The other day we visited with old missionary friends from Japan. They are now living in Ohio. Nancy teaches an English class for Japanese women there. The class discussing how words are translated into other languages and she gave some examples of how the Bible has been translated into many languages around the world.
One women asked, “I wonder if the Bible has ever been translated into Japanese?”
Here is a very educated Japanese woman living temporarily in the USA and she did not even know if the Bible was in her own language! Actually the Bible has been translated into Japanese. It is readily available; actually it is a best seller. And yet with less than 1% Christian, many have never heard.
