Today we had a special praise service at church. There have been attempts at it in the past, but things never seemed to fall together. But now we have "Sensei." Yang Sensei has been very quick in getting "Sensei" involved in things at church since he was baptized in April. He's been helping in the Sunday School, doing Children's messages once a month and doing a bit of performing after church sometimes. Today he was the worship leader for a praise service. Did I mention he was only baptized in April? God is good.
It was wonderful to see him lead worship. It was not what American's would picture as a praise service. It was more meditative, more Taize style, and just a little bit traditional Japanese thrown in. It was beautiful.
The Japanese was simple, so I could understand almost all of the songs. For the most part, it was very easy to follow.
I feel so blessed to watch Sensei grow like this.
I pray that God will continue to bless Sensei, and strengthen him, that he may also bear fruit someday.
