They have arrived to the motherland!
Elder and Sister Yamashita arrived safely in Kichijoji late last night. The Maetanis (Gerry's sister and brother in-law) traveled to by train this morning and met them at their ward in Kichijoji to attend church with them. While they were there they met Gerry's nephew's sister-in-law and they were able to help translate their first day in church. There have already been some amazing connections within the few days that have been in Japan and I am assuming it won't be the last.
