Heart4Japan Network Ministry started in 2005 November, aiming to connect resources and raising watchmen in the field!
127 MILLION SOULS, THE LARGEST UNREACHED PEOPLE GROUP ON EARTH! Is Japan a land of foreign to Christianity?
Is Japan a land of cold and darkness?
Or is Japan, as St. France Xavier had said,
" the country in the Orient most suited to Christianity"?
An Original Art done by Y-kun, a hikikomori now coming to his 40. His mom died of cancer few years back, he stayed alone with his dad and his sister. He never made eye-contact when he talked. I thought he was probably mentally challenged at the first glance. YET.....
H said, 違うよ、Y君は優しいよ。絵うまいし〜
Then the Lord led me to the inner world of this man, by showing me his piece of art.
This piece of art always strikes me when I look at it.
The art itself speaks about the life in a rural small town in Japan. The drawing is about 6 ft long, hung on a wall of the house of an artist who volunteers himself in the hikikomori outreached. He certainly admires it, yet undervalued it. (This piece of art could make a huge impact in at least 2 fields, one in the support of disable/underprivileged, another one is perhaps the school.) Imagine if Y is channeled probably to the right KEY person, he could have live a different life.
It maybe difficult for you to imagine,
the damage that a long withstand isolation brought along to the victim.
Someone may like to think that hikikomori could be a golden period of reflecting self, yet when it gets longer, you stuck with the stagnancy!
Without the right RESOURCE,
there is no way out!
If only I have the RIGHT contact,
if only I have the hikikomori FUND,
if only I have the full support from PEOPLE,
I could build a house,
I could build an exhibition hall,
I could build an office,
to work out a PLACE for the hikikomori,
a place called HOME,
a place that can allow them to try and error of their potentials
