Featured Missionary

Tony and Marcia Haug
Tony and Marcia Haug

Tony and Marcia moved to Japan in 1989 to plant a church in the Kawanaka area of Shimonoseki. The Shimonoseki Christ Bible Church (SCBC) celebrated Easter this year in the best way possible – with two baptisms in the Japan Sea. They also hosted their annual Easter picnic with 41 children and 30 adults participating.

Over 20 years ago, SCBC purchased a bank building located near the center of Shimonoseki, renovated it, and opened the Shimonoseki Christian Center. At that time Christian bookstores were rare, so part of the building was used for a Christian bookstore. However, with the increasing use of the internet, the effectiveness of a bookstore as a way to meet people seeking spiritual information has diminished. To develop a more millennial-friendly venue, the bookstore is being converted into the Sonrise Coffee Shop, which will provide a place for evangelistic events, Sunday services and other gatherings. Another ministry housed in the Christian Center is the New Beginning International Preschool, which is designed to reach not only children, but their parents and grandparents.

Prayer Requests:
1. For SCBC to shine the light of Christ brightly in a country where less than 1% are evangelical Christians.
2. For New Beginning Pre-School to reach 20 students by April 2018.
3. For Shimonoseki Soul Search, a three-year initiative that seeks to find 300 Japanese who want to know more about God.
