Today we live in the global age. The demand for leaning foreign languages is increasing more and more. Learning English as an international common language is especially important.
.Our church has a bilingual meeting. The preaching is in Japanese with English translation or in English with Japanese translation. We do this so that the foreigners may be able to listen to the messages. But that is not the only reason. We do this also so that the Japanese may be able to learn English.
Including the pastor of this church, there are some people in our church who have learned English well enough to be able to translate by listening to the message with translation at church.
Therefore, in order to fulfill the word of God that says ' Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.', we would like to raise the people who can work internationally.
