Izumi Church was planted in 2009 in an area of 30,000 people in the city of Sapporo. The church is slowly growing and we are seeing increasing numbers of non-Christians coming along to events and hearing the gospel. Over the next few years we expect, God willing, to need to move out of our current (rented) premises, which will mean buying some land and erecting a church building. This is expensive in Japan, and though the church is saving towards that, we are a very long way off being able to afford what we would need. A permanent Church building in Hiragishi would be a wonderful base for long-term ministry here.
