There are 100,064 people that live in Konan City and most of them have been to the largest Hotei Buddha statue in Japan. They will come on a daily basis and pray asking for wisdom and blessings. Konan City is a Buddhist strong hold in Japan, but the statue is nothing more than a pile of rock. They are praying to a god that cannot save. Ro. 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the Gospel for it is the power of God unto Salvation to everyone that believeth! The Gospel is the only hope for the people of this city! I ask that you would pray that God would send proclaimers of the Gospel to Konan City, and that the name of Christ would rise in Japan!
