A while ago, while interviewing Cynthia Ruble, an American missionary in Japan, I asked her what were her biggest challenges. I knew it was a personal question—but I didn’t expect her to start tearing up. As she recollected the helplessness and anguish of the people she serves, Ruble wiped her eyes and said, “It’s just so, so, so sad, some of these stories. ... These people have a lot of misery. Japan is a very wealthy country, but it’s full of unhappiness.”
