VJE NEED YOUR HELP  e needyour help in prayers. The Apostle Paul s suggestions in Col.4*2-6are_most applicable to our prayer needs in Japan just now.  Continue in prayer and watch in the same v/ith thanksgiving. Pray that God will open a  door of ut terance for us in the villages to which the Gospel calls us. The door of opportunity is open. There are no government or religiousre strictions to keep us out ofthese villages. There are century old social barriers of tradition, in difference and unconcern. Pray that the Holy Spirit, will show us how-to speak the  myst- ries of Christ —truthsof the Gospel — tho.t vre  mi^rht make it manifestas I v;e ought to speak. Pray that we  might know how to answer every man . These are our suggestions to help you watch in your prayersPraying like thiswill hold upour hands to do the work more effectively. BIBLE SCHOOL STARTED Often,as we see the children in the mommunityabout us at play or starting offto school early in the mormmng,we have thought these children should be learning about Christ also. OnSunday afternoon, Jan, 8, we had our first Bible school hour in the raisBion house. 16 came. Only 1 or 2 had ever sung any of the Bible school songs but they all tried as Mrs. Takafuji led them, ã ãheir teacher then told them a flanograph story about the birth of Jesus» Due to family customs, it will be some time beforethesechildren can take an activepart .in church activities. Some may never be able .to do so, . Others may have to wait untilihey become adults andhave a family of their own,.Some of these can break from follovang old family traditions and help make their own family really christian„ The future of Christianity in Japan depends much on the teaching of these young boys and girls now so they may plqce a correct inter pretation ã on Christianity in their actions and thinking in their adult lives. The-young people and adults of today ad.indifferent, and often ignorant, of what Christianity really- is. Their paidekeeps themfrom seekingout opportunities to study Christianity for themselves. We arethankful to have the opportunity tp teach these young lives now.; iPieasepray .withus that 1 day they will give Christ His rightful place in their lives.  NUGGETS  ROM THE NIELSENS .
