Brazil---Rev. Murakami, Vice Bishop of Latin America

“My father was very strict with me. He always guided me, ‘Man is a child of God, so you must always be No. 1.’ If I was in second place, I had to expect one hour of preaching from him. Every year I participated in the Seicho-No-Ie speech contest, which was held for children between the ages of 5 and 10. My father gave me a voice practice session every day.
