remembering the victims of Japan DisasterFour years ago, the Fukushima 1st Nuclear Power Plant melted down due to the tsunami that hit Japan on 3.11.2011. It's a day I will never forget!

Then he offered practical insights on how to nurture this deep relationship, drawing upon Scripture, as well as the written experiences of believers from the past 2,000 years, including his own.
