Thank you for your ministry! I would like to share this website to the Japanese Christians in Japan because a lot of churches in Japan are not able to have Kids Church due to COVID-19. I appreciate all the resources that are available on this website.
You should also visit Christian Clip Arts – they have Japanese versions for many of their Bible verse illustrations
