April 17, 1979, we arrived in Sapporo with two small children tired and shell-shocked. When our Japanese classes finally commenced two weeks later this was my teacher.
Today I had dinner with her for the first time in several decade;s. Naturally we talked about those days long ago and I thought of Matthew 10:40-42 "Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. … And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward."
May God reward her!
