“My wife Seiko and I returned to Japan two years ago to do church planting with OMF International. With a Bible course at Columbia Int'l University for Seiko, a baby, a period of pastoring a Japanese church in Charlotte, NC, and then dep- utation, it took nine years to get back to Japan. We are now serving at Sendai Evangelical Christian Church ( In October 2008 the Lord blessed us with a second child, Leo. Our daughter Akari is now seven years old and is in the second grade at a local public school.”
