1. Words from Organizer

       Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism (LCJE) Japan announces the first conference ever to be held to build network among local churches and church bodies in Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and other parts of East Asia, along with Jewish mission organizations from outside the region that nevertheless would like to reach Jewish people visiting or resident in this part of the globe. Our aim is to foster all kinds of practical introductions and lasting connections between Asian Christians and Jewish mission organizations, together to bring the gospel to Jewish people here in East Asia.
      This conference, "Jewish Evangelism in East Asia: Looking for Opportunities, Making Connections" will be held this year at Wakayama Lutheran Church in Wakayama City, Japan, from November 13 (Monday) to November 15 (Wednesday), followed by forums on Jewish Evangelism for the interested Christian public in Osaka November 16 (Thursday) and Tokyo November 18 (Saturday).
      Jewish people both of the Diaspora and Israel increasingly are found in East Asia. So why not greet them with Messiah Yeshua and His Jewish gospel, in this region where that would be the last thing anyone would ever expect, for whatever reason they're here? We Christians in this part of the world must work together in taking the first necessary and practical steps in establishing mission workers in the varied countries of this region. We need to talk!
      You'd be surprised at the needs, the possibilities, and the willingness of your brothers and sisters in LCJE Japan, LCJE Korea, and LCJE Hong Kong to get on with this work. What we want to do is to challenge Asian Christians to that same willingness. Won't you help us? We hope to see you here in November 2017!
