This month had a wonderful mission conference to bring the new Kobe Mission together. We met at the Kobe stake center. It was not easy getting all 150 of us in one picture! One unique blessing of the mission change was the addition of Sister Matsuoka to the Japan Kobe Mission. Her younger brother, Elder Matsuoka, has already been serving in Kobe and now they are in the same mission! Elder Matsuoka returns home in August, but they will be able to say they both served together in the Japan Kobe Mission.
