Osaka, Japan

(OH-sah-kah) – Pray for the results of all the seeds that were planted during Christmas season in Osaka this year. A new church plant did Christmas caroling near their church and handed out 400 tracts! The same church held a Christmas concert, and many unsaved friends came and heard a very clear presentation of the gospel. Another church had volunteer teams canvas the surrounding neighborhoods by putting tracts into mailboxes, and they had 15 visitors come to the church because they got a tract or met team members doing ministry with volunteer teams. Another church did a children’s Christmas party and had a violin and piano concert for Christmas Eve. There were 88 people at the Christmas Eve service and 44 of them were not church members. Praise God for all the seeds that were planted and for the new relationships that were made. Pray that those who visited the church will continue attending and one day come to know Christ as Savior and Lord.
