We welcomed 20 American volunteers who flew to Japan two days ago. They will volunteer for CPI Conference (Church Planting Institute), a 4-day-church planting conference from today. Yesterday, we had time for supper together, and I introduced my team to them right after AIive International service. I saw three American teenagers who came as volunteers sitting at a table with my daughter Aki. I was glad these young people came and experienced a different world from their home country.
