Being in Japan this past summer was a chance to dream again for God’s Kingdom. It was extremely invigorating spiritually to be around so many people laying down their lives to spread the Gospel in Japan. I learned how powerfully music speaks to the Japanese.
One day this past summer a group of interns went to visit some neighbors to continue developing our growing relationship with them. They had previously asked that I come to play the violin for them as they heard me practicing next door frequently. As I played a familiar Japanese folk song, the neighbors were deeply touched to tears.
