Lead Parenting Classes

Only 1% of the population in Japan is Christian. Establishing friendships and trust with Japanese locals is key to creating opportunities to share the gospel. So far, our work in Japan has allowed us to lay the groundwork for these relationships, and now you can help strengthen those connections by leading a parenting class for families in Japan.
