Program #3461 Betty Jean Fink Classic
3462 Nobuya Matsuda Classic: (Family, Persecution, Hope) In imperialist Japan, students are expected to bow down to the emperor and Shintoist shrines. But Nobuya Matsuda has been taught to worship God and God alone. He is a brilliant musician and his parents help him to follow what he believes at school and learn to express himself through music. But as he grows up and Japan grows more involved in World War Two, Nobuya is sent to work in an aircraft factory where he is punished for who He worships. Through his parents’ love and God’s faithfulness, Nobuya’s faith survives a flood, an air raid and an earthquake and offers him hope when he has no song left to sing.
