A little over two years after it welcomed the first Japanese to its Sunday worship service, Itoi Church, located in a small town in Hokkaido, baptised its first believer in 1982. During the baptism service, the visibly nervous young believer stood up to share his testimony. It was an act that took great courage, but it was the first visible fruit of three years ploughing, sowing and watering, and it marked the beginning of an amazing chain of events that would lead to more conversions and baptisms.
In this missionary’s autobiography, Melville Szto recounts his pioneering church-planting experiences in Japan — as well as his own spiritual journey — and gives readers inspiring glimpses of the grace of God at work in yielded lives and the power of God at work in “hard” places.
