We believe that God wants to bring a purity movement to Japan.

We believe that God wants to transform the way people think about sex and relationships. We believe that God wants to make His heart known to Japan – to share His beautiful design for relationships and sex – and to restore to wholeness what has been broken.

PureHeart Japan is a place to talk about things that are not usually discussed in churches, such as romance, dating, singleness, sex and sexuality. We will take a good look at God’s heart and plan in each of these areas.

“Let us sing about the ways of the Lord.” Psalm 138:5

Purity is...

  • It is in our interpersonal relationships – how we honor one another – especially between the sexes.
  • It is in single life – keeping our eyes on Jesus and laying our desires on the altar. He is completely faithful and we can trust Him with our desires. There is something so precious about the single time – to know Jesus as the One who satisfies all the needs of the human soul.
  • It is in the marriage relationship. It is in loving one another in a committed and sacrificial love. It is in enjoying the gift of sex and intimacy with one another. It is in modelling this love for your children.
  • It is in dialogue with your children, as they come into contact with the depiction of sex as the world defines it: through images online and in magazines, through movies, through conversations at school and with their peers, and as they grow up and are faced with choices regarding their own sexuality.
  • It is in fiercely guarding the perimeters around our purity. It is in guarding our eyes from adultery.
  • It is in teaching the value of sex and the impact of sex.
  • It is in confronting the temptations and societal norms and ensnarement of pornography, infidelity, and commodification of sex.
  • It is in praying for godly spouses for your single friends and in encouraging one another to be men and women after God’s heart.
  • It is in intercession for the spiritual war we are in and the stronghold of lust.
  • It is in the complete restoration of the broken walls of compromised purity, healing of the areas of lives that had been destroyed by sexual sin.
  • It is in deliverance and counseling ministry as chains are broken and people are set free.

Team

Jef & Aya

Jef (from New Zealand) and Aya (Japanese) have celebrated their 24th year of international marriage. They have three boys: 20 years old, 18 years old and 15 years old. Jef and Aya have endeavored to create a safe environment in their home where, from an early age, their boys would feel free to ask any questions about sex and relationships, how babies are born, love, dating, etc. Since their boys were young, they talked about various topics with them, in order that they would grow up to be loving gentlemen for each woman they would eventually meet, marry, and build a family together.

The foundation of society is the family. If the family is healthy, everything works. When a person knows they are loved, their self-esteem is secure and they grow into someone who can love others. When the family structure is broken, the marriage breaks down, the children get hurt, and begin searching elsewhere for the love they cannot find at home. Our desire is to share about Real Love!

 

Eitaro & Tamae

Eitaro and Tamae Ogawa encountered Jesus in Singapore 2004, and while having issues in their marriage, Jesus miraculously saved their relationship and family. They left the corporate world in 2016 in response to God’s call to become a missionary in Okinawa, Japan. They moved to Nago, Okinawa with two beautiful daughters in January 2019. Motivated by their life motto – “love God, love people” – Eitaro and Tamae are involved in art and community projects that encourage collaborations amongst people, with the goal of restoring the image of God in Family and Art in Japan.

Rae-Anna

Rae-Anna first lived in Japan in 2004 and returned in 2018 as a long-term missionary with Onfire Japan. She has a passion for a revelation of Purity for Japan.

“I was raised in a Christian family, on the mission field. For ten years I dated my own way, treating my heart casually. In 2010, when I was 25, I gave my life, my sexuality, my heart, my all to Jesus. I’ve now been single for ten years, trusting God with my desires. God has given me freedom and restoration in the area of purity. God continues to refine me daily and at times I am also challenged in walking this path. But I know how wonderful God’s ways are, and how utterly counterfeit and emptying the world’s path is. I want to share about the freedom and joy that comes from walking in the ways of the Lord.”
