Jesus Loves Japan!!!
Pray for revival and for a mighty move of the Holy Spirit, in all signs and wonders, to ignite and bring to fruition all the many seeds that have been planted there for a great many years!
May the Son of righteousness rise over the land of the rising sun; and may the Japanese people receive healing from His wings…
I would like to introduce you to, and ask you to pray for a young couple I just met; their names are David and Tomo Robison.
They are in the process of making plans to be missionaries in Japan (which is Tomo’s home country), and the plan to move there next summer, in 2011.
I have another friend I would also like you to meet as well, and his name is Yoshiki Okano, who is right now completing his education here in the states, having just graduated from Cal State Fullerton, and is now attending graduate school at Kings College.
Yoshiki will also be returning to Japan in a year or so; where both his parents and his grandparents have churches there; and his grandfather even has a seminary,
I’d like to tell you a little story about Yoshiki. When we first met I told him of a story I heard once at a Promise Keepers convention a few years ago, that was given by a Pastor Kim, who is a Korean pastor.
He told of how during World War II, Japanese soldiers had burned down an entire church with the entire congregation locked inside; and how a Japanese pastor later came with his entire congregation to Korea, from Japan, to make restitution and to apologize for that atrocity.
He went on to say how this Japanese church, with their own funds rebuilt this burned down church, and how a major healing took place as a result.
When I told this story to my friend Yoshiki, he informed me that that was his grandfather who did that; and that he also did the same thing in the Philippians.
Man, what an awesome heritage and anointing that is on this young man, and I would also ask for your prayers for him as well, as he will be returning to Japan as well in a year or so, after he completes his education and training.
I might add that Yoshiki attends a church in San Juan Capistrano, called El Saddai, where I also attend on Saturday evenings.
Japan is in desperate need of revival, with currently less than .02% of their populations being Christian.
Remember these names and keep them on your prayer list, won’t you? Thank you.
