Ruth 2:8-11, NASB
Then Boaz said to Ruth, “Listen carefully, my daughter. Do not go to glean in another field; furthermore, do not go on from this one, but stay here with my maids. Let your eyes be on the field, which they reap, and go after them. Indeed, I have commanded the servants not to touch you. When you are thirsty, go to the water jars and drink from what the servants draw.” Then she fell on her face, bowing to the ground and said to him, “Why have I found favor in your sight that you should take notice of me, since I am a foreigner?” Boaz replied to her, “All that you have done for your mother-in-law after the death of your husband has been fully reported to me, and how you left your father and your mother and the land of your birth, and came to a people that you did not previously know.

Japanese in Spain

The weapons of our warfare are not human weapons, but are made powerful by God for tearing down strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:4, NEB
Did you know that the first Japanese immigrants arrived in Spain as members of an embassy? Many Japanese people eventually settled in the Catalonia Region of Spain in the late 1960s. The first Japanese business established in Spain was Sanyo in 1969. Later Japanese from South and Central America came to get away from troublesome environments.
According to Spain’s National Statistics Institute, nearly 5,000 Japanese citizens resided in Spain in 2009. Spain has a number of Japanese restaurants. Japanese people in Spain are usually followers of Buddhism or Shintoism, though many are secular, especially the younger generation. Young Japanese adults are pursuing an education and profession. They are laboring to enjoy material possessions and activities; yet their spiritual lives are empty. They do not yet know that life simply will not bring happiness unless the Lord Jesus Christ is at the center of it.
