Friends, this is a helpful documentary I recently viewed that is helpful in many ways to reveal some of the deeper Gospel issues that begin to surface when you look at some of the bigger problems facing Japan. The focus is on the declining birth rates in Japan but I think the host does a great job of revealing the various idols that people of Japan are enslaved to. Be it money, power, control, comfort or shame, the Japanese are painting a grand picture of what a disastrous course it is to fully be given over to idolatry.
Please pray for us as we head to Tokyo this weekend. Pray that the spirit would be at work in the hearts of those around us and that we would see Japan through gospel lenses. Pray that through this trip Karis would receive a vision for the future of ministry in Japan.
As the cold, harsh winter finally comes to a close, it’s time to start looking forward to the summer. I wrote at the beginning of the year that we were setting a course for another Japan trip this year. With all of the trip details sorted we are ready to announce the Karis Japan: Tokyo Vision Trip.

This spring we’ll beheading out to Japan. Our destination will be Tokyo where we will spend our time catching a vision for ministry in Tokyo. We’ll meet up with several church planters in Tokyo and talk about what the future of Karis in Tokyo might look like and how we can partner with other churches there to affect gospel change within this great city. This video helps explain our vision for Tokyo.
This is the first is a series of posts that I will write about our trip to Japan this Spring.
