"You have to work hard to offend Christians. By nature, Christians are the most forgiving, understanding, and thoughtful group of people I've ever dealt with. They never assume the worst. They appreciate the importance of having different perspectives. They're slow to anger, quick to forgive, and almost never make rash judgments or act in anything less than a spirit of total love . . . No, wait--I'm thinking of Labrador retrievers!" David Learn, 1998

HEROES: Note on Naoyoshi Sato and Fukushima nuclear plant

NOTE: Ralph Justiniano, who sent the information for the posts about Naoyoshi Sato and the Fukushima nuclear plant  is the Field Leader for Grace Brethren Foreign Missions in Japan. He says, "I do not know Mr. Sato personally; the information came to me from members of our church and from the evangelical Christian community in our area."
     Ralph, Joan and their family live 140 miles from the nuclear plant. "If we travel up the highway to the quake/tsunami zone for relief work, we drive within 36 mi. of the nuclear plant.  The quake/tsunami zone is approx. a 195 mi. drive from our home."
