Not too many things get me more excited than hearing a testimony of a someone coming to know Jesus Christ, particularly in Japan. I found this moving testimony on the website Jesus Loves Japan. Eriko Suzuki shares about her experience growing up as the daughter of a Buddhist priest and how she became a Christian in Canada. (For those of you learning Japanese, I also found her way of speaking to be very helpful for learning to talk about God in Japanese in a natural, conversational way).
“I prayed and told God, ‘I understand that you exist but my situation doesn’t allow me to believe that. I’m sorry! Since I’m a Buddhist I can’t believe in You.'” How wonderful that God has given her such a beautiful testimony of His grace and mercy.
