Over the Easter long weekend Caley and I (along with a number of other families in our Church) had the privilege of hosting some young Japanese students while on their cultural exchange. It happened to be over Easter which made it a great time to be able to expose them to the gospel of Jesus. On Easter Sunday I was able to show a number of these students a short video in Japanese about the Easter message. They were also given a Japanese two-ways-to-live booklet.
It seems as though our Church and its members can be a link in helping these Japanese youth to see the true gospel of Jesus and have the opportunity to make friends with real Christians up close and personally. This definitely seems like an opportunity not to be missed. As you may or may not know Japan is the second biggest unreached people group in the world (www.joshuaproject.net). Nearly every Japanese person in Japan will never have the opportunity to hear and understand the gospel of Jesus or meet a true Christian. So it’s a great thing that we can be this link.
This year there will be some more Japanese students being hosted by SCPC families. So this means more Japanese people being exposed to the gospel of Jesus. With this in mind I will try to find some more Japanese Christian resources to be able to put in their hands and that of the host families too for when they come.
Let’s keep praying for these students when they visit that they may come to know Jesus and for their host families to work for this end.
