Rikuzen Takata Christ Church

It was because an american soldier gave me a piece of tract that I went to Mizuho Christ Church & got saved. At Bethel Mission Training Center, I studied the bible & after my studies, I was sent as a missionary pastor at the Tohoku region. There was no church at Iwate prefecture, and we were guided to Rikuzen Takada city, a place called ‘The Tibet of Japan’. It was here that I & my wife Emiko, started our missionary life. In July of 1965 (Showa year40), we started the ‘Tenmaku'(tent) evangelical crusade, and many people got saved. Through God’s amazing power, our new church building was erected & was consecrated on July,1983. We are truly grateful to God for protecting & saving us specially during the Tohoku earthquake, and we strongly believe that He has great plans for our church.
