Kanagi (金木) means “golden trees”, it’s the name of this town. As we were driving to Kanagi, we were accompanied by the amazing views of the rice fields and the golden colour of rices tells us that the harvest season is near. It reminded us that the Lord is the Lord of the harvest. The gospel came to this town in 1950s through OMF missionaries, and the gospel has touched and transformed many lives.
Today, we listened to the testimony of God’s grace in the life of two ladies, one in her 60s and the other in her 70s whose husbands were also Christians but are now with Jesus in the glory.
Kanagi chapel was officially launched in 1994. Over the years, the number of the church attendants have declined. But the church now faces a new era. A new missionary family has just arrived, and this is a great help to the church as it seeks to revive.
