A little while ago, a Malawian mechanical engineering student visting from Scotland (okay, it's complicated) came to Sunday Mass at the chapel. I approached him after the service to say welcome (I admired him for having sat through the whole service in Japanese).
We got to talking, and he said this:
"They told me when I was a child in Africa that Japan was very amazing, with great tall buildings, and highly advanced technology.
"But I came here, and I've been here a while and looked around and studied. And I still think that the most amazing thing that ever happened to me was Jesus Christ. Was knowing the love of God in Jesus."
