Kenji in Atsubetsu 27 Jan 2005
Hi Brother Oman,
My wife grew up in Atsubetsu and her mother still attends church there. Once it was the biggest ward in Hokkaido and my wife thinks it still is in spite of a few divisions into other branches and wards. There used to be more missionaries in the ward and then the ward was labeled by Elder Kikuchi as a slacker ward in the area of missionary work and at one point, all missionaries were taken out to allow the members to reflect on their missionary responsibilities. I visited there in April of 04 and attended the Atsubetsu ward and it seemed to me that people there were in good spirits. My wife thinks they are kind of lackadaisacal as her mother is always complaining that only 3 people show up to clean the church building. Atsubetsu is on the outskirts of Sapporo and is located near a large shopping area called ShinSapporo. My wife says that her mother (sister Takai) invites the missionaries over for dinner once a month and that she recently had a half Japanese elder over who showed pictures of his family. She also mentioned that his Japanese language skills were superb to other gaijin missionaries, with a nice Japanese accent. Sounds like Kenji.

Atsubetsu 26 Jan 2005
Kenji is teaching a couple of investigators in Atsubetsu who are making good progress. Time is going by fast. Kenji no longer feels like a new missionary as he sees younger missionaries coming and older missionaries returning home. Kenji is happy to serve. Pease pray for him when you can. What can you tell me about the Atsubetsu Ward and the area there?

Hokkaido Earthquake 19 Jan 2005
Jim and I were discussing earthquakes yesterday. I found this site that talks all about that earthquake that happened in 1994.

I remember being in that Shinkotoni 8 story apartment and feeling 'the earth move under my feet'. It was swaying back and forth.

6.3 Hits Hokkaido Jan 18, 2004 18 Jan 2005
Magnitude 6.3 earthquake hits Japan's Hokkaido

TOKYO (Reuters) - An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.3 jolted Japan's northern island of Hokkaido late on Tuesday but no tsunami warning was issued and there were no immediate reports of damage, public broadcaster NHK reported.

The tremor occured around 11.09 p.m. (1409 GMT) and its focus was about 50 km (31 miles) below the seabed off Kushiro in southeastern Hokkaido, NHK said.

weird how that's almost exactly where the 6.3 hit in the summer of 1994 when I was there and felt it in sapporo. I was in the Hokudai apato and it was about 10PM for those who were on the island may remember where you were.

Lost shimai 06 Jan 2005
One of my favorites (that probably goes for anyone who served in Hakodate) was Tomita Toshiko shimai. Does anyone have any contact information for her?

Pancakes 06 Nov 2004
I remember eating the most delicious pancakes for breakfast in my greenbean area. Matsuda Shimai was my dode. I don't know if she used a mix or did it from scratch but if anyone has a recipe for what we ate in Japan I'd love it. If i remember correctly they were kind of yellowish and were a little sweet. Also, if anyone knows where Matsuda Shimai is, I'd love her address. (We were in a sannin with Inoue Shimai) Thanks.

Christmas Sing in Odori Koen 04 Nov 2004
The picture from Dillion reminded me of when we sang on the same stand in the same place the Christmas of 1990. Most of us got video tape copied of the program recorded off of the TV. A year later, when I was watching it in the US (I don't think I have watched it more than once ever), I was surpirsed to find that standing in front of me was a Shimai senkyoshi that I would not meet for the 1st time until several months later.
"Of course I was there! I can't believe you didn't even notice your future wife!" said Sonntag Shimai!
"Hey! It was dendo bakkari! Nothing kankei nai back then!" was my response.

Did anybody go to the Hotta era reunion during the recent general conference? Any news or pictures that you'd like to share? I wasn't able to attend, but would love to hear any news or see any pictures that you might have taken!

Looking for Elder Isern 19 Sep 2004
Does anyone know Elder Isern's current phone number or e-mail address? Elder Hagihara is looking for Elder Isern. They both served in Sapporo around 1998-2000. Elder Isern is from Barcelona, Spain. Elder Hagihara is planning to visit Spain in October, so he hopes to see his old companion over there. He called the number he got from Elder Isern long time ago, but it seems like that number is no longer in use. He said machine answered the phone, but he couldn't understand it because it was in Spanish. If anyone knows Elder Isern's contact information, please contact me.

Looking for 2 Elders about 20 yrs ago- Nemuro 14 Sep 2004
My son tells me there is a member (Miura-shimai) in Nemuro who would like to get in touch with the missionaries that first contacted her about 20 years ago. One was “somthing” like Christenson Davidson (or possibly David-san) maybe from Utah, and his companion (who was larger) may have been from Texas. If anyone knows info about these two RMs please have them contact me and I will help them get in contact with Miura-shimai.

Abo Shimai 29 Aug 2004
Anyone that served in the 1980-82 era that might know where Abo shimai (the missionary) is? Her father was also the mission president in one of the Japan missions in the 60's.

Nemuro Japan Kushiro District 10 Jul 2004
My son Kenji received his visa after serving in Ventura, CA for two weeks and is now assigned to Nemuro, Japan (the most eastern point in all of Japan). He will serve with Elder Humphrey. Is anyone familiar with that area? What are the people like there? Any Ainu in the area? How strong is the Kushiro District? Who are some of the members there?

Thanks, Paul Oman

Awaiting Visa 24 Jun 2004
Kenji was moved up in the MTC and was to leave for Japan next week, but today was reassigned temporarily to the Ventura, CA Mission pending receipt of his visa to go to Japan. He is currently serving in CA. The MTC was a great uplifting experience for him. He really enjoyed it. This reassignment to CA came as a last minute surprise. Maybe he will find someone in CA to teach in Japanese.

Tsuchidas 17 May 2004
Would the Tsuchida's eldest son be the Tsuchida Choro who was an AP with President Munns? He was a real character and an excellent missionary.
