Friends, this is a helpful documentary I recently viewed that is helpful in many ways to reveal some of the deeper Gospel issues that begin to surface when you look at some of the bigger problems facing Japan. The focus is on the declining birth rates in Japan but I think the host does a great job of revealing the various idols that people of Japan are enslaved to. Be it money, power, control, comfort or shame, the Japanese are painting a grand picture of what a disastrous course it is to fully be given over to idolatry. Please pray for us as we head to Tokyo this weekend. Pray that the spirit would be at work in the hearts of those around us and that we would see Japan through gospel lenses. Pray that through this trip Karis would receive a vision for the future of ministry in Japan.
