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 have 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 where 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: Raising Support and Reaching the Japanese

Go Oishi Prayer Letter:  Raising Support and Reaching the JapaneseGlory to His name! What an exciting month it has been. We spent the month of February sharing our burden and vision with eight different churches mainly in Northern California, as well as Arizona. We are thrilled to share with you how God moved in these meetings!

One of our meetings took place in Concord, California, and the pastor there was able to direct us to another pastor in Brentwood, California (a neighboring city), who opened his back room for us to spend a few nights during our stay in the North! Though we originally had not scheduled to present in Brentwood, the pastor we stayed with allowed us to share our burden to his church that same Sunday since we were already at his house! Long story short, they ended up taking us on for support! God is indeed the one Who opens doors for missionaries!

The highlight of this month was the Missions Conference held in Phoenix, Arizona. My wife and I enjoyed ministering and being ministered to at that great church. While out soul winning before one of the evening sessions, a lady named Melanie got saved! It was also during this conference that we celebrated my wife’s birthday on the 26th. The precious couple that housed us during the conference made her birthday very special. On top of that, it was also on the night of her birthday that the church there voted to partner with us financially on the closing night of their conference! How great is our God!

During our time in Arizona, a good friend from college, who is now serving in a church in Oregon, called me to witness to his Japanese visitors. I was able to give the Gospel to them; however, as this was their first time ever hearing of the name of Jesus Christ, they were not quite ready to make a true profession of faith solely in Him as their Saviour. Please pray that God will continue working in the hearts of Shayla and Irene that they might be saved!

Many of our prayer and financial partners have asked about a CD of our vocal and instrumental hymns. This month, we were able to record a full album at our sending church! They are not for sale; we would like to give them as a gift to those who have already blessed us so much as partners in His Great Commission. Please let me know if you would like one, and we will gladly send you a copy!

Thank you for praying for us regularly and investing in our ministry. God is indeed blessing in very obvious ways!

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,UniUn
