Weekend missions trip to Ie Island (iejima)

This past weekend we had the opportunity to travel to a neighboring island in Okinawa. This island is only accessible by boat, which takes about 30 minutes from Nago, which is in Northern Okinawa. Tim Newell a few weeks ago was invited to serve with another youth group on Island, and he felt the need to come back to Iejima and do some follow up work with the church. We had a blast, there were 11 of us who went, and we served by doing children's ministry, youth ministry, yard work, and general church ministry.

I think what you are doing is wonderful and God has chosen the right people to spread his word.
God Bless all of you.

Hey, that mountain that they are on top of is called Gusukuyama. Also on the island is the Ernie Pyle Memorial. He was a famous WWII photographer.

Quint, Alfredo, Glenn and I (and of course Rick) camped there one October with all of the middle school kids. Oh yeah. Pastor Pule was there, too. I have a picture of him on this very spot. Subarashii!!
