It was a great day in Sumoto.
President Kasai and family with us after the baptisms. He is a very happy branch president. He can no longer fit all his members in the current rented church building. There have been 12 new baptized members added to his branch since we re-opened it about one year ago. More if you count children under eight. They are all active and attendance at the branch has increased dramatically. This has been a wonderful thing to watch. The members have been great at working together with the missionaries and this has made all the difference.
