Japan Christian Link

Japan Christian Link

Japan is one very heathen country. Japan Christian Link is dedicated to promoting the cause of the Gospel amongst the Japanese people.

Their site is very interesting and stocks a range of Japanese language Christian literature.

In July, I will be attending their conference, which I am very much looking forward to.

This is a fascinating work. I suppose most people never really consider a minstry to serve foreign visitors away from their home country. This seems unique to me.

Does your interest provoke any potential for learning the language?

Kc, JCL ministers to Japanese people in their own country as well. The Albanian Evangelical Mission is also an organization which is ethnically orientated, rather than geographically orientated.

I am still struggling with Finnish. I do not want to give up or take up another language too quickly. However, I am conscious that I would have far more opportunities for mission work in Japan than in Finland, which is generally regarded as being a 'sending' country (despite great needs and much godlessness).

I am not gifted at languages.

In my days at my Christian Union, a group of us went to Nagano, Japan for a 2 week mission trip. Yes, Japanese are (generally) rooted firmly in Shintoism. The more modern ones are just like the West, rooted in materialism.

In the village that we were based in, one Christian missionary was there about 5 years before we arrived. The villagers do get the odd JW cult member from time to time as well.

May God raise up more missionaries for that nation. Thanks for the link.

I thought I read that the JCL was specific to those outside Japan while the JED served in country. I may have misunderstood.

I can certainly appreciate the lack of language ability. My Dutch has progressed at a snails pace even with a full time live-in tutor. ;-)

I am, however, fluent in suthern amerikin so if ever the need arises for a translator please y'all give us a holler now, ya heuh? (hehe)

Yes, there are two branches, but they seem to work pretty closely together.

Jenson, yes it is a very needy country spiritually.

Wow, that's great work. I receive a newsletter from a Canadian family ministering in Japan each month in my e-mail.
