ChildD has left a great impact on the Azumino Family Chapel through the ChildD Seminar and individual meetings. I could see some teary eyes from the attendees of the seminars. I was honored to be able to serve as a ChildD Ministry interpreter for the individual meetings because I could see that all those counseled
From the rising sun to its setting,
the name of the Lord is to be praised.
All to Jesus!
We thank the Lord for the gift to serve in Japan through the ChildD Ministry. With God, He takes what is challenging and uses it to highlight His goodness and abundance. He knows every situation, for nothing is hidden from Him, and He is faithful to address our greatest needs. May you be encouraged that He is with you. He has bottled every tear and rejoices with you in every victory. He is the “Hope” we have for every challenge we face, and it is He, that brings the answers which lead our hearts to see “beauty in ashes, to have joy in mourning and to give us a garment of praise in despair.” We are honored and excited to share a few testimonies of how God met needs and provided.

A gift from a grandma that birthed a ministry
This beautiful origami heart was given to me by a grandmother. It spoke of the pain and heartache and how God alone can bring us hope. To this day, whenever we are at this convention in Japan, we hope to see her and to bless her. Her face spoke a thousand words, and her tears birthed the “heart” of this ministry. It was in November 2012, in the last hour of the CHEA-Japan convention, a sweet and gentle grandma walked up to me through hundreds of parents and children. For the ministry of ChildD, it a time of many emotions.

We have changed the names of your children to keep your messages confidential, but have not edited your letters. Thank you for your permissions, and the intent of each word written to bless us and encourage our readers.

We went to the ChildD Ministry in 2014 CHEA convention and we are so touched and moved as we learned how to Bless our children and others. We started praying Blessing Prayer every day until today.

In Japan, the number of kids who come from overseas is increasing. They need support to learn Japanese, but the system is not well established yet. They mostly rely on volunteers. We are entrusted by the Board of Education in the city of Matsumoto to help these kids learn Japanese. We all have different backgrounds
I was really encouraged through meeting with you. At the beginning, I was wondering if there is any approach to help my daughter. But at the end of the meeting, through God’s words, I learned that the most important matter is how I live or what kind of attitude I have. It is disappointing that
Thank you very much, for counseling me. When I had a meeting with you, I was so tired of days that I couldn’t love my daughter. Rather, I was scolding her everyday. When I went to your seminar, the first thing that touched me was the first commandment – It is God’s plan that I
Thank you so much for giving your time today. For a long time, I have been worried that my son. Some advice I have been given without any solid foundation still kept my mind cloudy and wondering. Then this time, I was given this opportunity to talk to a professional. You gave me some concrete
