From the President

Multitudes, multitudes, in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
— Joel 3:14

On Sunday afternoon, our family went to Harajuku here in Tokyo because I had found a great little Mexican food place. For those of you who live in Japan, you know that finding great Mexican food is no easy task. And, being from California, one of the things we crave most is great Mexican food.

It was the week of Silk’s birthday and the day after Cinco de Mayo, so why not go Mexican for lunch after church! 

As we were walking down the streets, I was overwhelmed by all the people. You can see the pictures here but they don't even do the situation justice. It was wall-to-wall people!

This is a daily slice of life in Tokyo where numerous intersections are just jammed with people. Check out this brief video of Shibuya crossing. Crazy!

And, not far away at Shinjuku station, it is said that more than 3 Million people a day course through the station. The busiest station in the world.

Frequently when heading through the city, I sense the immensity of the prophet Joel’s words: Multitudes in the Valley of Decision. My heart breaks for the lost people of Japan, the second largest unreached people group in the world. I begin praying...

"Lord bring a breakthrough for the Gospel here. May we see a new move of your Spirit in Japan and may many come to know Jesus as their Savior."

Would you join me in this prayer? And, pray about how you can get involved: Consider coming to Japan and serving with us. Check out for more.

There are so many lost people here and how Jesus longs for them to find peace in Him. 

Crying out for the people of Japan!
