About the Book
The year was 1950 and Raymond Moore was a professor at Pacific Union College in California. One fateful Sunday he and his wife hosted two very special visitors from Japan, and after that dinner one door after another opened for the Moores, leading them to answer a call to missionary service in Japan.
In this book, Dr. Moore recounts his experiences during his time at Japan Missionary College. In each story the hand of God and His leading is evident, even bringing royalty to the small Adventist school. Ultimately, with the dedication of the Moores, the help of a royal prince, and the willingness of the local people to entertain change, a program of true education was established in the Land of the Rising Sun.
