Pray for Tokyo: Edogawa and Koto

Join us this week as we pray for the Edogawa and Koto wards of Tokyo.

Edogawa (江戸川区) is located along the eastern side of Tokyo. It is one of the largest wards in Tokyo. Over 670,000 people live in the 20 sq miles that make of Edogawa. However, there are only 20 churches in Edogawa.

Koto (江東区) is located in southern Tokyo with several man made islands that extend into Tokyo Bay. Koto is roughly 15 sq miles with a population of over 500,000. There are only 17 churches located in Koto.

Both Koto and Edogawa are in need of church plants. There is an overwhelming ratio of people to churches right now. Both areas have also seen a resurgence in new building projects and residential areas that aim to bring in even more people.  As you consider Tokyo this week, pray for the Lord to send more workers into the fields of Japan for the purpose of church planting.
