JAPAN MINISTRY and SEMINAR REPORT!
April 2003 Volume XXXX No. 8

Leaving Belarus, we flew from Minsk to Frankfurt, Germany, then Chicago to Tokyo and finally to Osaka, Japan. There we had a meeting and the next day flew to Okinawa, Japan. The weather was perfect in Okinawa.

 God has given us favor on this island. The people are not only friendlier but seem more open to the Gospel. We had wonderful ministry with testimonies of those who received during our ministry the previous year.


TONY PRESENTING SISTER YOSHIKO SENSEI.

One highlight of the ministry took place when we ordained Pastor Yoshiko Ito who has had a wonderful soul-winning, church planting ministry for 25 years in Okinawa.


MARGE, YOSHIKO AND HER 83 YEAR OLD MOTHER WHOM SHE BAPTISED.

The next day after our Sunday morning service, she held her first Baptismal service. The very first person she baptized was her 83-year-old mother. The baptism took place in the China Sea.


OUR BAPTISMAL SERVICE IN THE CHINA SEA, A BEAUTIFUL LOCATION OFF THE OKINAWA COAST.
THE SPIRIT OF GOD WAS WONDERFUL!


 

The most well known Gospel singer in Japan is Reiko who has sung in our meetings along with Marge.

She too has an 83-year-old mother who was baptized as well. It was a beautiful time of blessing as many were baptized.

It was also a great testimony to all who witnessed the scene.  The whole church gathered by the sea and many unbelievers were there seeing these precious Japanese saints follow the Lord in Water Baptism.

MARGE AND REIKO, BOTH ANOINTED GOSPEL SINGERS.


Tony Abram WITH CUBAL SENSEI, HIS LIFE WAS SPARED AS A KAMAKZI PILOT IN WW II.

We also met with some Japanese ministries and made plans for future ministry in Okinawa.

We want to have an Island Wide Mass Crusade in this part of Japan someday soon. We left Okinawa by plane and then flew to Kansai, Japan where we took the boat to the island of Awaji for a few days with our Associate Evangelists Jim and Darla Snipe who are our representatives in Japan. Jim is also on our International Board of Advisers. They took us to Inagawa for ministry and the National Seminar for Church School Outreaches.

One of Marge?s themes was her teaching on ?Cultural Differences.? I taught on ?Evangelism through Church School Ministry? and ?Discipleship through Church School Ministry.?

I must confess that these were new subjects for me. I had to spend quite some time in study and research. (It was during this time that police notified the local churches in Japan that Marge and I were terrorist targets. However, God took care of us. Praise God!)


Tony Abram teaches leaders on Evangelism.

 The lives of workers and ministers from many parts of Japan were blessed during this seminar. It was the anointing of the Lord that brought the blessing on the Word and ministry God had given to us.

All Glory to God!

Working with Aoki sensei and his dear Yumiko sensei is always a great joy and blessing. They are dedicated to the Work of God. One of the titles given to us in Japan is ?The greatest couple in the whole world.? However, we think the Aokis are a great couple, having given their all to the Lord Jesus.

We believe Revival is coming to Japan. We feel that is why God keeps having us come back to Japan, sometimes twice a year. God is using us to plant much seed and I believe is some small way we are helping prepare for the coming Outpouring of the Holy Spirit


Healed by Jesus Power!


The young praise God!


Marge teaches the Word of God!

We know we are doing the Commission of Jesus found in
  • Mark 16:15 "And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature".

Thank you for your part in helping Marge and I take the Gospel to so many parts of the world over the many years of Missionary Evangelism.

  • Mat 28:18 "And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth".
  • Mat 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them??.
  • Mat 28:20 "Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world."

Amen.
God bless you. Tony & Marge.
