Report from: Christ For The Nations Japan Bible School

March 17, 2011

Report from: Christ For The Nations Japan Bible School

When the earthquake hit us on Friday afternoon at CFN Japan Bible School, the whole building swayed like we were on a large ship. We felt “seasick” even after the quake, but thankfully there has been no damage. We have been getting emails from CFNJ graduates around the country, especially from the affected areas, and as far as we know, everyone is safe. But several students have family and friends in the affected area that they have not been able to get in touch yet. 
I have been told that CFNI graduate Pastor Thomas Davis has evacuated from his home in Iwaki city, hard hit by tsunamis and also not far from the atomic power plant that is in a crisis situation. Please keep these people in your prayers

Iwaki City, one of the cities where the earthquake and tsunami has hit is also only about 50 km away from the Fukushima Nuclear plant. Everyone arrived at Christ For The Nations Japan Bible School in tears of relief and thankfulness to be in a safe and warm place. They hadn’t had a bath for 3 or 4 days, and that’s pretty unthinkable for a cleanly Japanese!

Kiyonori’s Family Have Accepted Christ
Kiyonori Sakamoto and his wife Lena have been studying at CFN Japan since September last year. They were very worried about their family living in Iwaki City under the threat of radiation. So with permission from CFN Japan Bible School, they invited the family to come and stay at CFNJ as evacuees.

Since the earthquake and the threat of radiation, and Kiyonori sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to them, all the family members in this photo have accepted Jesus Christ into their lives! From that point on, they started experiencing miracles of provision of water and other necessities plus being able to obtain air tickets to Hokkaido, where CFNJ is. God is good! The family is looking forward to attending church on Sunday, and they are considering getting baptized.

A Harvest of Souls
God is working speedily at this time folks, and we ask you to pray for the harvest of souls. We sense a tremendous spiritual battle going on over souls in Japan. It is time the spiritual strongholds over Japan to be broken, idols to fall, false Gods to be exposed and torn down, so that the captives of Japan can be set free.

Dear Praying Friends, the greatest contribution you can give to Japan is to pray for souls to be saved, be built up, equipped and even sent out to the harvest field around the world! Like Moses of old, please keep your hands of prayer up for Japan. We’re going to win this one with the Lord on our side!

We have been able to help the Sakamoto family with money for food. As donations for the earthquake relief work comes in, we are planning to send the funds to churches and Christian relief organizations working in the hardest hit areas.
