in the street or in shops, we must keep praying and listening and watching for God’s direction. Should I speak to this person? Should I give this person a Gospel tract? Compared to so many countries, Japan, on the surface, enjoys great stability, happiness and prosperity, but about 1% of the Japanese people claim to be Christians. In a real way, Japan, which seems to be doing so well, is a land of multitudes under a great shade of darkness. A song I wrote before we came to Japan is more true to us now 28 years later. Far across the ocean Lives a lonely people, Waiting still in darkness Without the love of Jesus. Farmers and fishermen Rising with the morning light, Toiling at their labor Dying in the blackest night. Neon lighted cities, Millions in a hurry, Modern universities But still the truth not learning. How can they believe in Him Of whom they have not heard? Who will go and tell them That they might hear the precious Word? The harvest is great, but the laborers are so few. Please pray that the Lord of the harvest will send forth workers into His Japan harvest. What about you? Please pray for us to be faithful missionaries every day. God bless you, Rick and Beth Conrad BIMI WORLD – Number 2, 2011 31
