Temple Reunion 21 Apr 2015
Phil, your email has gone dark - Phil Stevenson (1980-1982) - ibcphil@y5.dion.ne.jp - any updates on the reunion? It appears the temple will be completed in 2016 with a dedication in 2017 - as of this moment, several of us are planning a trip back - Reynolds, Abel, Hill - and any information would be great!

Sapporo Restaurant? 11 Jan 2015
Talking with my son about our missions, and had a brain fart . . . .
What was the name of the restaurant in Sapporo that was all you could eat meats and stuff that you cooked at your own table? Sapporo missionaries would go there on p-days.

Mission Song: 'Tokubetsu na Meshi' 08 May 2011
Dear fellow Frozen Chosen,

Who remembers the mission song we sang during President Suzuki’s period (1976-79) and presumably for some period before and after? I believe it was called ‘Tokubetsu na Meshi’ (特別な召し). It has apparently fallen out of use over the years, but I’m interested in learning if anyone knows the background to where it came from and when/why it faded into history. Does anyone have a copy of the music and lyrics they can send me?

Thanks!

Earthquake and tsunami 16 Mar 2011
In all the news about the quake and tsunami, I have not heard anything about Hokkaido. Does any know how the members in Hokkaido are doing? Or any of the RM's who are now home in other areas of Japan?

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks - Paul Shimai

Passing of President Horiuchi 12 Feb 2011
http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/deseretnews/obituary.aspx?page=lifestory&pid=147921168

Russell Nozomi Horiuchi 01/25/23 ~ 01/15/2011 Russell Nozomi Horiuchi quietly passed away on January 15, 2011, ten days before his 88th birthday. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, January 22, beginning at 11:00 a.m. at the Lakeridge 4th Ward, 158 East 1100 South, Orem, Utah 84058. Friends may call Friday evening, January 21 at Berg Mortuary, 500 North State, Orem, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and at the church Saturday morning from 10-10:45 a.m. Russell's humble beginnings began in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii, on January 25, 1923, born to Mitsutaka and Kikuyo Koyama Horiuchi. After graduating from Lahainaluna High School, he attended Honolulu Vocational School where he certified as a journeyman electrician. With the outbreak of World War II he served with the U.S. Army Military Intelligence Service, arriving in Tokyo only fourteen days after the surrender of Japan. There he met and married Aiko Mori on August 6, 1947. After the war he returned to Hawaii, but he felt a need for further education. Missionaries encouraged him to attend Brigham Young University where he was honored as valedictorian in 1953. He earned his master's degree in political science at the University of California Berkeley. He taught at San Mateo Junior College in California before accepting a position at Brigham Young University Provo where he chaired the geography department. His doctorate was awarded from the University of Washington in geopolitics. At his retirement the College of Social Sciences invited him to deliver the commencement address. He will long be remembered for challenging students to think and examine interconnecting linkages. The Karl G. Maeser Excellence in Teaching Award paid tribute to his invigorating classroom style. He served as mission president of the Japan East Mission 1970-1973, and after retirement he and his wife served as Temple President and Matron of the Tokyo Japan Temple, 1988-1991. He has also served as the bishop of the BYU Asian Ward and twice as MTC branch president. Russell was a man of simple tastes and pleasures. He loved mowing his lawn twice a week. He derived great joy in distributing the harvest from his garden. His home was always graced by friends, former students, missionaries, and neighbors dropping by for a visit. Each heard Russ' gambare -"do your best," and "save your money" lectures, and was better for it. He was a master fisherman, nearly always bringing home his limit, even when others had no nibbles. More importantly, he was a fisher of men, listening, counseling, and encouraging the discouraged, guiding careers, and celebrating accomplishments. Though he rubbed shoulders with the powerful and rich, he never forgot his peasant roots. He was a common man of principle who had an uncommon touch. He is survived by his wife, Annette Aiko; daughter, Ellen (Stephen) Williams of Texas; grandson, Scott Hurst of Salt Lake City; and sister, Kathleen Horiuchi of San Francisco.

President David H. Hoki Passes Away 29 Jan 2011
I'm sorry to report that I received an email from Carolyn Hoki, President David Hoki's daughter, that President Hoki passed away this week on Tues, Jan 25th. Funeral services will be held in SLC on Feb. 2nd, Wednesday. I will post more details when available. President Hoki was an awesome man. A man of few words, at least to us rag tag bunch of missionaries, but the words he spoke were full of meaning, power and love. He always had a twinkle in his eye like there was more to the story than his was telling you. I loved and admired him and as I look back now, truly appreciate his willingness to sacrifice and come lead the Sapporo Dendobu and help all of us build strong foundations for the rest of our lives. I'm looking forward to shaking his hand and thanking him again some day. God speed President Hoki.

temple dedication 02 Nov 2010
To the choro/shimai tachi of Suzuki dendobucho. Let's plan ahead and have a Sapporo Temple dedication reunion in 2012. If you're interested we could also plan to tour other parts of Japan for a week before the reunion. I have lead many short term study abroad tours to Japan for my university and would be happy to help coordinate a trip to see Hiroshima, Miyajima, Himeji castle, Kyoto, Osaka, Mt. Fuji, Tokyo, Nikko etc. if there is interest.

Ben Jacobsen Passed Away 18 Oct 2010
For all those who served around 1993-1995:
I don't know if you heard, but Ben Jacobsen Choro just passed away after fighting cancer. The viewing is tomorrow night, the funeral is Wednesday at noon.

http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/saltlaketribune/obituary.aspx?n=benjamin-jacobsen&pid=146007860&sms_ss=facebook&at_xt=4cbccce3d2b8bf66%2C0

"Benjamin Garff Jacobsen 1974 ~ 2010 A young man with a great heart, a faithful spirit, a bright mind, a wonderful family, and a contagious zest for life, Ben died at home on October 13, 2010. Born March 26, 1974 in Salt Lake City. Graduated from East High School where he was captain of the cross country team. LDS missionary in the Japan Sapporo Mission. Received a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering from the U of U. As a licensed structural engineer, he was a founder of and partner in Structural Design Studio. In the LDS Church he served as elders quorum president and Sunday School teacher. Ben wisely married Allison Burbidge in the Salt Lake Temple in 1996. They are parents of Sarah (10), Cameron (7), and Nathan (4). Ben is survived by his parents, Ted and Charlotte Jacobsen; sisters Sarah Schmidt (Brian) and Laura Dunlop (Jason); brothers Bruce (Jenny), Paul (Holly), Andrew, and Scott (Courtney); Allison's parents, Dennis and Rosemary Burbidge; brother-in-law Clark Burbidge (Melissa); seven nephews; 10 1/2 nieces; beloved uncles, aunts, and cousins; and a large circle of treasured friends. Ben loved being outdoors with friends and family. He placed first in his heat in the 2008 Lotoja bike race. A year later, he completed that race in respectable time despite being diagnosed with cancer. This year, many of his biking friends wore "Team Firestorm" jerseys in Ben's honor and he was at Lotoja to support those who have been so supportive of him. His final entry in the blog chronicling his encounter with cancer states: "I now begin to move sooner than I would like toward the end of this journey but to the beginning of what will surely be an exciting new journey without the pain and stress of the past few months. I will be delighted to be free of pain but I shall very much miss family and friends (for a season), biking, early morning 'Dawn Patrol' in the snowy backcountry, the chance to help create a respected structural engineering business, hikes to Grandeur Peak with Allison, soccer games, violin recitals, Christmases, Hebgen, etc. I hope I will be allowed an occasional 'hall pass' to observe from afar the significant future events in the lives of my family." "Allison and I are deeply grateful for the love and support which we have received from medical professionals and wonderful friends and family, near and far, during the past 15 months. It has made the journey less difficult. Thank you!" "Although my mortal life has been shorter than I had hoped and anticipated, I have been greatly blessed. I have a truly remarkable wife; three bright, good children with great potential; faith in the Resurrection and eternal family relationships; six siblings who have loved, challenged and helped shape me; parents and in-laws who have loved, encouraged and cared deeply for me; great, faithful, loyal friends; wonderful business associates; and more than a few sacred times when I have known, by the Spirit, who I really am, the purposes of life, and the truths of eternity. I'll be just up the trail and around the bend . . ." Friends may call at the Parleys 6th Ward, 2350 South 2100 East, Tuesday evening, October 19, from 6 until 8 p.m. and on Wednesday, October 20, from 10:30 until 11:45 a.m. Funeral services will be at the Parleys 6th Ward Wednesday at noon. Private graveside services will occur on October 19. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Ben's name to either Huntsman Cancer Foundation (500 Huntsman Way, Salt Lake City, UT 84108) or www.rendezvousserviceranch.org. "

Looking for Sada Ryuuichi 28 Jun 2010
I lost track of a member I baptized in Sapporo. His name was Sada Ryuuichi and he'd be about 38 now. He later served a mission in Hawaii and even married a return missionary I believe. Unfortunately, I've lost his address and his email has changed. Not sure where he lives now.
