Today [August 26, 2016] is our 711th mensiversary!
Our 111th mensiversary occurred while we were on board the President Cleveland steamship headed for Japan.
Six hundred months is fifty years, of course, so this year we are remembering those significant, life-changing events of 50 years ago: our appointment as missionaries, the enjoyable 13-day journey to Japan across the Pacific Ocean, the excitement of those first weeks of living in Tokyo, the challenge of language school, etc.
