Learning

Partnership in mission begins with an interest in missions.  That's why you're reading this, right?  By learning about missions you learn to see the world as God sees it and love the people of the world as he loves them.  Learning about Japan will help you grow in your love for the people of Japan.  Our hope is that God will create a longing in those who visit this website to help the people of Japan come to know Jesus.  There are many helpful resources available on the Internet.  I have listed a few of these with links below.  You may also benefit by reading missionary biographies, taking a class in missions at your church or Christian college, or getting to know a missionary personally.  Some churches offer the Perspectives on the World Christian Movement course or something similar for those who want an in-depth study of missions.
