On my second day in Japan, I was privileged to  attend a Japanese Christian service.

This church is special to me and my family because it was the last foreign church my father visited and spoke at before he died.

In 2006…

In 2016…

That day was Memorial Sunday. Once a year, the church commemorates members and their families who have passed away. It was touching to listen to all the names being read one by one.

Lunch time! I had fun interacting with my Japanese friends with uncle as translator.

I had a bad cold and was feverish the whole day. Nevertheless, I was on fire just being surrounded by warm people at church. We may not speak the same language, but having Christ was enough to bond us together for the day.
