Hello brothers and sisters in Christ,
Greetings everyone; in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
In August of 2017 I completed a mission trip to Africa, and from there I went back to Europe for more mission work, and stayed for 1 month. Later, in the first week of October, I flew back to Japan to do more ministries in Asia. “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever.” Psalm 136:1 Witnessing to others means being there for them and going through life and being present for one another. We serve a loving God who didn’t design sharing your faith as terms to condemn each other. You can spread God’s love and joy by approaching witnessing with the right attitude and state of mind.
2 Timothy 1:8 “Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God,”
Europe: I visited Sergei who serves as a Missionary in Hamburg and also prayed for his friend and received healing.
Also, I encouraged a sister in Hamburg, because she was discouraged because of “legalistic Jewish Christians”. I visited the town of Luedenscheid, where I met two young German gentlemen who hosted me there. I preached to them the word of God and prayed for them.
On the 10th of September I preached in Nuevo Pacto Church, in Zoetermeer, Netherlands in Spanish. Its good, that I speak Spanish. It was nice blessed service. On the Way back to Netherlands I witnessed to people on the train in Germany, and others in Holland as well.
Sharing your faith begins with honoring Christ in your heart. God will prepare your mind and give you the words to speak, but you first have to give Him your heart. Keep giving Christ your heart each day and He will continue opening doors for you to share His love with others.

Later, I gave some counselling to my Host, where I stayed 10 days in Zoetermeer. She was a Ukraine-Netherland woman; whom YHWE had spoken some good things to about me.
At this time, again a service in the Ezekiel Church-Holland. Why do so few
European Christians evangelize? I preached to them, the heart of God for the “lost”. Sorry for the blurry photos that a sister made for me .. I actually wanted to go back to Japan sooner, but I was always stopped by a massive diarrhea, which I took from our Africa mission trip. That’s why I went to Tropeninstitut-Holland, because the diarrhea did not go away. (It lasted over a month and I was very weak). The doctors could not help me either, so I screamed at YHWE, and I told him what it would be like to go to heaven now?, (that’s better) He answered, and said “quite easy and gentle” to me : “Go to the Healing Rooms in Amsterdam”. Immediately the devil wanted to stop me, by a somewhat “legalistic sister who spoke strongly to me:” That can not be of Jesus “, … why do some Christians not know the Holy Spirit and his work? in YHWE’s will, there is much to learn in the kingdom of God. I did not let the devil stop me, drove to the healing rooms, and was healed. Praise the Lord!
After that, I still prayed for a Dutch sister who was afflicted by daemons, and she felt much better afterwards. My Europe Tour was over, it was already winter, and after that, we went back to Japan.
Mission in Japan-Fujiyoshida:
Psalm 25:4-5: Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. On October 10th 2017, I shared my testimony in Fujioshida Full Gospel Church.We prayed for Nattak, who was immediately cured of a physical heart problem. I also preached to new church workers.
Nattaka is healed-he is happy 🙂
We also prayed for Nattak’s mother. She was touched by the Holy Spirit, she felt warmth, her big growth on her neck shrunk to half its size. We thanked God for an amazing healing done upon her.
Many Shinto shrines in Fujiyoshida
Matthew 24:14. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
On the 14th of October, 2017, we conducted a Bible study. What a privilege it is to lead a Bible study! And what joy and excitement await you as you delve into the Word of God and help others to discover its life-changing truths. People were blessed. They learned more about the word of God through this Bible study class.
On the following day, the 15th of October, I preached the word of God in Fujioshida Full Gospel Church. We prayed for Nakata, who was healed from a physical heart disease. We praised and worshipped God together. According to the word of Henry Martyn: “The spirit of Christ is the spirit of missions. The nearer we get to Him, the more intensely missionary we become.” “We must be global Christians with a global vision because our God is a global God.” By John R.W. Stott
Grace Church-Fuji City:
Later, on the 22nd of October, I went and preached in Grace Church in Fuji City. People were blessed.
Grace Church Fuji City-Pastor Jorgen, a Swedish Pastor in Japan
On 26th of October I visited Aokigahara (Suicide Forest). Aokigahara, also known as the Suicide Forest, or Sea of Trees, is a forest on the northwestern flank of Japan’s Mount Fuji. Pastor Toshio, Yoko, and I prayed there and interceded in the Aokigahara Suicide Forest at the foot at Mt. Fuji. People say, this forest is haunted. In the past years, many people had killed themselves in this forest or did not find their way out anymore and died. Because of ironlava stone, compasses or GPS do not work well in this forest. We prayed so hard for a man who passed us in a yellow shirt, whom I thought, is not “normal”. We broke the curse over this Forest and proclaimed the Lordship of Jesus Christ over this Forest. Also we commanded the demons in this Forest to leave. And asked God to fill the Forest with his Angels. We prayed and asked God to come over and rule by the Holy Spirit. God answered our prayers. So, from now on we can no longer call it a Suicide Forest, but we can call it a Forest which is full of the life and glory of Christ. Amen!
“Rejoice always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances; for
this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.
