Love Japan

FCBC’s very first Gideonite team, made up of former Team Pastors, Pastors Caleb and Christina Chan, as well as Liu Pek Kuan and Victoria Lim departed Singapore to serve the people of Kesennuma City, in Japan’s Miyagi prefecture on 25 August 2013. This city was completely devastated by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in March 2011 that took many lives and caused massive damage to the land and its people.

Our Gideonite team has been released to offer relief while introducing the gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Kesennuma. Their goal as pioneers of the Gideonite church-planting mission is to pave the way for future Gideonite teams and fulfill Jesus’ Great Commission – to go and make disciples of all nations!
