Meeting Shumway Choro again 17 Jul 2003
This message is directed to those from the Suzuki era who remember Shumway (Doug)Choro or me. In May of this year I returned to Japan to teach a cultural anthropology class on the Ainu. It was wonderful and Doug, who has spent most of his post mission life in Asia, arranged to come and visit me. We had a glorious 3 days together, visited local sites (in Hikone), went hiking and talked. We reminisced about the good old days and how are lives evolved to the present. It was one of the most rewarding connections with another person ever-- thanks Doug, your insight was keen. One of the first things Doug said when we started visiting was, "I sure hope my journal gets better." What he meant was, more positive. He had been reading his dendo journal in preparation for our visit, and I had too. We found that we had been incredibly hard on ourselves and expected perfect performance and blessed results. Since the results were rarely perfect we found that our entries were quite negative with respect to ourselves. We heaped all the blame on us if we didn't get in a house during kobetsu homon, or if the investigator dropped us or a baptizee went inactive. "It must have been that I didn't study hard enough this morning"; or it was because "I let my mind wander during scripture study"; or it must have been that "I looked too long at a cute tryphyd," etc. Our mission was kibishii, no doubt about it, but were we all too competitive with ourselves and each other; was it the system? It was to that point the greatest 2 years ever and part of it was the intense discipline required, but I also think we may have been too harsh with ourselves and took ourselves too seriously. What do you think?

Calling all Kanji bandits! 13 May 2003
I have been given the priveledge of doing research for the new Personal Courage Wing at the Museum of Flight in Seattle. It is a museum in itself soley dedicated to the brave pilots of WWI & WWII.

We have received large number of authentic WWII Japanese magazines that I can't read.

Would any of you kanji bandits out there like copies and take a crack at them?

Thanks - Deana Paul

100 yr. anniversary video 11 May 2003
Does anyone know if the video "hi no izuru kuni" is available thru the SLC distribution center? It's about the 100th anniversary of the church in japan (all in nihongo) and its got a lot of good footage of the Tokyo temple announcement, Fukuoka temple construction, story of H.J. Grant going to Japan, etc. My son borrowed it from his seminary teacher for the weekend, and I'd like to get a copy of it. I checked the website and requested a list of Japanese materials, but it takes about 2 weeks to get it.

Abe Kazoku 18 Feb 2003
Hello all.... I am in need of the help of our more recently returned alumni.

I am trying to locate the Abe family from the Teine ward. Apparently they have moved because my mail was returned.

Father is Nobuyuki, Mom is Mizue
2 Sons Takamasa and Akio

They joined the church in late 1993 and I visited them on vacation in 1996. I haven't had much from them since about year 2000. Anyone know where they may have moved to? Dad had a fairly fancy restuarant in Susukino and they were in an apartment in Hon-cho of Teine so it is possible they have moved. Anyone with any info please let me know..

Thanks folks.....

Shinkotoni Contact 13 Jan 2003
Does anyone stay in contact with any long-time members in Shinkotoni? I want to track down an inactive family. They have moved from Shinkotoni, but I thought that an old-timer member (preferably a sister, since the Dad was not a member) might know where the family is now.

missing my companion 10 Jan 2003
Hey there all,

I'm looking for my 'missing in action' MTC companion. Elder Brandon Scott Peterson. He always used Scott as his first name though. Although his parents had moved to Sandy, Utah he normally claimed Hawaii as his home. He served from March 93 to 95. I lost track of him about 4-5 years ago and his family has apparently moved so I can't contact his parents either. If anyone knows where he is please let me know.
