How one Japanese congregation responded to the COVID-19 pandemic 

Rev. Yoshiya (Joshua) Hari

WHEN I TALKED TO PASTOR YOSHIYA (JOSHUA) HARI, THE NATIONAL DIRECTOR FOR ASIAN ACCESS JAPAN, his church had already been dealing with its own crisis before the coronavirus came. After over 20 years in the same location, in 2019 the congregation of Saikyo Hope Chapel was told they had to vacate the building they were leasing because it would be demolished. Finding a similar facility for the same price proved to be extremely difficult, so from February 2, 2020, they found themselves alternately renting one of two local community centers for services each Sunday.

Japan (MNN) — In January 2020, a group of believers in Japan lost their church building. Little did they know, God would use their “temporary solution” as a growth point when the pandemic turned the world upside-down.

Happy New Year, Dear Friends!

This post is a little later than I had hoped because our family was hit with the coronavirus variant over the holidays. We are deeply grateful for your prayers and appreciate you for the way we journey together in life and mission.

God continues to move during a challenging year

2021 has been challenging for everyone, but God was continuously at work. Here are a few of our top stories from 2021 which help us remember His faithfulness through the past year.

Thank you for your partnership in prayer and giving that made these stories a reality!

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights.”
— James 1:17

A2 merry christmas 2021

Merry Christmas Everyone!

The Christmas season each year highlights our heavenly Father's demonstrated love for us in sending his Son, the Light of the World. We are reminded that God initiates first and then invites us to respond to his love. And the incarnation of Immanuel­—God with us­—is the best and most perfect gift from above.

Asia (MNN) — The first COVID-19 case surfaced in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. Several variants and a pandemic classification later, the battle seems never-ending.
