    Tommy Takami was a guest speaker at a high school church camp held at Doane College in Nebr. in the late 1950’s. That led to my life-long interest in his work at ARI, thru reading the newsletters & making small donations to the work. I’ve been sorting thru boxes lately & came across one from 1989 with a list of people & what they were doing. I glanced thru it to see if I recognized any names. I was not familiar with yours but the brief paragraph about you & Shinn made me wonder what you had done with your life after your return to the USA to attend a theological seminary. So I just now Googled your name & I praise the LORD for how He has been working thru you all these years. May you continue to grow in wisdom & understanding as you study His word.
