Fewer Foreign Residents in Japan for First Time In 48 Years – Japan Real Time – WSJ

It’s interesting to see the decline of foreigners in Japan. This is bad for Evangelism because there has been a decrease in missionaries as well since the 80′s. TEAM, with whom we served, saw 2 surges into Japan. One directly after the 2nd World War ended, and then a second wave in the 1980′s. Many of those who came in the 40′s and 50′s have now retired or been promoted to Heaven. As a result, TEAM has seen a sharp decline in missionaries in recent years. According to this article they are not alone. Due to the high cost of living, many who want to go are still stuck in their home country raising support. But our God is not limited by finances. Let’s pray for a new wave of missionaries to be able to come and serve Christ in Japan!
