Planting Passionate Churches in Each of the Eight Regions of Japan

Category: Deputation

Exciting Progress!

 

Almost all of my mom’s side of the family came from five different states to celebrate my grandmother’s 85th birthday.

God is answering prayers. He is working in hearts to support us by praying and giving. This is exciting progress.

We still have a long way to go until our goal of 100% by the end of March next year. We are now just over 20% of our needed $6600/month to leave for Japan. Our plan for this month is to find more ministry partners in the Greenville, SC area. Please pray God will encourage our brothers and sisters to join our team, not just in prayer but in giving.

Thank you for supporting our ministry through prayer and monthly giving. We appreciate your love and care for us. We are excited and humbled to be working together with you to take the gospel to the many lost in Japan.

If you haven’t joined our team, partner with us in taking the glorious gospel to Japan. Commit to our burden and vision; be a monthly pledge partner, because God has given us what we have to be used for His kingdom (click here and sign up to join our monthly support team).

Let us know of others who may be interested in partnering with us. God has established His church to work together in furthering the Gospel throughout the world. I believe together, through His power, we can reach the millions of lost in Japan and transform the country from the 2nd largest unreached people group to a reached and reaching people group.

If you have any questions please email us (vanningjapan@me.com) or communicate with us on facebook. We look forward to sharing our burden and vision with you.

Love,
Jared and Nozomi

I took this picture a long time ago from the top of Nagoya train station at Christmas time. So many lost souls who have never heard the Gospel.

Taishi’s getting ready to handle the giant cockroaches in Japan. Emi’s happy to just watch Taishi hold it.

God is Working

Back in Travelers Rest, SC after 4 weeks in PA

   God gave us a wonderful trip to Pennsylvania the past four weeks. We were able to share our vision for Japan with many church people in the area I grew up. God blessed! My best friend from grade school introduced me to multiple pastors in the Philadelphia area. God allowed us to work out four more meetings for a return trip in the fall. While in the Pittsburgh area we spoke to the local church that our dear friends minister to. God blessed once again and we received eight pastoral contacts in the area to reach out to and hopefully set up meetings for the fall as well.

Thank you for your prayers! God is answering them above and beyond what we could ever ask or even think. We have heard from multiple churches that are planning to vote to partner with us in the coming months. Many more individuals have told us they want to join our support team. God is working even when our faith is weak. And in His working He grows our faith.

Right now we are at 20% of our needed $7000/month to leave for Japan. Our goal is to be at 100% by the end of March, next year. We are right on track to accomplish that goal! God has been working in the hearts of you, His people, to join our support team. Thank you, friends.

If you haven’t joined our team, I am trusting God to work in your heart to partner with us in taking the glorious gospel to Japan. We need prayer warriors on our team; commit to pray for us regularly (and reply to let us know you are praying). We need giving warriors on our team; commit to our burden and vision by being a monthly pledge partner (click here and sign up to join our monthly support team). We need going warriors on our team; commit to pray about going to help meet the need in Japan (and contact our mission board here to join our team).

If you have any questions please email us (vanningjapan@me.com) or communicate with us on facebook. We look forward to sharing our burden and vision with you.

Love,
Jared and Nozomi

In school Baron and I used to button our top button on our shirts and joke about being “holy men.” Back then didn’t understand that we aren’t holy because of what we do but because of what Jesus has done for us. We both now serve Him because of what He has done for us. God is good all the time.

What an honor it was to preach to the church family I grew up with and to share our vision for future ministry.
