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: Halfway There!

Go Oishi Prayer Letter: Halfway There!To God be the Glory! Records have been set this month! In terms of the number of days my wife and I were a part of a church service, this September was the busiest month thus far on deputation. This month alone, my wife and I had the privilege of being a part of 9 different meetings, 5 of them being Missions Conferences! On top of that, God has given us traveling mercies flying back and forth from California and driving cross-country from the state of Washington to Michigan in the midst of these meetings. We are thrilled to share with you the great things He has done along the way!

Our final leg of meetings in the Northwest began with a Missions Conference in Colville, Washington. There my wife and I had the privilege of going out soul winning for a total of four hours and helping with maintenance for both the church building and the grounds. God also potentially allowed us to schedule a meeting with one of the guest speakers who was there! God gave us a great start!

Our time in Washington was immediately followed by four back-to-back meetings, including two Missions Conferences in Oregon. In our first meeting in Beavercreek, Oregon, I had the opportunity of spending four hours witnessing to Lei and Laito (pictured above), who were two Japanese exchange students currently being hosted by the Christian school there. As this was their first time ever hearing the Gospel and learning about the concept of true forgiveness (which is non-existent in the Japanese language or culture), they told me that they still needed time before they were willing to trust Jesus Christ by faith. Please pray for these two young men; for the next 10 months, they will have the privilege of hearing Christ preached in their Christian school, their host-family homes, as well as at the church!

Immediately following that Missions Conference was another conference in Sherwood, Oregon. There my wife and I had the privilege of spending time with veteran missionary, Don Sisk (pictured above), the one who started the Senri Newtown Baptist Church and won Pastor Sogoro Ogawa to the Lord! It was a special time of fellowship, as he was the man whom God used to establish the work where my wife and I will be starting our ministry in Japan. Praise the Lord for faithful men who have served God sacrificially for decades!

This month, two of the churches where we presented took us on for support right away! In addition, the church in El Cerrito, California, gave us a call, letting us know that they have also voted to partner with us! Upon gaining these new partners in His Great Commission, we are excited to announce that we are now officially over halfway to Japan financially! Thank you for all of your prayers that have amounted to such blessings only possible by the hand of God!

As an additional blessing, God has allowed us to book all the flights needed for the 2020 Japan Olympic Outreach! Indeed, God’s hand is moving!

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
