Shortly following March 11th's Triple Disaster in Japan, Steve Moore from The Mission Exchange called this "Japan's Hour" in a special webinar entitled Global Status of Japan Disaster where Asian Access was interviewed in light of the horrific tragedy impacting the country. Surely enough, this moment is proving to be "Japan's Hour" for Christ. Churches and missionaries have provided relief and comfort week after week throughout the affected areas and continue serving to this day. It is amazing to watch and see…
One church that formerly had only ten regular attenders (all in their later years of life) has seen their average attendance skyrocket to 30-50 people on a consistent basis since Easter Sunday and is now gearing up to baptize 10 new followers of Christ.
As believers have been providing aid throughout the region, local people are saying, "Grandma Jesus is here!" and "Jesus has brought us food!" What a wonderful expression of the love of Christ as churches and missionaries reach out to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
The crying need we keep hearing is, "We need more churches!" In order to meet the needs of the people, we need more centers to be the 'hands and feet of Jesus': churches launched to be a light to the community and sources of hope and healing in providing aid to their neighbors.
- Will you pray that more churches would be started?
- Will you consider going to help us come alongside pastors and assist them in starting new churches?
- Will you give to provide the means of fueling this "Japan's Hour for Christ"?
For His Kingdom,
