On the 8th, Fukuoka Gospel club of “Life Crown Fukuoka church” held a concert at a Catholic adult nursing care facility at Kasuya, Fukuoka. It was postponed by typhoon and become this date. On the day, we could have a concert without heavy rain and the weather was protected. We regularly serve at this facility. Approximately 30 people were expecting and waiting for us. We could praise in joy.
We sang “Sound of Wind”, “Peaceful Song”, and folk songs together. They sometimes shed tears and listened. They were listening to direct gospel songs like, “Juujika no ue kara” attentively. After the concert, they said “touched”, “it was joyful””I want to listen again” having tea together. Staffs also requested us for the next visit. We want to visit the area where heavy rain hit as a praise band. We give thanks to God who led us!

Big fire broke out in succession at a market and tourist spot of Lusaka and other places, and “Quasi emergency status declaration” has been declared. There is suspicion of arson as cause of those fire. Troops are deployed for towns and tourist spot.
There are people who suspect “incendiary could be street kids? so street kids are gathering to orphanage asking for help. 10 children came to the orphanage yesterday. Usually we have about 30 children (street kids), but now we have about 40 children.
More children to come from now on. I heard there is a possibility for foreigners to be deport from the country forcibly.
In this confusion, internet does not work at all. In newspapers, we see articles of political intension about this confusion. For example “time of last presidential election, opposing candidate has been held in jail (even now he is in jail), and supporters of that opposing candidate might have set fire?” Or the article which says “The current administration is trying to destroy the opposing candidate, troops set fire and hanging a crime on his supporters?”
Life of common households are not affected except internet work at this moment, but anything might happen anytime.
