Chieko Kamidate Johnson(Pastor,TLCCC Baton Rouge/Denver Church)
Praise the wonderful name of the Lord! Thank you for your intercessory prayers and precious offerings.
We held the International Gospel Concert for the first time since we came to Baton Rouge at our church on September 16th. Almost 30 people both Japanese and Americans gathered and some of them came far away from Lafayette.
We had various groups like J-Gospel (Japanese Gospel) singers, Black Gospel group from West Baton Rouge, and Japanese professional singers and keyboard player from New Orleans that play New Orleans style music.
Most of all Japanese people there at the concert heard Gospel music for the first time, they said: “It was great!” “I want to come again for the next concert”, they gave us very good comments.
When they played and sang New Orleans style Gospel songs, they did traditional famous songs, so everybody sang together. Those Japanese people who don’t know the song, they clap hands and it was a joyful time for everyone there.
I met those Japanese people came to our concert next two days, they seed like they got energy a lot, and they were working with a smile. I give thanks to the Lord.
