Support & Urgent Needs

LATEST UPDATE (May 2017): 

At this point we are working on broadening our financial support team, as we prepare to go to Japan.

We are also raising funds specifically for travel expenses for our planned time in the US in 2017. 

Our ministry site (in Portuguese):

Supporting the Tsukayama's

As many of you know, we came to Brazil in December of 2009 simply by dropping everything we were doing and following God's clear direction to us. 
And now, in 2017, we are continue to follow God's leading in leaving "life as we know it" once again and transplanting our family of eight across continents once again. We believe the time has come for the fulfillment of a long-time call of God on our lives for Japan.
Read more about that CALL here. 

We believed and continue to believe that God's work, done according to God's will, will never lack God's provision.

We understand the extreme importance of prayer.
We are on the front lines, friends. And the warfare is often intense! Please back us up and keep us covered in prayer.

As we arrive and get settled in Japan, there will be many opportunities for short-term volunteers and teams to serve. 

Step out to change someone's life forever and yours will never be the same again!

The Tsukayamas are supported through the generosity of individuals that feel called to support this ministry. 

" 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'  How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?  And how can they preach unless they are sent? "  Romans 10:13-15
