Here is a story of how the love of Christ can change lives:
Japanese Commander Mitsuo Fuchida led the deadly attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. He hated the Americans.
Jake DeShazer, from Salem Oregon, hated the Japanese, and was chosen to be part of the Doolittle Raid, a reprisal attack on Japan on April 18, 1942. His plane went down, he was captured, and spent 40 months as a prisoner of war. Most of that time was in solitary confinement. He survived beatings, torture, and a starvation diet. However, he also got saved through the reading of a Bible that became available while a prisoner.
After Word War II ended he was released, and later returned to Japan to preach the gospel to the people he now loved. Mitsuo Fuchida, through the reading of a pamphlet about the salvation of DeShazer, his experience as a POW and his return to Japan as a missionary, got saved as well. They became brothers in Christ, and often preached together from the same platform.
