smoothly and resulted in a raise in support from the First Baptist Church of Hammond, the church under which FBMI serves! During that same meeting, we were able to finalize some of the fine details of completing the “cleanup” process from the 2020 trip and moving on to the planning of the 2021 Japan Olympic Outreach!

From there we finished up the last of our meetings in the state of Michigan, my home state, as well as one of our highest-supporting states. One of these meetings took place in the form of a Missions Conference in the city of Temperance, where my wife and I had the privilege of reuniting with many familiar faces. We started the conference with two hours of soul winning and ended with our personal decision to double our missions giving!

Our time in Michigan was followed by our last two meetings in the state of Ohio. The first of these meetings took place in the city of Broadview Heights, where the Lord encouraged us in a special way. Some of the core members of that church are a Japanese family of eleven that had an amazing testimony of moving from Japan and getting saved in the United States. They now have two sons in Bible college, and the entire family serves together faithfully in the church. Hearing their testimony served as an amazing encouragement to us for the lives we pray to see transformed in Japan! At that same meeting, two young people came forward after I had the privilege of preaching their evening service. A young man named Ethan surrendered his life to be a missionary, and a young lady named Alayna surrendered her life to the Lord! Praise God!

We finished this month at a Missions Conference in Williamsburg, Kentucky, where we had the joy of sharing the meeting with one of my closest friends and a groomsman at our wedding, now on deputation for Nigeria with his sweet wife and daughter. This church, as well as some of our churches visited in previous months in Galesville, Wisconsin, and Brookings, South Dakota, all partnered with us financially this month!

Another miracle that took place this month was the easing of Japan’s borders. Though we have been working on visa paperwork for Japan since this past January, rules have changed constantly, and many parts of the process had to be redone due to interferences caused by COVID-19. On top of this, all official government paperwork in Japan expires after three months. Timing has been difficult; however, we were able to complete and gather all needed paperwork, and it is now on its way to Japan. Please pray that it will be processed in a timely manner to make our intended arrival in November possible. Until then, we will complete the last of our meetings, where any additional support raised can go directly towards doing more for the work of God! The 100% is a bare-minimum figure recommended by pastors in Japan, as well as by FBMI, to sustain life and ministry. God has already blessed us with a small surplus, increasing our ministry funds and allowing us to have a greater vision for what can be done for Him!

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
