JAPAN

COOS OSAKA

Osaka is located on the main island of Honshu, roughly in the center of Japan. In May 2015, our Osaka Church-Planting team left for the field. Within six months, the team set up the COOS Osaka Center whereby they ran various activities and programs for both adults and children. Through building friendships with the Japanese, the team had opportunities to share the Gospel with them.

Our previous mission teams have also contributed much to the work in Osaka. Through running programs (such as cooking demonstrations) and parties for both children and adults and befriending the locals, many of them had the opportunity to share their testimonies with the Japanese.



To visit our COOS Osaka website, click on the link: https://coosnihon.jp/

We need more workers for the field! The Love Singapore churches have initiated the Love Japan Project to mobilize and send more workers to Japan in the coming years. Under this project, COOS will be the coordinating church for the Kansai region. Let’s trust God to raise up the laborers!

 Recruitment of Volunteers

Come befriend the Japanese via online platforms and join us 1 weekday evening per week to engage them in conversational English. You may register here: tinyurl.com/COOSOnlineJapan or scan the QR code below:

EAST TIMOR

COOS BOBONARO

Under Love Singapore, Love Timor was birthed to bring holistic transformation to the young nation of Timor-Leste. COOS has been appointed to oversee the district of Bobonaro, which is located on the western part of the country, and borders Indonesia to the west. Timor-Leste is divided into 13 administrative districts. Each administrative district is divided into sub-districts, with each sub-district divided into sucos (villages). There are a total of 65 sub-districts and 442 sucos in East Timor. Dili, which is the chief port and commercial center for East Timor, is the capital.

Song Lyrics:

Restoring Bobonaro

Arise, Oh people of My heart

Who will go for Me on My behalf                 

I’ve seen their oppressions

I’ve heard their groans and cries

For chains to be broken, for eternal life            

Bobonaro, a land for the free

Transforming a people who will live in victory

Bobonaro, redeemed by the Lord

It’s in Jesus we will see her destiny

restored, restored, restored

Arise, Oh people of My heart

Who will go for Me on My behalf

Giving bread to the hungry

Living water for their souls

Restoring the land by a thousand fold

 

Arise, Oh people of My heart

Who will go for Me on My behalf

Rebuilding families, transformed by My Power

Possessing the land by My Truth and Word
