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.

Running a cafe in Japan: partnership in mission

Sometimes God surprises us by unexpectedly opening the door into a new ministry partnership. This happened recently when an OMF couple began work in a cafe in Sapporo.

It’s time for a different miracle in Japan

In 1989, at the beginning of the Heisei era, the Japanese economy was booming. Three years later, the bubble burst and Japan’s economy went into recession. Cracks are increasingly appearing in Japan’s prosperous façade, and it’s possible to glimpse the spiritual poverty this country is labouring under.
