Go Oishi

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: Our 100th Church on Deputation

Go Oishi Prayer Letter: Our 100th Church on DeputationPraise the Lord for giving us another year to serve Him! This is an exciting year for us, as, Lord willing, this will be the year that we finish deputation, host the FBMI 2020 Japan Olympic Outreach, and make our final move to Japan. We are looking forward to an amazing year!

My wife and I began 2020 by increasing our weekly missions giving. In addition, the Lord has presented us with a special opportunity to help out our dear friends, the Bull family, as they are in the beginning stages of raising support to work somewhat closely with us in Japan. What a great answer to prayer it is to see more faithful laborers committing their lives to join us in preaching the Gospel to the Japanese people!

Our first meeting of the year took place in Atwater, California, which also was our 100th scheduled meeting since our first presentation in June of 2018. There seems to have been a fluke in our emailing system, as they only learned two weeks before our arrival that we had accepted their invitation six months before to present our ministry to their church. Needless to say, things were not looking ideal as we approached this meeting. The church was gracious enough to allow us to go through with presenting our burden to their people, and much to our surprise, the Lord laid it on their hearts to partner with us that same night! Praise the Lord that He is in control when we are most definitely not!

Soon after leaving California for our next two meetings in Arizona, we received two phone calls: one from someone from my home church in Waterford, Michigan, which I have not spoken to since high school, and another from someone we have never met, both letting us know that they have prayerfully decided to begin sending us monthly individual support! More and more, we are realizing that God often blesses in the most unexpected circumstances, and that it is always worth it to stay faithful, come what may!

We spent a total of 2½ hours going soul winning in Arizona. Unfortunately, I became very ill before our second meeting there and had to cancel our presentation. However, I was still well enough when we first arrived in town to go door knocking, and during that time, I had the privilege of leading a lady named Alejandra to the Lord! She was someone who had faced very unique and difficult trials in the last few months, and her heart was very open and tender to receive the message of hope as a result. Praise the Lord that perhaps our purpose of being there was for this particular soul all along!

From there, we traveled back to present our ministry to a Spanish church in Long Beach, California. They, too, voted to partner with us the same night we presented at their church! We then went back through Arizona to present our ministry at a church on the Hopi Reservation, and then we traveled to our final meeting of the month in Moab, Utah. While spending an hour of door knocking at that church, we had the privilege of meeting a lady named Katinka. After much confusion in her life going to various churches and hearing various messages, Katinka heard the true Gospel that night and ended up getting saved! These are all fruits that are added to your account. Thank you for your faithful part in our ministry!

Your friends and co-laborers to Japan,

Go and Danielle Oishi
