December 26, 2002: Late Christmas party
|We welcomed Mr. Zhang YingKang, a student from China learning in Chiba University from yesterday as a "New Year Home stay Program."
Today, we all visited Kujyu.
|A cold wave since last evening made Kujyu mountain range white and foot road side.|
|We had a pleasant party at Mr. and Mrs. Yamada's house in Kujyu.|
A late Christmas party to sing hymns will open soon.
|Yamadas live in a wonderful Canadian longhouse. We set up posters in and out of the house. The fireplace keeps the room warm.|
|Cakes are ready for serve.|
Today7s sponsors take lunch first.
|Brought-in rice balls, baked egg rolls, salad, pickles and more.|
|In the afternoon, the guests showed up in twos and threes.
The party opened at 2:00 p.m. Let7s sing many hymns! The party cerebrates the setting up of the electronic organ to be dedicated to the new house of GOF under construction.
|Ms. Takahashi, a member of GOF, plays the electronic organ.|
We enjoyed singing many hymns of Christmas.
|Tea time comes.
Ms. Yamada read loud a wonderful story of "Is there Santa Clause in the world?"
|Lovely cakes and cookies, black tea, coffee, oranges, persimmons, and pleasant chatting filled the warm room.|
|I have had a very good day today. Thank you Mamada for your kind open house.|
