THE TAKAMETER

 

blog posts from Eric & Sue Takamoto

We made it through Review Week!  Woohoo.  We were sitting through one of the reviews in our guest room when I burst out laughing.  Two of our staff had replaced our wedding photo in a silver frame with a magazine photo of a voluptuous woman.  It lightened the mood significantly!

Here is our latest one-minute Nozomi video....

Being Thereby Sue Takamoto

Today, 3/11, we have felt the burden and the privilege of walking with our Ishinomaki friends through the remembrance and the pain of two years ago. We are thankful for so many who have joined across the world to pray with us. We posted messages and photos today up on the wall for everyone to...

"Please don't forget us!"

Our church in Washington DC, Fourth Presbyterian, is using the one-year anniversary of the tsunami to raise prayer awareness for Japan.  They asked us to make a short video from our family that shares about our move up and our hope for Tohoku.  With limited time, this is the four minute video that we made for them to share...

Eric returns to Sendai

My husband Eric has returned to Sendai, working with Be One/Hope for Tohoku, which is organized by a group of house churches and missionary friends in the Osaka area.  Since the earthquake first occurred, they have worked tirelessly to coordinate relief efforts in our area.  Twice a week, they send up a truck and van load...

Our family is preparing to come back to Sanda, Japan in a few days with many mixed emotions—how can it be otherwise? Tonight our oldest son Owen was listing all the places we could go upon our return; the friends we will be able to meet again; the Japanese food we can once again enjoy.

But there are always tears, as it means once again parting from loved ones. Those who know me or have read my blog (The Takameter) consistently know that this is the most difficult challenge for me in being a missionary…

We have truly loved the care, hospitality, and encouragement that we have received through our visits with friends and family. And the interest in our ministry in Japan!

Now that we have had a chance to show our 2010 Takamoto DVD to various churches and friends this summer, we wanted to make it available for any of you who would like to watch it. It is just under five minutes, and shares some of the things we are excited about even in returning to Sanda (our city) in a few days. Please pray as we prepare to return—for all six of us as we adjust back and help the older three children, especially, prepare again for Japanese school which will begin shortly.  Thanks.

For sure, for sure, we are confident that the God of Sanda is waiting to continue His wonderful work there. And we are so thankful that he is willing to use us to help accomplish that.
