"...Those who honor me I will honor..."

1 Sm 2:30

"And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men"

Cl 3:23


The time has finally come. We have made the move from Tokyo to Nagasaki!

Once in history, Nagasaki was the door through which the Gospel arrived in Japan. The Heavens were open over this area! The Good News spread rapidly, like fire, but eventually was put out - with the blood of hundreds of faithful men and women. We believe God has not forgotten the sacrifice of these martyrs and will still honor their faithfulness. He has called us to this very place to preach Jesus. We said YES to His call. 

Come with us and let us proclaim that He is not dead but is surely alive!

We hope to count on your prayers and partnership this year!

Joshua, Dominique, Israel, Johann, Olivia, Annaliese and Serenity

2021 Praise and Prayer Requests

After 3 years in Machida, Tokyo, we were able to move to Nagasaki on May 10th. Now the kids have a (small) yard and a trampoline to use their energy. Yay!!! If you know Japan, you understand how valuable that is. 😉 

Since the move, so much has been happening. It's almost like "Nagasaki was waiting for us"! Even while we were still trying to get our house settled, we kept meeting people. We were like: "Are Nagasaki people that friendly or is it God's favor?" We suspect it's both!

We have already built some good relationships with servants of God in the area, have had many kids from our kids' schools over to play, have gone for picnics and done activities with people we are reaching out to and God is building some incredible connections that makes us already dream about the first church in Nagayo -- soon!  We are now working on the strategies and operations, but there are many obstacles to starting a "religious activity" in public areas. Renting places for worship is not a simple task... and Covid restrictions do not help.

Thank you for being a part of this church planting team. This is YOUR work as well! Thank you for your partnership. WE (you and us) are moving forward with this and God is showing He is going before US.

We are always looking to mobilize prayer partners and financial supporters to maintain a healthy budget. If you'd like to join us, get in touch with us! email@tsukayamafamily.com

the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace."
