Project Oak is not a mission or group unto itself, but rather describes the heart of our family calling. When Jesus declared his public ministry in the synagogue, He read from the scroll of Isaiah speaking of the people He had come to minister to. The passage he read from continues:
To grant to those who mourn in Zion—
To give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes,
The oil of gladness instead of mourning,
The garment of praise instead of a faint spirit;
That they may be called oaks of righteousness,
The planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.
We hope to continue in the heart of Jesus to serve his unreached people in Japan. To work the soil so that He will be glorified by strong brothers and sisters who have come to faith in the most spiritually barren of soil.
