I moved to Australia in 1998 and have lived in Melbourne ever since. I became a Christian and was baptized in 2005 and then completed a correspondence course at JTJ Mission Seminary in Japan. I am currently an elder and deliver the Word of God once a month in the Japanese Congregation. I am delighted to bring glory to God through my service at Canterbury Presbyterian Church.


James 5:13–16

Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

あなたがたの中に苦しんでいる人がいれば、その人は祈りなさい。喜んでいる人がいれば、その人は賛美しなさい。あなたがたのうちに病気の人がいれば、教会の長老たちを招き、主の御名によって、オリーブ油を塗って祈ってもらいなさい。信仰による祈りは、病んでいる人を救います。主はその人を立ち上がらせてくださいます。もしその人が罪を犯していたなら、その罪は赦されます。 ですから、あなたがたは癒やされるために、互いに罪を言い表し、互いのために祈りなさい。正しい人の祈りは、働くと大きな力があります
