Dr. Shinsuke Tsuchiya and his family dropped by the mission office to visit. It was a pleasure to meet Alyssa, Ryuta, and Kiyoshi in person after seeing them on facebook the last couple of years. Shinsuke recently received his doctorate in Japanese from Ohio State University. The family will be moving to Utah where he has a job teaching at BYU. They were in the area to see the church history sites and we were thrilled that they stopped by to visit us.
Shinsuke spent some of his high school years in Marquette living with the Blotter family. The Blotters had met his family while they were in Japan with the Navy.
