The world of the early twentieth century was dominated by nationalism and propaganda—an “us versus them” mentality. If Your Enemy Hungers Feed Him tells the story of how the gospel redirected a generation of Christians away from violence so that they could see the people of Japan in a new way.
Following the aftermath of World War II, brave women and men made the courageous decision to leave behind a comfortable life in the United States and embark on a new adventure. They faced incredible challenges of all shapes and sizes, especially as they encouraged fellow Christians to support their missionary efforts among their former national enemies. Learn more about
