THE TIME IS NOW:

A GREAT NEED MEETS A GREATER OPPORTUNITY

Japan is a beautiful country with rich traditions and a vibrant culture. The Japanese people are courteous, hard-working, and innovative, which is why it has become one of the most prosperous and technologically advanced nations in the world.

Despite this growth, a majority of the Japanese people are overworked, depressed, and far from Jesus. However, where there is great need for the Gospel in Japan, there is great access to its people due to the nation’s vast consumption of online media.

Cultural Struggles In Japan:

DEPRESSION

The conservative estimate is that 1 in 5 Japanese people will experience depression. 1 in 12 elementary school pupils suffer from depression while, at the middle-school level, it may be as high as 1 in 4.

SUICIDE

Due to a growing epidemic of depression and pressure to perform, almost 30,000 people commit suicide each year. That number does not include the many deaths staged to look like accidents.

Isolation

Due to the pressures of the performance-driven culture, many young people have isolated themselves off from the world. This growing number of people are known as “hikikomori”.

Yumiko

Yumiko is a married mother who hated life and dreamed of running in front of a train to make her suicide look like an accident. In a final effort to relieve herself from her debilitating depression, she attends a Christian church where she meets a God whose deep love for her, despite all her brokenness and pain, changes her life.

Atsushi

As a gifted singer drawn to anywhere he could perform, Atsushi finds himself in one of the most unlikely places: a Gospel Choir. It isn’t long before he gives his life to Christ and begins leading his own choir to share the new life he has found with others.

Ritsuko

All Ritsuko wanted in life was to become famous in order to find love and acceptance. This dream soon disappeared. However, after a failed suicide attempt, she meets Jesus and her need for love and acceptance is finally found in Him.

Yuji

On March 11, 2011, a magnitude-9 earthquake shook northeastern Japan, sending shockwaves throughout the country and into the life of Yuji. With Tokyo’s power grid shut down, Yuji is forced to journey home by foot. At the end of that 12-hour walk, God calls him into a new life of sharing Christ with the lost.

Junko

Junko was sexually abused as a child and with no one to share her sorrow and pain, she plummeted into despair and emotional isolation. However, after attending a Gospel Choir class, everything changes. She finally realizes that she is known and loved by a God who would transform her life forever.

Takashi and Naoko

Takashi and Naoko’s sin and brokenness left their family on the brink of total collapse. However, when they both meet Jesus, God begins to reveal to them the peace and joy of living lives submitted to the Word of God and the authority of Christ.
