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…

    How strange that you should be interested in Japan…last year at the Harp and Bowl conference in KC, there were so many Japanese present. I can’t remember the name of the man who was teaching one night…but had a word from the Lord on Japan. I’ll have to see if I can find the tape – I probably have it. He was preaching on something in totally the opposite direction of revival if I remember correctly, and then stopped and the whole room got quiet. Then, everyone started crying! It was the first time I had ever experienced anything like it. He said that Japan was going to be a place of major revival in the end times. He also referred to Japan as one of the darkest places today. Hopefully I’ll remember…
