Webmaster Note (11/17/2014) This Site is only partially functional:

Since 2003 our all-jidai Sendai RM/Alumni Site has been hosted on here on, but developers have stopped maintaining their framework and basically abandoned it. Display functions are still active, but no email or notification functionality remains. When I contacted the developers/maintainers of the framework with whom I had most recently worked, one simply stated, "I'm not surprised things have gone downhill, there really hasn't been much work on for years now... Facebook (and all the other social media sites) have really taken over, and interest in keeping up-to-date and working has fallen flat."

Where do we go from here?
Unless this gets resolved by maintainers (not likely), this Site is dying a slow death. There are some alternatives for keeping in touch with your fellow RMs in the future:

  • Facebook If you use Facebook, someone in your jidai has already set up a Facebook Group, so that may work for you as a way to stay in touch. Some groups are 'private' so you may have to click on a link there to ask to join. Below are links to various Sendai RM Facebook Groups that I'm aware have been set up-please contact me with additions or corrections.
  • Your Own Jidai's Site For non-Facebook users, setting up your own jidai's website may be a possibility. Here's what I set up for Pres. Teruya's jidai (1974-77) to facilitate our 40 Year reunion. If someone in your jidai is interested in setting up a similar website for your specific group of RMs, contact me.
  • Non-Facebook re-contact If you're a registered user here (on this old site) and you're trying to establish contact with an RM from your jidai who is also registered here, I can assist with your efforts to re-connect, assuming their email address on file is current. Contact me.

We're glad you found us! We're here to help all who served under all Presidents in Sendai, reconnect with each other, with their Japanese roots and with the history and present-day status of the mission. Use us to help spread the word about your upcoming reunion or post/view pictures of past reunions. It's also a place to share mission pictures and stories.
    Click on the Returned Missionary "Alumni" link at right to:
  • See who has already joined—use 'Search Tips' found there. Use 'Send Email' links on RM profiles to establish contact/reconnect (you don't need to join or log in first).
  • Join us!—click 'Add Profile' there to start; once registered, you can receive 'Send Email' reconnect messages described above. You specify your President(s), so you'll receive jidai-specific Site notices, such as when new RMs join (monthly) or reunion notices.
  • Post a message—such as, "I'm looking for ___Chōrō/Shimai."(Once you've joined).

Help get the word out to companions, friends & douki-to join over 1,200 of us here, or have them fix their email address

News from the Mission:

  • Jun 2014: President Rasmussen reports that Sendai Mission headcount as of 30 Jun 2014 will be 134 young missionaries (53 are Sisters 81 Elders), of which 41 are native Japanese. Additionally, 4 senior couples and 4 senior sisters. "Mission is robust and member missionary work/coordination appears to be at a high, at least since we have been here. Convert baptisms are up from our early years, but still low historically. Missionaries are genki, are learning the language/customs, and approach dendo with a balanced approach."
