Ukrainian Bibles

In response to a request from the Ukrainian Bible Society following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, New Life Ministries printed Ukrainian Bibles in two batches.
25,000 New Testaments and 110,000 Bibles have been sent and are being distributed locally with relief supplies. The local people, who are still in a difficult situation, are looking for the words of the Bible to be a beacon of hope and nourishment for their souls. We plan to print more Bibles in Ukrainian in 2023. Please keep us in your prayers.

Qatar World Cup


With the start of the World Cup in Qatar, three mission partners – PTL (Pocket Testament League), a pocket Bible ministry, FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes), a sports ministry, and GPM (Gospel Publishing Mission), a ministry at events around the world, and New Life Ministries worked together to print gospel tracts. Two kinds of tracts were printed for Japan and offered free of charge.

Deteriorating Equipment

Deteriorating Equipment

In 2022, support was requested for the maintenance of the following deteriorating equipment:
1. printing cooling machine
2. high-voltage power supply units
3. power supply batteries for paper roll clamps
Funding was obtained for the cooling machine and repairs were successfully carried out. The paper roll clamps are also due to be repaired. However, funding for the high-voltage power supply units has not yet been received and we continue to seek support.

New Life Ministries is a non-denominational Christian ministry committed to serving the Lord by printing and sending Bibles and Gospel literature to Japan and the rest of the world, in each people group’s heart language.
Beginning in 1954, under the name New Life League, the ministry reached out to children, provided Gospel literature, and did evangelism through radio broadcast.
Later on, the work shifted more to the collection and printing of Gospel literature as the main focus.
Throughout history, there has always been a call for the supply of Bibles, and New Life Ministries has continued to do all that it can to meet the demand. Our purpose is to see Japan changed for Jesus, and that the whole world be filled with His precious Word.
