November 24th, Jubilee Japan held a concert in a nursing home, "Human Support Iwatsuki." This concert's schedule were postponed from July because of a recent typhoon. However at this time, the concert concluded through God's grace.
"Amazing Grace," "Oh Happy Day," "Hosanna" (Kirk Franklin), "Hallelujah You're Worthy," and many gospel songs were performed.
Mr. Harada, facility director of Human Support Iwatsuki, testified, "This is the 'Home of the Gospel.' We received much happiness through this music. Some people were smiling from the start of the concert until now."
Jubilee Japan representative Hiroki Tanaka commented, "Gospel music makes happiness and joyfulness. When I was younger, I had experiences of going to concerts by myself in outside community. After the concert, I felt sadness and loneliness. But Christian music is different. When gospel concert finished, I felt very happy. We can replace the hearts of people from sadness to happiness through God's grace. Please pray for this precious activity."
