Japan SDAs are dying out

Yesterday at church, I heard that in 2017 there were 233 baptisms into the SDA church in Japan. And there were 216 deaths.

There are approximately 15,000 members, in a country of roughly 127,000,000.

I’m not sure of the breakdown, but I’m guessing around 30-40% of those baptisms in Japan last year were of either foreign people living in Japan, or of 2nd-3rd generation South Americans of Japanese descent who have come to Japan.

The church in Japan is dying.
Any ideas on what to do about it?
