Windy...but a blessed day
The weather can sometimes be a troublemaker. It was so windy and cloudy the day before the crusade. Typhoon DANAS hit Honshu, Japan on the first day of the crusade (September 11). But with God's help, (“Where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD” (Psalm 121:1-2), the typhoon moved away from Osaka. Furthermore, many school students were able to attend the crusade because school was closed.

Looking forward to the crusade
Japanese people are known for their orderly ways. For example, they are used to standing in line even if there are only two people. People were lining up two hours before the crusade began. About 30 minutes later, a lot of people were forming lines in front of the Osaka International Convention Center. They seemed to be cheered up as they anticipated the crusade. Some of them in line sat down and had a quick lunch.

Serving the handicapped
Blind people, deaf people, and people in wheelchairs attended the crusade anticipating God's grace. The Japanese people carefully considered the handicapped people who were led by guides to assigned sections. Two guides stayed with them during the conference.

It took 16 hours to get to the crusade
Aomori, located on the northern most tip of Honshu, Japan, is famous for snow. In midwinter people are often snowed in and have to dig tunnels in the snow to get out. But snow didn’t block Aomori Full Gospel Church and their love for God. Seven church members came to Osaka (in the southern part of Japan) traveling all night by bus to attend the crusade. It took 16 hours to arrive in Osaka from Aomori.

Beautiful praise
Before the crusade started, people energetically praised God and clapped their hands. Some stood and raised their hands while they praised God. Among them, an elderly woman caught my eye, sincerely praising God. She may have been stricken with paralysis; she couldn't use one side of her body. Although her pronunciation wasn’t clear, she was praising God and enthusiastically slapping her knee with one hand. There were many handicapped people joyfully praising God in spite of their handicapped conditions. Seriously handicapped people were praising God with motions instead of with their voices. Their beautiful expressions touched my heart deeply. I felt their minds were filled only with delight and thanks to God. Their praises sounded more beautiful than any music.

Daily Bible
So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God,

2 Timothy  1:8
