Osaka North Stake Conference and a Fun Family Day

Last Sunday was stake conference in the Osaka North Stake. We had a wonderful time with President and Sister Kido and his counselor, President and Sister Kuroki. Sister McIntyre and I both spoke in the various session and training meetings. We took this picture at the end of conference on Sunday afternoon after we enjoyed a great meal prepared by the sisters.The boys were out of school for fall break on Monday so we enjoyed a family shopping day in Link Town. On the way home he had some delicious okonomiyaki for dinner. You cook it yourself at the table. Don't know why Ricky is making a mean face? He loved the food!
Link Town is on the outskirts of Osaka near the Kansai Int'l Airport bridge. You can see the big Ferris Wheel and the ANA Hotel in the background.
Serving a mission with teenage boys presents some unique challenges. We weren't sure what to do when they rolled down the windows and started saying hello to people while wearing the ski masks! It is Halloween week so I think they did their trick. We did not give them any treats though. It was a fun day!

Thanks so much for keeping this blog. I served in the Osaka Mission 20 years ago, and I love reading about how the work continues to go forth. And seeing the occasional picture of a building I remember like the chapel in Abeno is wonderful. Not to mention how much my mouth waters looking at pictures of okonomiyaki. Thanks for the blog, and for the wonderful service you, your family, and missionaries you lead are undertaking.
