2016 FBWA Youth Exchange to Japan
This year, the SDBWA coordinated the program and chose girls from our district to participate. Southern District selected 2 women (Katelyn Morimoto, Gardena BT and Kelli Kato, OCBC) to represent the FBWA in Japan for the Youth Exchange Program sponsored by the FBWA. SDBWA (San Fernando Valley HBT will be hosting the exchange students from Japan in 2017).
Here is a copy of the report compiled by the committee to the FBWA.
The articles written by the girls for the Wheel of Dharma can be downloaded and read. They both read their reports to everyone in attendance at the FBWA conference held in Bellevue, WA on October 9th. Bishop Umezu mentioned he would like to go next time, Shizue Yahata (FBWA president) mentioned he would have to shave his legs :-) to be eligible.
