Japan: Hungry for Christ's Love

How can you impact this nation with tremendous sociological and spiritual needs? North Americans are uniquely qualified to reach the Japanese. Why?

First, our own society is growing more Postmodern, losing any absolutes we once held dear. Takeshi Takazawa, a national leader has said:

In many ways, Japan's mindset compares well to typical Postmodernism, and it has been that way long before we came up with the 'Postmodern' label."

Second, Japan is similar to the West in that it is an affluent nation where money can't buy peace. Symptoms of this spiritual vacuum are obvious -- social turmoil in every city, suicide at all-time highs, scandals are commonplace, traditional religions on the decline.

As a result, there's a hunger for Christ's love that you can bring!

God may use you to help draw this strategic Asian nation to Himself. Are you ready to be used by Him?
