Bp Adney Y. Komatsu of Anuenue Ward Honolulu Stake, will return to Japan, the land of his ancestors, to preside over the Northern Far East Mission.
The Honolulu-born bishop first saw Japan after the close of World War II when he went there as a member of the U.S. Army of Occupation. He was a member of the 441st Counter Intelligence Corps Detachment.
His second mission to Japan will be devoted to spreading the message of the Gospel that he accepted in 1941, just before he graduated from Farrington High School. Later he entered the Army and graduated from the Military Intelligence Language School, Ft. Snelling, Minn., in 1945.
After his discharge from the Army, he returned to Honolulu where he has since achieved success in business. He is vice president of the Honolulu Savings and Loan Co., Ltd.; secretary and director of Protective Investment Co. and vice president of American Title and Service Co.

In 1950, he married Judy Nobue Fujitani in the Hawaian Temple. They have four children. Mrs. Komatsu and the children will accompany Pres. Komatsu to the mission.
She too is a convert to the Church, having been baptized in 1948. She also is a native of Honolulu.

"Obedience is the price, faith is the power, love is the motive, the Spirit is the key, and Christ is the reason." The motto of the Japan Fukuoka Mission can be applied not only to missionary work, but to everyday life. -BYU President Bateman
