After doing missionary service in Japan over 25 years, I was sent to Korea in 1987. It was to start a new community of the Holy Spirit sisters in Korea. There were many Catholics in Korea and the sisters were well accepted. Through patience, carefulness and love of the sisters, the communities grew faster, got vocations, and then we could send Korean sisters to other countries. After
fulfilling the mission in Korea for several years, I returned to Japan Province. I helped with the household work in the convent until I moved to Bethania community (a community for elderly).
Jesus, the Lord of Mission, has been blessing our patience and hard work. I am sincerely grateful that I could overcome many hardships, not because of my abilities, but my faith in God and freely given grace of vocation from God.
