Regarding the Change in mission allignment in Japan:
1. The news was read in every Sacrament Meeting in Japan on Sunday, January 28, 2007. We were in the Nakano Ward and heard it there. We were already aware of the details but it is now official.
2. The Tokyo Metropolitan Area will now be one Mission with President Allen Hill (Current Japan Tokyo North Mission President) as the president of the new Japan Tokyo Mission.
The Japan Tokyo Mission will consist of the ten Tokyo-area stakes (Tokyo,Tokyo South, Yokohama, Fujisawa, Machida, Matsudo, Musashino, Saitama, Chiba, and Kiryu Stakes)
3. The Japan Tokyo South Mission and Japan Tokyo North Mission will no longer exist as such.
4. The Japan Kobe Mission will be reopened with the mission home being in Kobe in the former Mission Home as soon as it is ready to move into.
The Japan Kobe Mission President willl be President Val Tucker (who is currently serving as the Mission President of the Japan Tokyo South Mission).
The Japan Kobe Mission will consist of the three Osaka Stakes, the Kobe Stake, the Kyoto Stake, the Fukuchiyama District and the Shingu Branch.
5. The Japan Nagoya Mission Boundary will be changed to include: Nagoya Stake, Nagoya East Stake, Shizuoka Stake, Kanazawa Stake, and Nagano District.
6. The Japan Hiroshima Mission will include: Hiroshima Stake, Okayama Stake, Matsuyama District, Takamatsu District and Yamaguchi District.
"The reestablishment of the Kobe Mission in Kansai and the creation of the Tokyo Mission which will focus on greater Tokyo are significant steps in moving forward missionary work in Japan."
These changes will take place"...on or about March 1, 2007,..."
We hope this helps in understanding what has taken place. There are many saints excited about this change and we, Sister Broadhead and I, are two of them. We are excited for two reasons: 1)the Kansai area will have the Kobe Mission again for the saints there and 2)the Nagoya Mission, over which we presided for three years (1985-88), will have all of its former boundary back plus the two newcomers---Shizuoka and Nagano. It will be especially exciting to see the missionary work fluorish under one Mission in Tokyo as it was when I was here (1954-57).
These are indeed very wonderful times in which we live and serve in this country with so many wonderful, faithful people.
