Jesus for Japan 750
OMF ‘From Jesus to Japan’ evening at Hopton chapel 

A chapel in Hopton on the Norfolk border is hosting an evening focused on mission to Japan, a country with the second-largest unreached people group in the world, with an opportunity to meet a family preparing to be OMF missionaries in the Land of the Rising Sun.

On Sunday, October 6 High Street Chapel on the Suffolk/Norfolk border in the village of Hopton is hosting an evening service with the Christian East Asia mission charity OMF called ‘To Japan from Jesus’.

Tim Jenkins, OMF's East UK representative, said: “Japan is a beautiful, technologically-advanced country with a long history and fascinating culture. However, it’s less well known that out of a population of 126 million only 0.3 per cent are evangelical Christians. This makes the Japanese people the second largest unreached people group in the world.

"OMF has worked in Japan for more than sixty years. By God’s grace, we’ve seen dozens of churches planted and many Japanese become Christians. More than 120 OMF missionaries serve in Japan today."

David and Manuela Pawson, along with their daughter Esther, will be speaking during the service about how they are preparing for long-term work in Japan with OMF. They will share how they were called, why they are going to Japan, and why Japan needs Jesus.

The service starts at 6.30 pm.
