Saigoh Takamori: Revere Heaven, Love Mankind Reality
(Saigoh Takamori: Kei Ten Ai Jin no Shinjitsu)


Yoshimasa Moribe
Saigoh Takamori read the Bible. In his memoirs, a servant of samurai warrior and educator Saigoh Takamori said Saigoh gave the Old Testament and New Testament to him. The Bible was in Chinese since there was no Japanese translation yet. Saigoh possibly got it from American missionary G. Verbeck who came to Nagasaki in 1859 and later visited Kagoshima with Bibles and other Christian books. Love your Enemy. In the Bible are the words of Jesus Christ, who said "Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you." (Matthew 5:44) This idea is contrary to any teaching Saigoh would have heard before. Yet after the Boshin War to restore the emperor to power, he advocated forgiving those who had fought against him. The Bible had influenced his thinking in this way. His teachings to the common people were compiled in a book, The Dying Instructions of Nanshu (which was his poetry pen name). His famous motto was "Revere Heaven, Love Mankind." We too need to worship the Creator God and love people. This is the most important thing for humans. Package of 50.

We Are Always Remembered
(Watashitachi wa Itsumo Oboerareteiru)


Sakie Yokota
Tract. No matter what we are suffering, we can always be assured God knows and is with us in the suffering. Sakie learned this when her daughter Megumi disappeared and someone introduced her to the story of Job in the Bible. Job lost all his children and wealth and his health but could still affirm his trust in God. Quotes Job 1:21. She was comforted as she read. As she read more in the Bible she began to see how sinful her heart was. But she learned how Jesus suffered on the cross to save people who are all sinners. She accepted God. Job's friends said he suffered as punishment for his wrongs, but that was not true. God has a plan and, even when we cannot understand it, we know God is love and in his hand is life. God always remembers you and cares for you. I pray for his peace upon you. The profile on the back explains that Sakie's daughter Megumi was abducted to North Korea. Her blue ribbon campaign for Megumi's return has made Sakie one of the most famous women in Japan. Package of 50.

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.

Overcoming Hatred
(Nikushimi o Koete)


EHC
Jacob DeShazer testimony tract booklet. The dramatic story of two enemies who were freed from their hatred when both believed in Jesus Christ. "Jake" DeShazer was an American staff sergeant and bombardier with the Doolittle Raiders in WW2. He bombed Nagoya, was captured and imprisoned by the Japanese and treated cruelly. A guard gave DeShazer a Bible and he read Romans 10: 9. Following its instructions, DeShazer believed in Jesus and was filled with joy. His hate was transformed into love for the Japanese. After the war he returned home to his family, went to a Christian college, married Florence and then returned to Japan as a missionary to share Christ's love and forgiveness with Japanese. He preached all over Japan and published his testimony in Japanese. DeShazer's testimony was read by Mitsuo Fuchida, who was the Japanese pilot who hated Americans and led the raid on Pearl Harbor that brought the USA into WW2. Fuchida got a Bible and read Christ's amazing prayer of forgiveness for those who put him on the cross (Luke 23:34). He became a Christian. His testimony books are listed along with DeShazer's. DeShazer and Fuchida met as brothers in Christ and prayed together. Jake and Florence helped start 23 churches in Japan over 30 years. This is a life transformed through encountering the Bible and trusting Jesus Christ. Won't you seek to know Jesus Christ too and be transformed? Information on the book of his story, Return of the Raider, is on the back page for readers who want to know more plus space to stamp church info. Booklet size: 14.8cm X 25cm, 8 pages. Package of 10.

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: The Light of Salvation Shines in a Dark World

Tract. Adult focus. The Christmas story of the birth of Jesus is not a fantasy. It is a love event, a love miracle and a love mystery.

You also become part of the Body of Christ and the community of believers. The eternal God has come to save you. Believe in Christ and begin a new life. 105x178mm size. Packet of 50.

Christmas Door
(Kurisumasu no Doa)


Makoto Iwabuchi
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. One year he went to a Christmas party at the home of a foreign missionary lady. She welcomed him at the door with a smile and treated him like a regular boy and not someone to be pitied. He began to feel better about himself. He got into folk music in high school, learned to play guitar and became a member of a band. 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. God is seeking you too. Quotes Luke 19:10. 125mm x 105mm size. Pack of 50 tracts.
