I’m thankful to DesiringGod.org for making this video available for download free of charge.
Michael Oh is a missionary in Japan, he spoke at the 2009 Desiring God conference on the needs for missionaries to support the effort to reach the 10/40 Window with the gospel. Michael’s main theme was that missions is a form of fasting, but also he shares a lot specifically about the spiritual condition of Japan. He also provided provocative facts, I found it very interesting that there is a mega church in South Korea that has more members in it than the total combined number of Japanese Christians in the whole world.
Michael’s message was humorous with inserts here and there about his family. But also he shared about the strong racial tension between Japanese and Koreans as a result of Japan’s atrocities during World War II, how this directly impacted his ancestors, and what it meant for him personally to minister the love of Christ to Japan. I have watched this video several times and encourage all who have an interest in missions to watch it too.
