Noboru Morishige, a Hawaiian Gospel musician, came to Tsushima 5 times so far to perform. Local people from Tsushima were invited to listen to this free concert. While they were listening to the music, they heard the story of Jesus and His love through Noboru's testimony and music. His music and stories about Jesus often connect with many Buddhists and creates a genuine interest in God.
Following this concert there was at least one person who was moved to find out more about God's love and has been receptive about hearing the Gospel. Please continue to pray for this ministry.
Matthew 9:35-38 New King James Version (NKJV)
Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."
