How many times?

We have begun singing gospel music at an adult day center in Tokyo since April. We're so happy to visit there.

When I counted how many times we visited there, I realized it was the fourth time.

I'd like to perform there at least seven times, but I don't have a special reason for that number...

Performance in August

Performance in an adult day center

We visited again in an adult day center in Nakano.

We visit there regularly.

This month, we performed for 45 minutes with two gospel singing groups named "Uranus" and "Ezob".

 In the first half we sang some popular Japanese songs and in the second half we sang "Yasuragi" and "Sound of The Wind" gospel songs.

The audience sang "JOY" and "Great Love", a couple of our originals, along with us.

We received comments like "I was so moved.", "So fun!", "Please come again" and more. 

We also plan to perform next month. 

We are grateful to the Lord.

At first we weren't sure where Hiratsuka was. Now I know Hiratsuka is located near Yokohama. Fujiwara-san and his wife, who live nearby, came to the concert.

He took a lot of our photos.
It was a big help to us!
We really appreciate it!

Third, we visited an European style house called "Hiratusuka no Yokan" in Kanagawa. It was built about 100 years ago and registered as a Unesco Tangible Cultural Site.

What a lovely house!

We sang eight of our original gospel songs before an audience of about 50 people.

They enjoyed listening.

Everybody was moved, so we received an encore at the end of the performance.

Some were interested in gospel music, so they asked about our next gospel concert! They said, "Please contact me when you hold your next concert."

Before the concert began...

We were served a cup of rose tea with rose cookies in the British style.
It was so delicious!

Another cup of tea...

Today was an unforgettable day.

Maple Syrup Festival

We were invited to perform in an event called "Maple Syrup Festival in Chichibu." We left a good impression. So the hosts of the festival invited us back!

Thank you!

They hold the event two times yearly in Spring and in Autumn.

We also plan to perform next spring!

There are many good things are made in Chichibu.

They make many things with their maple syrup such as cake, soda, cookies, ice cream and etc. We were given some cake and soda as gifts.

Today was pretty good for us!

The 2014 September Concert : Part 1

This year we were given the opportunity to perform on three stages in the "September Concert."

It was our first visit a nursing home in New Yokohama since last year.

It was a beautiful place and we were able to sing in front of about 150 people.

Second, we performed in JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency). There were many overseas students, so in English we explained the meaning behind our songs.

We sang "Jesus Didn't Forget About Me" by EJ from the Sound of the Wind 2 Songbook.

Many people listened with interest.

Some performers sang Japanese songs in Japanese traditional clothes called "Kimono." How lovely!
