On this occasion, there are two particular needs for which we request your support: repair of faulty equipment and printing of Ukrainian Bibles. Please read the following updates on the progress of these projects.


Our Thanks and Update Report

Ukrainian Bibles and Ukraine Aid

Thankfully, the necessary funds to print 25,000 Ukrainian New Testaments and to support Ukraine Aid have been met. We sincerely appreciate your prayers and support.
The excess amount of 203,000 yen will be used to fund an additional 110,000 Ukrainian Bibles.

The New Testaments arrived in Ukraine in August and are being distributed by Ukraine Aid and our sister organization NLM Norway to the people affected by the war.
Please read this article for a summary of our distribution efforts.

In response to a request made by the Ukrainian Bible Society, New Life Ministries is printing an additional 110,000 Bibles in Ukrainian.
In order to fulfill this request, we need another 26 million yen.

These Bibles are due to be bound and shipped by the end of this month. Please remember to pray for these Bibles, that they may be safely produced and delivered; for our mission partners who will be distributing them, and for the necessary funding to be met.

We plan to print a variety of Ukrainian Bibles in the coming year.
We continue to seek your support for this project. Please read this article for more information.

Equipment Repair

Thank you for your attention regarding the maintenance of our equipment. As reported so far, we finished repairing the printing cooling machine, but we have not yet repaired the power supply wiring and the power supply batteries for the paper roll clamps.

Failure to replace the battery of the clamps will also interfere with the operation, making it impossible to unload the heavy paper rolls from the containers.

Both of these repairs are indispensable for the continuation of our ministry.
Please continue to remember these needs in your prayers.



Status of your Support

Status of your Support

The above chart shows the status of donations as of the end of November. The Ukrainian Bible donations listed above comprise funds allocated towards Ukrainian New Testaments and funds allocated toward 110,000 Ukrainian Bibles. For that reason, we will start with the necessary funds allocated for the Ukrainian New Testaments and the subsequent support will be presented as funds allocated for 110,000 Ukrainian Bibles.

Although we have received much support, we need additional funding for printing 110,000 Bibles and repairing deteriorating equipment.
We need 908,000 yen for equipment repairs and 25,797,000 yen for the printing of Ukrainian Bibles, a total of 26,705,000 yen (about 201,144 USD).

New Life Ministries is in need of funding to maintain our facilities, and the problem of rising fuel and material costs is also of very great concern. Electricity costs at the factory have nearly doubled over the last financial year. Our staff is working hard to cut costs as much as possible, but we request your prayers and support so that this work does not come to a halt.

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.
