1.3 billion East Asian people do not know Christ. God wants to change that! Through prayer, you can have a vital part in His work among the East Asian Peoples.
July 30, 2015
North Tokyo, Japan International Service Corps worker Brian Goodwin was given a rare opportunity to share his testimony with a class of Japanese high school students in Tokyo. He spoke of how attending church in high school and eventually following Jesus had given him purpose and taken away his loneliness. After he finished speaking, students were asked to write down their questions about his story. Some questions were practical: "What do you do at church?" Some were more scrutinizing: "How can you be so sure that God created us?" One student wrote, "I feel the same as Brian. I feel alone sometimes. . . . Will I still feel alone even after I follow Jesus?" Japanese students yearn to know more about Jesus and what life with Him looks like, but they rarely have the opportunity to ask a Christian their questions. Ask the Father for more workers for the harvest field who will engage students and challenge them to wrestle with these questions. Pray that these students will continue to ask questions about who Jesus is and what it means to follow Him. Pray that they will seek and find Him.
Prayer remains a vital part of reaching East Asian Peoples for Christ, and is a viable way for a vast number of believers to take part in the fulfillment of the Great Commission as it pertains to reaching East Asian Peoples. Our prayer resources provide free booklets and free printable downloads of prayer booklets that profile unreached cities and people groups in East Asia. We hope you will partner with us as we seek to impact the spiritual destiny of East Asian Peoples.
