Has anyone had any unusual witnessing experiences lately? Witnessed to anyone unusual? On Saturday evening I went out with my co-missionary (pastoring another church in our town) to the Kaimono Koen ("Shopping Park"), an outdoor mall near the bar district. We've had some interesting times there, giving tracts and witnessing to street musicians, drunks, a fortune teller (she never takes a tract), etc. I gave a tract to one man who then said, "What's this?" in a very aggressive way, which is unusual for Japanese (must have had a couple of drinks already). When I said, "It tells the life of Christ," he said, "Oh, okay," and walked away. Two young men took a tract and then one said in careful English, "Are you a foreigner?" I said, "Yes, I'm from America," whereupon he said, "We are too. We're from Hong Kong!" "Aha," I replied, "Wait a minute." The look on their faces when I pulled out Chinese tracts and gave them to them was wonderful! An old gentleman saw the title of the tract, "The Word Became Flesh," and responded in very polite Japanese, "What does this mean?" I explained that Christ came down in human form to be the message of God to us. He said, "I am a Buddhist, but I understand that," and took the tract with him to read after bowing two or three times. Missionary D. and I stopped for something to drink in our Mister Donut's, then walked back to our parking place giving out tracts as we went. Lo and behold, there were some young ladies getting their pictures taken with some huge men dressed in yukata (summer kimono) with topknots on their heads. Yep, it was a bunch of pro sumo wrestlers in town for a demo tourney! Amazingly, almost all of them took tracts, except for one huge guy sitting sourly on a bench! We didn't recognize them, so they were probably lower rankers. Giving tracts and witnessing to Buddhists, drunks and sumo wrestlers: great! Serving Jesus Christ: priceless!!
