Country File: JAPAN
Japan, land of the rising sun is a sovereign island nation that lies in east asia. They say Japan was made by a sword dipped into the ocean. When they pulled it out four perfect drops fell back into the sea, and those drops became the islands of Japan. With only 1% of the population considering themselves Christians, it is virtually an unreached nation. In its early history; Japan was a closed country isolating themselves off from the world. Today, the door is wide open for the gospel to be presented and shared by you.

Feeding Ministry: Kids diners to provide free meals for children who don’t get meals at home.Team members can go, serve food, and play with kids (age 1-13)
