Welcome to Kodomo no Ie!
Finally hot summer with its many days over 100 F ended and fall seems to be
just around the corner. Mulberry trees in the school yard have grown thick,
providing us nice shade from the sun.
We are delighted to have so many new and returning children back to KNI,
and we are looking forward to the new school year!!!
From Paster Tom Hower and Paster Samuel Chow
On behalf of First United Methodist Church of San Gabriel,
welcome to the 2009-2010 school year.
As in previous years, we anticipate that the smiling faces and
wonderful laughs of the children will fill our hearts with joy.
Their enthusiasm fill us with hope for the future.
May God bless our future as we rely on God's direction
and love for KNI and its children.
God's love is a gift for us and children.
Kamisama-no shukufuku ga Arimasuyouni.
