Missions Moment – Japan

Posted in: Missions


IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR… after Thanksgiving and before Christmas that we want to express our heartfelt gratitude to you!


Gospel concerts all over Japan
We are in the middle of our December concert series. 5 regional combined concerts all over Japan, dozens of workshops by Ray Sidney, (our ministry partner from Los Angeles, CA), hundreds of rehearsals by the choirs, and many more local concerts. The Gospel will be shared to thousands of Japanese in the audience as they hear about Jesus in song and testimony. The gospel of Jesus Christ lights up like fireworks in this spiritually dark land of Japan.


Gods Love On Wheels (GLOW)… 
Bola coordinates and facilitates the distribution of refurbished wheelchairs in the Philippines donated from Japan. The purpose of GLOW is to give mobility and hope for the gospel through local churches. To learn more about GLOW partners, recipients, and other information, watch or download this GLOW short video/presentation, or pictures and moving stories, visit GLOW on Facebook.


Newest HGF Live CD Release… 
We recorded the all-Japan combined concert last June 15, 2013. There were over 400 in the choir. The title of this CD is Renewal: You must be born again (John 3:7). It is our prayer that many of the choir members will come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior.


Family Update…
Since Japan does not celebrate Thanksgiving, the Tokyo Taylors have made DisneySea as their annual pilgrimage during this holiday. As you see in the picture, we miss Anika and Luke as only Victoria is with us. The good news is that after 2 and a half years, Anika will spend Christmas and New Year with us here in Japan.
Luke will be in the USA for Christmas but will be able to join us in January for a short time.  He is a BIOLA Ambassador blogger. Visit Luke’s blog at luke-t.biolablogs.com.
