Japanese if you please

Urban Onramps points out that Japan, a very un-Christian nation (1-2%), loves Gospel music (due to Sister Act).

I’ve been wondering if God has plans for me to end up in Japan (as a church planter) at some point. I’ve always been fascinated by the culture (in good and bad ways).

I’m a big fan of RPGs like Final Fantasy and video games which got me into Anime and eventually interested in the fascinating culture Japan has.

I tried learning Japanese for a while, but gave up–it’s quite a difficult language. I’ve found Spanish much easier to learn, but I did have a great teacher which I’m sure helped greatly.

My pastor and I have a ‘pact’ that we will visit Tokyo in the next 5 years for a week or so. We’ll see what God has in store…
