Post Info TOPIC: SDA baptisms and deaths in Japan

SDA baptisms and deaths in Japan

Last Sabbath at the Kobe Church, I heard that last year in Japan 233 people were baptized into the SDA church.

How many deaths do you think there were of SDA believers in Japan last year?

There were 216, leaving a net gain of 17.

In a country of 127,000,000, with a SDA presence of around 120 years, and we only have around 15,000 members, and only 233 baptisms a year.  Probably of that 233, around 30-40% are foreigners, and 40-50% are children of members.  That leaves a rough guess of 30-40 Japanese adults who are baptized a year.

Sad, really sad.

What can be done to change this situation around?  Surely God didn't make hundreds of million of people just to burn them up in the Lake of Fire!
