Signing the Quilt

25 Aug

Hanging in the mission office is a quilt made by the President’s sister reflecting the theme of the mission “True Disciples – One and All”.  Each new missionary has an opportunity to sign the quilt pledging to become a True Disciple of Jesus Christ.  It is a joy watching how carefully each one signs his name.   The center square of the quilt reads “Makoto no Deshi” or “True Disciple”.   “Makoto no Deshi – Hitori to Mina” or “True Disciples – One and All” is embroidered down the right side of the quilt.  Down the left side border it says “Nihon Kobe Dendobu”, “Japan Kobe Mission”.   Across the top of the quilt is the name of the church in Kanji.  If you want to see details or the signatures on the quilt you may click on the picture to enlarge.

    Sister Zinke thank you so much for sharing all these wonderful pictures!! It is so great to see our boys and how happy they are. What a great way to start a mission in signing that beautiful quilt. We are so thankful Elder Wilde is there in Japan with you and President Zinke. We look forward to this great journey together and thank you for being so wonderful to him. May the Lord continue to bless you and watch over you all!!! Much love to you from the Wilde family. 🙂

    Sister Zinke, Thanks to you and President Zinke for sharing the wonderful photos and experiences of our missionary sons on your blogs. It’s very reassuring to see their smiling faces and know all is well in Japan. I just feel so grateful to you for taking the time to make Elder Day’s mission come alive for us here at home. Thank you! JoLyn Day
