Notes
:

OM Miyagi team is steadily growing, and we have a great expectation for what God wants to do in this part of Japan. Our city has very little Christians, with hardly any children or youth in the churches. Come and join us to reach out, sow the seed of the gospel, and share the victorious, abundant life of a Christian to our Japanese friends.
