From June 1st through the 3rd, Kyoshu-sama made a missionary visit to Osaka and Nara, accompanied by his wife Mayumi-okusama and his successor, Masaaki-sama.

On the 1st, Kyoshu-sama arrived in Osaka and in the evening, attended a friendly dinner meeting with members.

The next day on the 2nd, he attended the Osaka Membership Meeting held at the Osaka Garden Palace. Masaaki-sama stood to give a greeting and with passion, said that to serve in the divine work that Meishu-sama is wishing for is true joy for Meishu-sama and for us. If we should have that feeling, we can convey the contents of] the leaflet that is embedded with Meishu-sama’s true wish, with confidence.

Continuing on, Kyoshu-sama delivered a message. He touched upon the teaching, “Inaugural Statement: On the Founding and Birth of World Church of Messiah” and gave us guidance saying that we should not see this teaching as something that was written 69 years ago. Regardless of what form of organization we find ourselves in or wherever we belong, the spirit with which Meishu-sama founded World Church of Messiah lives within us. 

Afterwards, mixed with humor, Kyoshu-sama and Masaaki-sama sincerely responded to questions from the members, and in a harmonious atmosphere, participants felt and received great emotion and realizations.

After the membership meeting in Osaka, Kyoshu-sama, Mayumi-okusama and Masaaki-sama headed straight for Nara and attended a friendly dinner meeting in the evening with ministers.

The next day on the 3rd, Kyoshu-sama was present for the Nara Membership Meeting held at the Nara Church. All the members who gathered came in contact with the true wish of Meishu-sama, the spirit of the salvation of humanity embedded in every word of Kyoshu-sama and Masaaki-sama and pledged to further serve in the divine work that accomplishes God’s will.
