OneHope is always striving to create products that will assist and empower churches’ evangelism efforts and are relevant to youth today. To that aim, we have created two new products this year. In February, we created the “Paper Flower & junction film series” DVD, our first DVD product in Japan. We applied an innovative approach to youth ministry by creating discussion starter films based on social issues among youth.
In April, we completed an evangelistic tract called “The MAP”. This tract functions along with the DVD, but can also be used simply as an evangelism tract and over 15000 have been distributed to date. Now, where am I going with all this? Well, there is a third product that we are set to complete this year. It is called… Christmas The Story of Hope
This new manga has been created for the great evangelistic opportunity we have this Christmas season. It focuses on the birth of Jesus but goes on to tell the life, death and ressurection of Jesus. It also has a Christmas theme cover as well as Christmas related articles as well. Our desire is that, with the help of our partners from all over the country, youth across Japan will truly celebrate Jesus’ birth and most of all hear the Good News. Please order and use this new manga to invite youth to Christmas services, for street evangelism and caroling or for any other way to get the Word of God to youth! We want to make sure that we can get this new product into the hands of as many partnering churches as possible in time for the Christmas season. Actual deliveries will begin around November 10th, but you can pre-order these products through the contact page at any time! We are very very excited for this Christmas! Together, let’s share the Good News of Jesus Christ!
