From another missionary family in Japan)

Dear Betty,

… We were blessed to have Dianne here as our Mission Nanny. She helped in so many ways. She enabled Jackie to be able to study Japanese at home and a language school. She also enabled Jackie to participate in some of the ministry work. Having four young kids: 5, 3, 2 years old and now 6 months old, keeps Jackie busy. David was able to get back to his routine of Japanese language study, teaching English and church work.

We also moved from Suzaka to Nakano, which is about 20 to 30 minutes away. Dianne was able to watch the kids while Jackie packed. On our moving day Dianne helped load our van and help Jackie unpack our belongings in our new location. On the home front Dianne was able to assist Jackie with various tasks so that consistent child raising was accomplished during this time of transition.

Dianne was able to share her testimony at the church we worked with in Suzaka. She was able to attend a ladies luncheon with Jackie. The ladies luncheon was sponsored by several churches in Nagano and it’s main purpose was to reach out to those who do not know Jesus as their personal Savior. Dianne was able to attend the church we work with now in Nakano and she was able to go to the home with one of the families for dinner.

We praise our heavenly father for allowing using Dianne to bless our lives and the lives of Japanese people.
