More than 3 billion people have never heard of Christ worldwide. The first part of ZOE’s mission is to reach as many people living without hope and in darkness with the life-transforming message of Jesus.
ZOE reaches every person by bringing the good news and training followers of Jesus. One of the countries ZOE does evangelistic work in Japan. Considered to be the second largest unreached people group in the world, this means that there are not enough Christians locally for the gospel to spread organically. There is only one church for every 16,700 people, compared to 1 church for every 800 in the USA.
Recently, ZOE Japan had the opportunity to participate in the annual Church Planting Institute conference, where they joined approximately 200 participants who are passionately working to plant more churches, evangelize, and disciple the nation of Japan with creative God-given ideas.
Many people visited the ZOE booth to pick up educational content about child trafficking and learn more about the free online testimony resources at thegoodnews.jp. Our ZOE Japan team speaks at different venues, such as schools, churches, and social clubs, to share the gospel and teach kids and adults about the danger of human trafficking and how to prevent it.
Thank you for your steadfast prayers and for opportunities like this to forge new relationships and share the good news of the gospel in Japan!
