ROBERTA STEPHENS – American Baptist Missionary in
Roberta writes: “Most Americans don’t have the opportunity to attend a kindergarten graduation. It’s a big deal here in Japan, with mothers in the audience weeping as their little tykes go up to get their certificates, then bellow out their favorite songs. I was shocked this year to hear them sing a song I’d taught them as 4 year olds... “Deep & Wide”! Then, they sang “Jesus Loves Me” in English. I don’t teach five year olds English but they had learned that song from their English teacher. I’ll admit, that sort of got to me because my deepest desire is that they truly feel that Jesus does love them as they branch out into the big world of elementary school.”
