We hosted a few students from Tenri Kyoko Gakuen (High School) this past week. They had fun sightseeing, shopping, and tasting some local foods. They also did some hinokishin, helping in the church and in the garden; all while practicing their English conversation skills!
I am a fourth generation American of Japanese descent. My great-grandfather immigrated to Hawaii in 1907, and founded Taiheiyo Church in 1931. My grandfather became the 2nd head minister in 1956, and my father succeeded him as the 3rd head minister in 1981. On November 7, 2015, I was installed as the 4th head minister.View all posts by Taiheiyo Church
