Friends, this festival which happens yearly is similar to the Mexican Day of the Dead in that people call their ancestors in to celebrate for two days and then send them back out. here’s a blurb from Wikipedia about it.
Pray for Japan as the vast majority of people celebrate this holiday. Pray for the people that the light of Christ would shine on them. We want to see good come to see the Japanese people in Christ. May it truly be the case this year that God allows them to hear His good news.
