こんにちは Yutaro. My wife and I have felt called to serve long-term in mission in Japan with an organization called OMF. OMF operates from the Tokyo area and up, and we will be in Hokkaido once we arrive in hopefully EOY 2020. I have always been very interested in apologetics and am so excited and encouraged by the transformation God is bringing to the Japanese people through apologetics. I was so moved at Razi’s time in Japan and the talk he was able to give. We will spend our first term focusing on language and culture studies, but then will transition into a church planter role. I would absolutely love to continue using and being a part of the Christian apologetic community in Japan. We have been able to engage in some very meaningful relationships here with Japanese, and Lord willing, my wife, daughter, and I will be doing that among the Japanese in a couple of years.
OMF, wonderful organization. We had a Missionary retire from OMF in our church. She was and still is wonderful. She speaks our language and continued studying with our people here in our church until she passed away to go home a few years ago. Through OMF she started a school and orphanage for children there. We saw her fruits of her hard work and OMF just last year as we ventured back in to Thailand and see that her places she planted are still thriving today.
I know that you will do great things in Japan. God is good and faithful.
Thank you for the encouraging words!
That is fantastic to hear! I am sorry that your friend and sister is no longer here, but I do rejoice with you that she is now home. It sounds like she left such a wonderful legacy of kingdom work in Thailand! We have been so encouraged by the Lord’s work in east Asia and can not wait to see what is to come.
