Today we finally had a project to aid the earthquake victims that we could help with. Yesterday we took the train to the Mushashino Stake Center in Kichijoji and helped put together 4,000 hygiene kits that are going to be sent to Sendai asap. It was great working with the Japanese members from that stake. There are a few that I know and I was glad to see Rie Takanazawa. I hadn’t seen her since the earthquake. We had a few members of our district in attendance and our good friends in our branch, the Scoffields.
We started by folding in towels and then just jumped on the lines where they needed us.
This little girl was about 3 years old. She worked tirelessly for over 2 hours emptying the toothbrush packages from their boxes so they could be put in the kits. She would empty the toothbrushes and then flatten the box to be recycled. She was so darling.
