On January 27th, 2018 a youth event for area churches drew approxiamately 27 students and 7 pastors and missionaries. The day began with an excellent chapel service lead by one of the Japanese pastors. We were also able to introduce some new praise and worship songs. Everyone enjoyed the fellowship over lunch and into the mid-afternoon. One of the pastors and his wife are virtually professional chefs! They prepared and excellent chicken & pasta lunch along with dessert. Early reports are that the group is planning to hold another such event in a few months. Praise the Lord!
