Mitsuo Fuchida

The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor brought a reluctant U.S. into WW2. The man who led that attack was Commander Mitsuo Fuchida. He would later become a Christian.

It is interesting how he came to know Christ. God certainly had plans for him. He left Hiroshima the day before it was nuked.

A POW named Jake DeShazer played a role. At first Jake was filled with hatred towards the Japanese. After reading the Bible, God spoke to his heart and he became a Christian. He then acted on his faith, by acting differently towards his captors.

It was through his acts of kindness and forgiveness that Fuchida became a Christian. He would spend the rest of his life as a Christian Missionary!

You never know what impact your Christian Love might have on others!
