Oita day five 大分 #5

 

Here we visited a memorial site for a different kind of martyer.  People who gave everything they had and gave up everything they had for a bigger cause.

I am more aware of the flying Kami kaze pilots of the war but these young warriors, were in one man submarines on a one way trip to death.

This picture shows a mother saying farewell to her son. We can view this many different ways but we chose to call out the samurai warrior spirit, that gives no thought for personal safety to submit their hearts and lives to further the kingdom of love, not by killing the enemy but bombing them with eternal, relentless, pursuing, reckless love.

This site gave us much to think about especially in light of our theme at our morning team time.  Precious in the sight of God is the death of his faithful ones.
