Carole Marie Interviews Geneva Iijima

I was recently interviewed by Carole Marie, who happens to be a great friend of mine, for her writers’ blog. Carole Marie and I met at a writer’s conference a number of years ago. Though we’re many years different in age–she once asked to call me grandma–we have gobs of fun together.
I love encouraging young writers and hope you’ll visit her site and see my interview at http://carolemarie.com.

Japanese Edition of Jesus Loves Us All Has Arrived



I’m so excited to share that 10,000 copies of the Japanese edition of Jesus Loves Us All are now published and being distributed to Japanese children displaced by the tsunami–many of them orphaned of one or both parents. A couple of weeks ago I emailed a missionary friend in Japan to tell her about my books being available. She replied that she had already ordered 100 for the trips they are taking into the area where the tsunami hit. So the word is getting out.
I just received ten copies of the Japanese edition in the mail. What a joy to know that God can use my books in another country. Please pray with me that God direct these books to the children and families who need them.
