Japan Baptist Conference (JBC) Youth

It is my pleasure to be part of the youth committee for the JBC. In January we had our winter gathering in Ise. Ise is the home of our first JBC missionary work as well as the main Shinto shrine for Japan. At our winter gathering we studied about the greatness of our true God and then visited part of the Shinto shrine to learn about the worship of false gods. We pray the young people were encouraged to hold fast to their faith in Jesus as the true Savior.

Developing a Discerning Heart

Two or three times a year at Komyo Christian Church we have been hosting seminars for the ladies of the JBC and area churches. Last summer we began a series, “Developing a Discerning Heart,” based on a class which Yuri Nakano and I attended. It has been exciting to see the ladies inviting their friends, studying God’s Word together, and deepening their faith. We pray that we can continue to study together and maybe even expand to other JBC churches.

I will be heading to the U.S. for home assignment this fall. I will be available for church visits from October 15, 2017 through June 10, 2018. I look forward to sharing with all of you about how God has been at work over these past three years in Japan, specifically at Komyo Christian Church!

Soli Deo Gloria,
Shan in Japan
