ARMY OF OCCUPATION – SENDAI, JAPAN 1941

I found a Christian Community in Mindanao,

Army of Occupation, I share,

First, Sendai port by the shipboard

We were greeted, real dog fight there!

.

.

G.I.’s thirsting for more action gathered around

Canine competition and for free!

So obvious they meant to kill each other!

We were battle weary, but must see!

.

.

G.I. Chaplin then plowed through spectators

Happened so fast, hard to conceive.

Grabbed the scrapping dogs, each by the neck skin

Threw them from the circle, believe!

.

.

We G.I.’s dumbfounded Chaplin disappeared

Admiration swelled at least here!

You guessed, I became his assistant!

Admiration mutual it would appear!

.

.

He had me lead a Bible study later

Fundamental me!  He like modernist!

While I presented Bible as very truth

Dumbfounded did he then join the list?

.

.

Of Believers?  Later it was more obvious

Seminary graduate compact!

His amazement was profoundly startling

“Sam, I-I never heard it like that!”

.

.

Garrett Biblical Seminary, what was taught there?

Give your students what they desire.

Like, If it’s a bunch of dumb G.I.’s,

Give them Heaven and Hell fire!

.

.

He just nodded sheepishly, “You got it.”

Much ashamed, he was to admit

Pure hypocritical the teaching there!

Hopeful that he took the truth to fit!

.

.

Years later, a church in Lindsay, California, Daisy Nakada, precious Saint, from that Christian town Mindanao, Japan.  High on the hills, Dr. Nakada but back to Lindsay, California.  Myself, Pastor, and Daisy paid a surprise visit to many Japanese farmers in that vicinity.  Daisy was aware and of our presence there, of course, we had her stay the while.  All I ever knew about the Doctor was that he practiced.  Daisy, the world traveler, educated state-side.
