Thank you for the blessing of God that came to us through your support and prayers these past four years. We began this church plant six years ago, lacking in both finances and sometimes doubting our mission. I thank every person who has continually prayed for the Edogawa Shion church and my family. We praise the Lord for sustaining our church.
Looking back, these four years that I have walked with White Fields have been very blessed. Being supported and prayed for by believers in Korea, Japan, and overseas churches we have never even met, has caused our church to grow, bit by bit. I am thrilled to report that these prayers have produced an acceptance of our church by the local community. I do not doubt that it is due to God’s protection and your prayers that this church plant has grown. We began with just our family, in a place no one had ever heard of, to now having a functional church.
Edogawa Shion Church will continue to raise people in the faith to worship the only true God. We will do our best to be salt and light in the Edogawa community. I thank God for His guidance so far and pray that He will continue to protect the ministry’s work. Please continue to pray for us. Once again, I express our sincere gratitude to the brothers and sisters of White Fields.
Pastor Jean Pillan Testimony
Greetings, my name is Jeon, and I am a church planter in the suburb of Edogawa, Tokyo. In my early years, I grew up in South Korea. When I was an elementary school junior, I knew about God from the Catholic Church. All I knew was God was very great, and he created the earth, I knew God with knowledge, but I didn’t know God’s truth.
In my second year of senior high school, I started attending Chuuan Presbyterian Church; it was here I was able to learn about the Lord. I was taught about creation, the old testament, why Jesus needed to come to earth and his eventual death and resurrection on a cross for my sins.
I still did not place my faith and trust in Jesus though. I applied for admission to a local university, shortly after that I received a letter stating that my application was rejected, here at my lowest point I encountered the God of the universe. I attended a summer camp through a youth association, while there I placed my faith and trust in Jesus Christ. I am so glad that I did!
