My Answers to John Eli Garay’s Questions:

Q.1. If you were famous, what will you be famous for?

A. I want to be famous for serving Christ. I would like to translate and write Christian books.

Q.2. What song is guaranteed to put a smile on your face?

A. The hymn, “Be Thou My Vision“, which is my favorite, makes me smile. 🙂 I like the rendition by Ron and Kelly. Please listen to it on their website: http://ronandkellymusic.com/  (It’s the second song, but you can listen to all the great songs if you like). Another song that puts a smile on my face is the Latin American song, “Vuela Paloma“, and also “El Condor Pasa“.

Q.3. If you had to choose an animal for a mascot, what animal would it be and why?

A. I would choose a bear for a mascot, and in fact, I already have a bear mascot for my blog. It’s my mascot because about eight years ago, Dad bought me a black teddy bear from a Crater Lake souvenir shop, which I named Boomster. Sadly, I lost it a couple of years ago, and what remains of him is the hat that Mom made for him (She had knit green clothes for him) and some photos. My blog icon is the late teddy bear. You can also see him on my post, 7 Weeks!!!.

Q.4. What is one contribution that you want to leave this world with before God calls you home?

A. One contribution that I want to leave this world with before God calls me home is translating Christian books from English into Japanese. Right now I’m working on my first translation project: the translation of Lee Duigon’s book, Bell Mountain, into Japanese. I want to make translating one of my businesses.

Q.5. What book would you recommend to someone who is looking to cry, laugh, and be inspired?

A. I highly recommend Christian fantasy author Lee Duigon’s Bell Mountain. It is the first book of The Bell Mountain Series, that has currently 10 books (and 2 more coming soon!). I highly recommend all the books in the series. It is a story of adventure and suspense, and I can guarantee that the reader will laugh and be inspired by this amazing series. Please read them! Once you start, you will find it hard to put them down!


 

5 Questions from me for my nominees:

Q.1. What is your favorite book to read?

Q.2. Have you ever been abroad?

Q.3. Who is your favorite singer or singing group?

Q.4. Who is your favorite Bible character?

Q.5. If you saw Bigfoot staring at you through your window, what would you do?


 

Thank you once again, John Eli! And my nominees, you well deserve the Mystery Blogger Award! 😊👍🏆
