Japan

Less than 1% of Japan’s 126 million know Jesus.

By God’s grace we aim to see a vibrant church impacting every community.

The Task Unfinished in Japan

Nearly 500 towns or villages don’t have a church. Only about 0.45% of the people in areas where OMF works are Christians.

God is at work in Japan, but we long for many more to be reached for Jesus. Be part of what God is doing and join us in praying for and serving the Japanese.

In East Asia there are

667 MILLION people

without access to the gospel.

God specialises in the unexpected

Who is the most unlikely and unexpected people group to share the Gospel with Japanese people? Perhaps Chinese. Yet God is doing a surprising thing in Japan.

Working as English teachers in Japan

Because of the positions we are in, we’ve become friends with many of the surrounding English teachers. We’ve also become involved in our local church.

Not all Japanese people wear black suits

Mr. Saiba always answered my questions about Japanese culture, but he also said that while most Japanese people acted that way, but he didn’t.

Missionaries need holidays too

Coming here for a few days, a couple times a year has been a huge blessing and I think it has helped me stay the long haul—long-term missionary in Japan
