Vision Sunday

We asked a few people from our church in regards to what they are excited for in 2018!

Ryuhei

Are you excited for 2018? Why?
Of course YES, because I’m confident that God will give me breakthrough this year. I have a personal word encouraging me that I can do it in Jesus’ name. So this year’s personal theme is “I can do it”

What are you trusting God for, for Lifehouse church?
Jesus will make an impact through Lifehouse. The impact is love, joy, true friendships and more positive things.

What are you trusting God for breakthrough in the church and personally?
I’m personally trusting for the salvation of my family and especially my local friends. I strongly believe they’ll see something “different” in me.

 

Masa and Reina

Are you excited for 2018? Why?
YES WE ARE! Because God always has something in store for everyone. We have already heard stories about people finding jobs, new babies coming and students making it into their dream universities. It’s been so good so far and we can always trust God for more. Even for those starting with a tough season, God always has something ready.

“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”- Romans 8:28
‭‭
Boom!
Our church has been blessed with a special “spark” that draws people in without doubt. Everyone here has their own special testimony so you can always find somebody that you can relate to and they’ll be more than happy to pray for you and help you along your journey.

What are you trusting God for, for Lifehouse church?
It’s been the same every year:
More people finding Jesus and miracles to happen. We have already seen God do so much- the broken, the lonely, the hurt, the sick – all kinds of people come to our church, receive Jesus and live their best lives ever. We know we will see Him do it again.

What are you trusting God for breakthrough in the church and personally?
For church, we would love to see more and more people find joy in serving Jesus in a dream team. When we serve in church we get to see how God is working in people’s lives, and the best part is that WE get to be a part of it!

We just started serving as leaders for the Resource Team and it’s already amazing.
It’s been very humbling to be part of a huge team that stands at the very front of the church welcoming new visitors and helping them start off their journey with Jesus. It gives us such purpose. Who knows? You might become a part of somebody’s testimony..

For us personally, we would love to see our own families find Jesus. Sometimes the closest people are the ones that are hardest to invite, but through His strength, we would like to keep inviting them. God always keeps His promises and we trust in His timing.

 

Tomoyo

Are you excited for 2018? Why?
Of course I’m excited! I came back to church about 2 years ago and that year, I tried many new things and thought that it was the best year ever. But God gave me even more opportunities the following year, opening my eyes to many things – my joy was doubled! This may be a year of patience, but I know that God will give me the best, so even through hard times, I can have hope and faith and believing for the best year yet!

What are you trusting God for, for Lifehouse church?
I’m trusting God that there would be more opportunities for people to naturally get connected! As church gets bigger, people may feel lonelier, but I believe that people will be able to gather and feel at home. Also, that as people discover what their gifts are or find what they enjoy doing, people will be used by God in different areas of the church and ministry.

What are you trusting God for breakthrough in the church and personally?
I want to see breakthrough in people around me getting saved. I feel this year will be a turning point for my family and friends. I want people to desire God and find healing. I’m trusting that people in the church, who are confused and insecure, will find healing and praise God from the bottom of their hearts. Personally, I want to see breakthrough in my workplace and also be able to trust others more.

 

Judith Hannah


Are you excited for 2018? Why?
Yes, because God has sent me to be in Japan for such a time as this. I believe He is going to use me to change my little part of Japan and send others to change their little parts of Japan. Together we have a greater impact.

What are you trusting God for, for Lifehouse church?
I’m trusting for the right facility for Lifehouse Centre. I’m believing for more church members. I’m believing for more leaders overseas to have Japan on their heart and commit to sowing into this nation as partners of Lifehouse.

What are you trusting God for breakthrough in the church and personally?
That we would have a hunger for more of the Holy Spirit and for the more that God has. That the Church and My own heart would be sold out for God, that we would know His purpose in all the steps we take.

 

Steven and Yumi

Are you excited for 2018? Why?
We’re excited about a lot of growth in our lives this year as we aim to be more effective in business and as a family, reaching our community and serving the church together.

What are you trusting God for, for Lifehouse church?
We are excited about the theme of breakthrough. We are looking forward to powering into new opportunities with God’s guidance and backing, and also through the multiplying force we have by being a part of a great church like Lifehouse.

What are you trusting God for breakthrough in the church and personally?
For the church, we are looking for a breakthrough in great connections with new people, making it easier for them to become part of the church community. Yumi and I are both passionate about creative people and we’ve started an Art Connect group, to connect with more creative people in Tokyo. We meet up every 2 weeks on Sundays from 12:45 to 1:45pm. If you like drawing or doing something creative come join us! You can checkout the details in the Community Connect Groups page.
