Keeping Your Perspective

You know what it's like to hold your hand up close to your face. When you do, all you can see is your hand. If you kept it there, you could easily get caught up in the details of your hand and lose sight of other things like where you are walking. The lines and creases on your hand would begin to take on a much greater importance than they do when you leave your hand swinging at your side.

We have an enormous tomotao plant growing in our garden! I've used two stakes in my attempt to hold it up and I think it the last couple of rainy and hot days it has grown another 10 centimeters or so!! There are seven or eight green tomatoes with a LOT of little yellow flowers with the promise of many more tomatoes through the summer.

Sadly, Japan is an often overlooked mission field.

When people think of Japan their thoughts turn to sushi, great service, wonderfully polite people who are hardworking, technologically advanced and economically secure. Tokyo is a great tourist destination with incredible food, exotic places to visit and an exciting cultural experiences.

Why Japan - part 2

Japan is a free and highly developed society.

By almost every measure they are a model society, effecient and productive. But spiritually speaking, Japan is a dark and needy. It is a land filled with superstition and many, many idols. Shrines can be found in most neighborhoods and temples are very comon. However, in the midst of all this darkness, missionaries are able to easily come and go among these people. But while many are open to hearing about the things of God, few have been willing to accept the Gospel as truth.
