Using detailed material from his personal diary, readers will enjoy following Hideo Hatakeda as he struggles to adapt to living and working in a completely different culture from his own. When he realizes that Christian fellowship has no ethnic boundaries because of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, he learns to trust, not in circumstances or blessings, but in God alone. Truly, this Japanese frog has jumped into the great ocean of self-discovery to experience the joy of a personal relationship with the true and living God. In like manner, readers will discover a fresh perspective on cultural differences and gain renewed faith as they see the world through the eyes of one young Japanese missionary.
