In recent years, God has placed a vision in the heart of one of our staff to establish a branch of our mission in Japan. Today, there is a Jewish community in Japan that numbers a few thousand. Most of them are Israelis or Jewish people from Russia or the United States who are working or studying in Japan. There are also three active Chabad Orthodox houses there. Two of them are active synagogues.
Over a period of several years, our missionary has labored to realize this vision of extending Chosen People Ministries’ reach to Japan. Just a few days ago, our missionary held the first team meeting consisting of Japanese and Jewish believers to fulfill the vision of bringing the good news of Jesus the Messiah to the Japanese Jewish community.
Please keep this new team and their goals in your prayers. Pray that God will not only bring the gospel to Jewish people in Japan, but that our team connects with churches in Japan to equip and enrich them with a deeper understanding of the Bible from a Jewish perspective.
