A relationship with God begins with a simple invitation.
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.

The Japanese Film Series
Responding to God’s leading, we filmed six Japanese testimonies and created an interactive Prayer Guide to serve the people of Japan. The Japanese films are meant to encourage Christians and engage non-Christians within the nation, and our Prayer Guide is designed to inspire worldwide prayers for Japan, where 99% of the residents don’t know Jesus.
