Japan FAQs

Why Japan?

Several reasons why we feel called to Japan?

  • Japan has 127 million people, but 99.5% don't know Christ.
  • Japan needs Jesus Christ, the Hope of the World. (Incidentally, Nozomi's name means "hope" in Japanese.)
  • Nozomi is Japanese and Jeff has served as a missionary in Japan for a couple years immediately after college.
  • Japan needs church planting models to help gain momentum toward reaching the nation for Christ. Jeff and Nozomi have church planting experience.
  • We were invited to be part of a church plant headed up by a Japanese church leader and invested four years to work in sharing Christ with the unchurched.
  • The family in Japan is hurting and is disintegrating. We tried to model a healthy family in Japan.
  • Plus many more reasons we'll explore later.
