Yae Niijima: Samurai Woman, New Edition
(Shinpan: Niijima Yae Samurai Uuman)


Yoshimasa Moribe
Yae Yamamoto was the subject of a TV drama aired in 2013 and is known as a strong character in the modernization of Japan. What is not well known is that the Bible's teaching formed her backbone. Moving from Fukushima (Aizu) to Kyoto in 1871, she entered a new school for women, studied English and joined a Bible class offered by a missionary, M. L. Gordon (photos). Her encounter with the Bible changed her understanding of the world. She learned of the God who created the universe and loves humans and she found truth in Christ. In 1875 she met Joh Niijima who had just returned to Japan from the US and wanted to make the Bible the foundation of a new Japan. She helped him found what is now Doshisha University. On January 2, 1876, Yae was baptized as a Christian and the next day married Niijima in the first Protestant wedding in Japan. Together they traveled the country sharing the gospel of Christ in public meetings and ministered in a church they started in Kyoto. Why did the Bible have so great influence on Yae and others in the Meiji Era? Yae said, “truth is in Christ.” Jesus Christ himself said “I am the way, the truth and the life.” (John 14:6) Won’t you too check out this Bible that is so influential? Package of 50.

Cross and Resurrection

Cross and Resurrection
(Juujika to Fukkatsu)


Nagune
2000 years ago in Israel's capital city of Jerusalem a 30-year-old man named Jesus was nailed to a cross. Before he died he cried out "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Why has the cross, an instrument of gruesome execution, been valued by Christians and put on churches? Because it reminds Christians of the death of Jesus Christ, the Son of God and they think of God's love. This love caused God the Father to abandon his Son and caused Jesus to willingly give up his life. This was all so we human beings could receive forgiveness for our sins. He even asked God to forgive those who put him on the cross. That is love. Sin is turning your back on God. We deserved to die for our sin but Jesus took our place. But that is not all. He then came alive again (was resurrected). That event is recorded in the 4 Gospels where it says the tomb was empty and He showed himself alive to the disciples. Even the women who first saw the tomb and heard the words, "He is not here. He is risen," did not know what to think. It seems contrary to common sense. It takes faith. We Christians believe the testimony of the people who saw him alive. Jesus' resurrection was not temporary resuscitation but was victory over death. It has changed the world. He gives believers hope and new life. You can know this resurrected Jesus if you go to church. There the Christians are called the Body of Christ and you will encounter the hope, love and new life that these Christians have. You can have it too. Package of 50.

What Modern People Have Forgotten: Jukichi Yagi

What Modern People Have Forgotten: Jukichi Yagi
(Gendaijin ga Wasureta Mono: Yagi Jukichi)


EHC
Jukichi Yagi (1898-1927) was a poet who worked as a teacher. He died at the young age of 29 and only published one book of poems. Over a 5-year period he wrote 3,000 poems which even now are greatly loved. In them he looks at Nature, thinks about his hometown, about his wife, about children, and, with trembling heart, puts those thoughts into words. Three of his poems are quoted. One expresses a desire to not give up seeking beauty in relationships with people. He had that hope because he knew the Bible and believed in Jesus Christ the Son of God who loves people and saves them from perishing and gives eternal life. Quotes Isaiah 40:31. When he learned he was sick, and knowing he would die young, he continued to write poems. Another poem is about pausing to sit on grass and realize he had made mistakes. At such times resting in Nature we can hear God's voice. The third poem is about hearing a harp (koto) quietly playing in autumn brightness. It encourages us to quietly take one step at a time as our lives move ahead. Information on the Forest Book about Jukichi's life and faith is on the back page for readers who want to know more plus space to stamp church information. Package of 50.

What is Valentine's Day?

What is Valentine's Day?
(Barentain Deitte…?)


Ralph and Miho Clatworthy
Where did Valentine's Day come from? In the 3rd century Roman soldiers were forbidden to marry. But Pastor Valentine believed marriage was important and married some soldiers to their brides. He was martyred on February 14. People remembered him for his stress on the importance of married love and made valentines to express love on that day. The custom came to Japan in 1930 and chocolate as a valentine gift began in 1970. But what is real love? The Bible teaches "Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant." But we do not really love that way and so we sin. The Bible also says "Greater love has no one that this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. " When I ask couples who want to marry if they would give their lives for the other, most have never thought that far. But one person did love that way. The Son of God Jesus Christ died on a cross in the place of all people. "While we were still sinners Christ died for us." He was our substitute taking our sin punishment. (Isaiah 53:6). If we believe in Jesus then the Holy Spirit gives us the power to love others. (1 John 4:19) So pray and confess your sin to God and ask Him for help to love others. Quit selfish living and believe and follow God and you will become a person of love. Sample prayer of decision. Read the Bible and pray and join a church. God who always loves you will not just give you a Happy Valentine's Day but a Happy Valentine's Life. Jesus promises to be with you always. (Matt. 28:20). Packet of 50.

Christmas tract for adults. Makoto was a boy when he lost his father and he remembers a simple Christmas with his mother. Other people pitied him because he was fatherless.

He remembers one Christmas when he was walking down a neon-lit street he heard a popular song “I Am Dead” on loudspeakers. People around seemed happy, but he felt more lonely. Years later a fellow musician invited him to a concert at a church. There he learned of Jesus Christ. Once during a church service he felt a shaking and a strong presence of Jesus who said to him “Now don’t you know me?” When the pastor asked if he believed in Jesus he said “yes.” He was 26. He feels for years he was lost outside the door of Christmas but Jesus found him and now he is inside where Jesus is always with him. If you are lonely at Christmas, call out to Jesus.

What’s Halloween?
new
What’s Halloween?
(Halouintte?)


Ralph and Miho Clatworthy
Tract. Halloween decorations and costumes are popular. Where did it come from? In Europe the Celts had a day when they thought the dead and evil spirits would play before returning to the world of the dead on the night before All Hallows Day (All Saints Day). Evil spirits are scary. They are talked about in the Bible too. Are there things you are scared of? But the Bible also talks about the one true God who made the universe. Because God loves us we do not need to be scared. Many verses tell us not to be afraid because God is with us always everywhere. God sent Jesus to our world. Will you welcome God into your heart? You can talk to God by prayer. If you go to church your faith can grow and you can fellowship with God forever. Quotes: Jere. 31:3; 1 John 4:18; Isaiah 41:10; Romans 8:28; Matt. 28:20.
