Demo Tutorial/Cover of "Jesus" by Chris Tomlin

Greetings from Japan!

I have been excited about this new song by Chris Tomlin since I found out about it because... it is explicitly about Jesus.

Many of you know that I and my family are evangelical missionaries in Japan. I use music as a part of my ministry here to share Jesus. This is a song I can sing and use to share testimonies about my Savior. As you listen to or play this song, I want you to remember Japan.

Japan is a country of about 127 million people where only 1/2 of 1% know Jesus. It is an unreached people group where most have not even heard the name of Jesus. Many of the ones who have heard His name are afraid to put their trust in Him because it might interfere with relationships they have with family and friends because of generations of Buddhist tradition. There are many other barriers to the gospel in Japan that I will not go into here.

Jesus, our Creator and Savior, is the answer to life's problems. "He stands in the fire beside us. He carries our healing in His hands."
I want to ask you to pray with me that the Japanese people might come to Him. The only way to tear down spiritual strongholds is through prayer. Here is a link to the imb.or/pray page and specific requests for Japan:
Pray For the Japanese

If you decide you want to share Jesus with Japanese personally as a volunteer missionary click the "Go" button on that same page and then click "mission trip resources" at the top of the page. You will be given information about how you can do a short-term mission trip.

ありがとうございます (Thank You Very Much),
