Policy makers around the world are watching the aging and depopulation trends in Japan to see how they will be tackled. Japan’s rural population is expected to fall another 17 percent before 2030. Young people are moving to the towns and cities in search of opportunities. Low birth rates provide further contrast in rural towns that are literally filled with older people. As schools close and other services disappear, it is even harder for young families to stay. The government is offering incentives to encourage young people to move out of the greater Tokyo areas. The Church in Japan is also disproportionately small in rural regions.

Pray for this to change (The Bible, 1 Timothy 2:3-4).
