Pastor Kitamura officially welcomes Sayuri & Keisuke as our newest members of the church this March - Praise God!
The two ladies seated husbands' were transferred this year so John compiled a book of our recipes for them as farewell presents and along with several other of his students we had a 'good-bye' lunch for them
The opening ceremony each year in April for school - as well as almost everything else in Japan! -- is always a big deal and especially for the incoming first graders. John always tries to be there at the elementary school where he volunteers to welcome the new students.
