 In this Business Link Bulletin we have interviewed Nilesh, who is an RM pioneer in JapanWhy Japan
Basically, God told me to go so I went. I never had any specific interest in Japan but I did have a sense of calling to the nations. After a few years working with the homeless in the UK I had a sense of needing to prepare for the nations so I got my teaching English certificate and during that time God made it clear that Japan was the nation he was calling me to.

Our connection to Business Link
I started a business in 2014 as a way to reach Japanese people with the gospel. I am keen to develop the business to make it more effective and influential. In conversation, Mike Betts suggested I get in contact with the business link team, which I did, and am now connecting with the group. I’ve particularly appreciated getting some online consultation which is helping me get a fresh perspective on the business and overcoming particular challenges.
 
Our current situation
Church planting: 
We are In the process of forming an RM church plant here in Nagoya. This meets every month. We are starting to develop our core team and trying to gather with our community in smaller groups or in our once a month larger gathering.
 
Business:
We run kingdom English and Japanese conversation schools.  We want to sharpen the business to make it more fruitful in terms of sowing the gospel into the lives of the students and engaging missionaries into the mission field. It has been encouraging for us as the team working in the business has grown and they are getting caught up with the vision God has put on our hearts.
 
 
Next Steps
– Use our training and resources to develop a missionary training center which will equip missionaries to reach their own communities effectively.
– Consistently share the gospel at the school and elsewhere.
– Develop the team working with us as we model and pass on to them all we have learnt and hold dear.
 
Our Vision
As a dynamic community of Jesus followers we will reach the communities of Japan, S.E Asia and beyond as we sow the gospel abundantly into our communities and make disciples who make disciples and plant churches which plant churches.
