Crisis in the Japanese Home

June 2nd, 2010 by John

In this current age of crisis, we are facing major problems in Japanese homes. Society has a major influence on couples and family sexual morals. Abuse and violence are problems in the home. Our mission is to bring recovery to family relationships and to help families grow in a healthy manner. This society does not create a healthy environment for children. While children are growing, they get caught in the pressure of competitive society and there are many bullying problems at school. These are serious social problems. There are other serious problems, including the use of cell phones and the internet for harming children. Children today are facing these kinds of increasing problems. Adults are at a loss to know how to deal with these problems. We need to review our mission to youth and help children grow up in a healthy manner, cooperating with families and schools. Therefore, we must study the problems at a deeper level and work on cooperating.

John’s Research Project into Final Phases

December 5th, 2008 by John

It seems that God had orchestrated a “dream team” of church leaders for interviews for his field research on reproducing churches.  The group of leaders is a very good cross-section of leaders from around the country and various organizations.  John is nearly done with the Interview part of the FIeld Research.  Now he moves into the phase of analyzing all the information he has collected.  Ask God to grant strength and wisdom to John as the project will be moved to the US.  For some information on what he has discovered from several churches click here.
