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: Doing the Work While on Deputation

Go Oishi Prayer Letter: Doing the Work While on DeputationHow great is our God! April has brought us great showers of blessings, both in terms of souls won and partners gained. We are thrilled as always to report to you the results brought by your faithful giving and fervent prayers!

When presenting to a church, it is somewhat unusual for that church to take us on the same day of that meeting. This is even more unusual if that meeting was scheduled on a midweek service. However, God has allowed this to happen two weeks in a row at the beginning of this month! We began our lineup of meetings in April in Grove City, Ohio, on Wednesday, the 3rd. Here we were able to meet many missionaries this great church is sending out. What an honor it was to be a part of their services, as it is our vision to send out missionaries from the churches God will have us to plant one day in Japan! That church voted to take us on right when my wife and I thought the service was over! On the following Wednesday, we presented our burden to a church in Smiths Creek, Michigan; they voted to partner with us at the very beginning of their evening service! Hallelujah to a God Who still provides!

My wife and I always enjoy going soul winning with every church that invites us to present. However, this month brought extra excitement in our soul- winning endeavors, as we were able to go soul winning with churches that were preparing for big days for Easter Sunday! What a privilege it was to be a part of the preparations for seven different big Easter Sundays this year! While out soul winning in Bridgeport, Michigan, a young man named Charles, as well as a lady named Sarah, trusted Jesus as their Saviour! They and many others promised to be a part of the Easter services at that church! We were told that they had one of the greatest turnouts in their history of Easter services.

Right after Easter Sunday, my wife flew out to our sending church in Wildomar, California, to attend their annual Ladies’ Conference. If you ever happen to get a seat next to my wife on an airplane, it is guaranteed that you will get witnessed to! On her way there, she was able to lead a lady named Amy to the Lord! While my wife was away, I did my first solo meeting in Green Bay, Wisconsin. After three hours of unresponsive doors while out soul winning there, I was able to meet a lady named Tawney, who ended up trusting Jesus as her Saviour! Just a few doors after that, I met a man named John, who told me that he had gotten away from the Lord and was praying that God would send someone his way to invite him to church. This all happened on the fourth hour of door knocking, and I am glad the Lord kept me going! These are all people potentially added to their local churches; please pray as these churches follow up on these newly saved souls!

In the midst of all of this, two phone calls came at the end of this month bearing good news. The churches in Goodrich, Michigan, and Volinia, Michigan (mentioned in the March praise report), voted to take us on for support! Thank you for all your prayers, which make all of these things possible!

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
