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: Laying the Groundwork for the Kisarazu Kibō (“Hope”) Baptist Church

Go and Danielle Oishi Prayer Letter: Laying the Groundwork for the Kisarazu Kibō (“Hope”) Baptist ChurchGlory to God! With only a year remaining until our scheduled move to the city of Kisarazu, where God has called us to plant our first church, we are quickly transitioning into a season of practical preparation for our upcoming church plant. So much progress has been made already in this short month, and we are excited to report all that God has allowed us to do and to give a more detailed outline of our strategy for the planting of the Kisarazu Kibō (“Hope”) Baptist Church!

One of the many lessons we have learned from the Senri Newtown Baptist Church comes from how it was planted and how it has grown. This fruitful local church that has been planting local churches for the last 56 years began in a rented space and waited to purchase any building until the church body had grown numerically and spiritually enough to raise their own funds for their own building. This allowed the church to become its own investment and not something that was handed to them. We believe that this is one of many important models we must follow in Japan if we hope to see our church continue past our lifetime, should the Lord tarry His return. However, in Japan, in order to have the legal power to invite missionaries to labor long-term, we need to own land where activities are recorded and registered. As there is such a great need for more laborers in Japan, we believe that it is also our responsibility to take the necessary steps to open the door for more missionaries to be able to arrive in this nation where the borders are heavily regulated. For these reasons, we decided that we will start our church in a rented space but buy land for our personal housing, reserving a portion of that land and building as our church office where we can meet with people freely outside of our rented-auditorium-space hours, as well as begin recording a history of activity with the purpose of obtaining the power to bring future missionaries in. As we have been advised to plan and begin this process a year ahead if we were to purchase land and build, we spent the majority of this month outlining and carrying out the practical and financial aspects of this plan, starting with the decisions involving land and a mortgage.

We had our first meeting with our real estate agent on August 4, and after a series of meetings that followed, we scheduled a trip from August 25–27 to survey potential land available for purchase and meeting spaces available for rent. God allowed us to find a beautiful building off of a main street that was specifically built to rent out for indoor events, and when we went to see it, the owners happened to be there and were kind enough to show us the inside, as well as give us the contact to book in advance. To our surprise, Sunday mornings were rarely booked. This space holds 50 people, with two separate rooms that we could use for a nursery, as well as for a children’s church. As for the land, we were shown a beautiful corner lot off of another well-traveled road, where having a public office space was permitted. We made the decision to secure this land on the 31st and will likely be using the rental space that the Lord allowed us to find. Please continue to pray, as our next step will be the building and securing of our mortgage plans!

The church was able to hold its Family Bible Camp for the first time in four years on August 11 & 12. Most of my duties involved driving and filling in last-minute needs, while my wife was involved in the children’s programs. We are so thankful to Senri Newtown Baptist Church for all of the opportunities they give us to serve and be involved in while simultaneously investing countless hours of counsel in guiding us through this church-planning process!

Danielle’s Journey

I have taken over 300 language lessons now! I am currently only 10 levels away from finishing the curriculum. I’ve begun working on business-level Japanese. While talking to one of the cashiers of a fast-food restaurant near my school, I received a huge encouragement. She recognized me as “the foreigner who spoke Japanese like a Japanese person”! I was also able to give her a tract and invite her to church while I was waiting for my food. The church held its Family Bible Camp this month, and I had the privilege of working in the children’s ministries during it. There were separated services for the children, which were taught by the guest speaker’s wife. I enjoyed my time serving and was able to learn a lot during the camp. We also took a trip to Kisarazu this month. I once again fell in love with the city where we will call home. Although I will miss all of the kind people at the church where we are training now, I am so excited to live and serve there! Thank you for your continued prayers and support. Knowing that we have so many faithful friends praying for us thousands of miles away means the world to us.

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
