Evangelistic Resource in JapaneseWalt Manis of Moving Works documented six stories featuring Japanese people being transformed by Jesus Christ. We are giving these Japanese-language short films away for free to any ministry, church, or individual who could benefit from them. We know that you have a heart to reach Japan with the Gospel, so we wanted you to know about these free resources. You’re welcome to use them in your ministry and share with your network so they can do the same.  We have completed the first two films, which are available to stream and download right now from our Japanese Page or English Page.movingworks.org
