Kristy Gets Engaged!

P8260949 - 2
Kristy and her boyfriend, Matthew Fujiura from California, visited us in Tokyo for two weeks in late August. This was his first trip to Japan. Kristy enjoyed showing Matthew around and being his interpreter.

On Aug 24 Matthew popped the question, and Kristy gladly said “yes!”

The romantic event took place outside our vacation house at "Takayama by the Sea" in the Sendai city area of Miyagi-ken where we were enjoying a few days with them and doing some tsunami recovery ministry.

Kristy told us that Takayama had been her dream place to get engaged, but that she did not expect it on that particular day. Matthew managed to surprise even Kristy!—with a little help from us.
