The most important area of support is prayer. This project needs lots of prayer for hearts to be open to the Gospel. Pray that God will help Kimiyoshi and his family to continue meeting the needs of people on Tsushima and that He will give them more opportunities to share the Gospel.
Pray that the project would be able to obtain (either rent or buy) 30A Farmland (1A = 10 meters X 10 meters). This size would enable to project to be sustainable and maintain viability for the future.
The next project being pursued is to obtain a tractor and start cultivating the harden soil in this area of Tsushima which has not been in use for many years. The hope is that it will provide another means of teaching about God's love and creation while providing a tent-making way to help this ministry to be more sustainable. The cost of the tractor is between $8,000 - $9,000 and it will be needed by October 2019 to start the necessary training for its use and to learn the basics of farming.
God answered this prayer. Please read about it here.
