2013 WOMENS OUTREACH TO JAPAN
Where: Iwata, Iwakuni and Osaka, Japan
When: July 8 – July 23, 2013
College Age Women & High School Juniors & Seniors
THIS TOUR will stretch each participant on & off the field. We will be learning what it means to be a sports minister, as well as putting what we learn into practice through many different avenues of ministry such as matches, camps, post-game meals, testimony sharing, friendship evangelism, clinics, and pre-tour training. Our hope is that each girl on this trip comes home with a deeper knowledge of our Lord, Sports Ministry and a confidence in sharing her faith with others.

COME JOIN US for this exciting outreach to Central & Southern Japan. This is our 9th year to minister in Osaka and Iwata, and our 6th in Iwakuni. This year in particular serves a unique purpose in coming alongside a new sports ministry by partnering with Masa & Chie Yokota and Pastor BJ Tsutada in Osaka. In addition to matches, we will do school assemblies which will attract students and families to their Soccer Academy. They have arranged matches for us with local select clubs and Universities as well as High School teams. Soccer Night (icebreakers, fun, food & fellowship) provide additional opportunities to create relationship with our host churches.
In Iwata, we will be paying matches with two High School girl’s teams and providing clinics to local clubs in order to connect them to the church. We will also be traveling to Southern Japan where we will be partnering through the Chaplains office on a US Marine Corps base to provide a 3-day camp for the children of the F-18 fighter squadron and their support team families. We will also minister off-base with Japanese sports ministers & missionaries. It’s not all work and ministry however, there will be a day to rest, relax & see some of the most beautiful scenic & cultural locations of historical Japan.
Get ready to make an impact and be challenged by the opportunity to represent your Savior, your country, your sport, and the Seahorse Soccer ministry through this awesome opportunity. We will take two days prior to departing to cover cultural orientation, physical preparation, and get ready spiritually.
