Are you looking for joy in life? As a gifted performer, singing brought Atsushi joy. It also brought him to one of the most unlikely places: a Gospel Choir practice. It wasn’t long before the lyrics he sang opened his eyes to a joy greater than what music alone could provide.

We all have unfulfilled dreams. For Ritsuko, it was finding fame, love, and acceptance. However, when this dream disappeared, a glimmer of hope arose that not only quenched her feelings of despair but provided more love and acceptance than she could ever imagine.

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”.

We all suffer at the hands of other people. In Junko’s case, she was abused as a child and found herself isolated and in deep sorrow. Then, a gradual feeling of love grew in her heart and opened the door to a life that she never knew existed.

Do you struggle in your marriage? Takashi and Naoko did. Their shame and brokenness left their marriage on the brink of total collapse. Then they found true love…not in each other, but in a person that would transform their family completely.

Where were you on March 11, 2011 when the Tohoku earthquake shook Japan? Yuji was at work, and with Tokyo’s power grid shut down, he journeyed on foot across the city to discover a message waiting for him that would change his life forever.

Do you struggle with depression? So did Yumiko. She hated herself and even dreamt of running in front of a train to end her life. But hope came her way in the last place she ever expected.
