We enter a partnership with the Hengeveld's in 2014 who are missionaries to Japan. Japan is the 2nd largest unreached people group in the world. Out of 127 million souls, less than 0.5% are Christians. 30,000 people die each year of despair. There are approximately 600 suicides per week. While Japan is well developed, they are spiritually impoverished and in desperate need of The Way, The Truth, and The Life.
The Hengeveld's desire is to embed ourselves in the community by being creative and ground-breaking in our ministry. They want to actively reach out and pursue relationships in order to open doors for the gospel.
They serve in the SonRise Cafe in downtown Tokyo. This cafe has a lively atmosphere 6 days a week with music, paintings, sculptures, and of course - great food and coffee. The cafe also hosts SonRise Church on Sunday Mornings where we will begin helping with the worship music.
