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: One-Year Anniversary of Marriage and Deputation

Go Oishi Prayer Letter:  One-Year Anniversary of Marriage and DeputationWhat a faithful God we serve! May was a special month for us, as this is the month we celebrated one year as husband and wife, as well as one year of being on the road on full-time deputation. Just one year ago, my wife and I made the decision by faith to turn in our two-week notices of resignation at our places of work two weeks before our wedding day so that we could start full-time deputation the moment we returned from our honeymoon, as we believed God was leading us to do. Everyone, including us, thought we were crazy. However, the Lord showed Himself faithful, and we are still thriving, by His grace, on the deputation trail!

We opened the month of May with a Missions Conference in Thorp, Wisconsin. My wife and I benefited greatly from this conference, as the pastor and his wife there were veteran missionaries to Madagascar. By the end of the conference, two young ladies had decided to surrender to the mission field! Immediately following the conference was this year’s Candidate School at our missions agency, FBMI. We had the privilege of being a part of it this year with many of our friends from college. Pictured on the right are the families sent out from our sending church, Faith Baptist Church of Wildomar, California! The Bull family, standing on the far right of the photo, will be joining us in Osaka for their first term, and we have plans to serve together once on the field. Please pray for these families as they prepare to embark on their journeys of faith!

In the midst of running around the Midwest, we were given great news from the West Coast. On the 16th, we received a phone call from the church in Escondido, California, letting us know that they had voted to partner with us financially! Just a few days after that on the 20th, we received another phone call from Brentwood, California, informing us that their church will be partnering with us as well! This is the second church in the city of Brentwood that has now partnered with us. We are grateful to these churches for making a decision of faith to partner with us in His Great Commission.

We finished off the month of May at the correctional facility located in Marysville, Ohio, participating in an amazing outreach ministry that the church there had with this facility. During our time with that church, I had the opportunity to speak for a part of one of the services and be a part of the invitation for both. Many souls were born again during these revival meetings, and among them, I had the privilege of giving the Gospel to Doug, Ryan, and Joshua, all three of whom placed their faith in Jesus Christ as their Saviour that night! Please pray for these men, as they will be released soon to tell their friends and family what Jesus did for them.

We are excited to report what God did the following weekend with the time we spent at that church—please look forward to the June report for that! As of now, we have over one-third of the financial support we need for Japan. Thank you for an entire year of your prayers and support!

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
