東北 Tohoku

This car number plate is from the city of Sendai in the Tohoku region of Japan.  While Sendai is not the capital of the Tohoku region, it is the biggest city there.  I will be a part of the final vision trip to 東北 before we send out our long term team to this region later this year.

My first trip to Sendai was as a wedding pastor.  I was requested to perform a wedding at Saint George’s Chapel.  It was nowhere as big as the Saint George’s church where the royal wedding just occurred; neither were there as many people in attendance.

This Wednesday we will return to 東北 and also Sendai, however, not in as nice a vehicle as the one in the picture above.

This is a picture of the Seddon family – Gary from Liverpool, Naoko from Japan, and Kai their son.  They will be the leaders of our 東北 team.  It will be one small step for Gary and his family and one big step for us here in YWAM Japan as we stand with them in the first of several planned new locations to be pioneered.
