*Short Video of Memories from the Japan Mission

This mission team will labor with five small congregations to reach out with the gospel and also seek to build relationships with Christian brothers and sisters with the aim of seeing the saints encouraged. Team members will help with several vacation Bible schools, engage in literature distribution, and prepare and lead several Conversational English classes centered around a study of the Bible.

This team will help carry out vacation Bible schools, distribute tracts, attend a Youth Conference, share their testimonies, and present the gospel. Five congregations will benefit from the efforts of this team. A working knowledge of the Japanese language isn’t required (translators can be used) but if participants have some knowledge of the language it will multiply the opportunities to minister on the team.

The following presentation was given by former missionaries, Pastor Bill Sterrett and Kalli Sterrett on the topic of the Culture Shock and Missions. I hope you find it helpful and a great encouragement in advance of your service on a short-term mission trip with RP Missions.
