Our Tribute to the Hills--Hill Highlights

When we arrived in Japan, one of the first special occasions we shared with the Hills was going to see the Sakura in Nakano. This photo has always been one of our favorites. Thank you, Pres. & Sis. Hill, for your loving kindness and great leadership!!

Hill Highlights

One of our favorite dai bo-okens was to the Tama Zoo. Sis. Hill loves the butterfly house there and Pres. Hill loves the Lion Bus. We all had a great time!!

Pres. & Sis. Hill at Nikko Park

Pres. Hill's sister came for a visit and we went to Nikko Park and saw this spectacular waterfall.

While they were in Japan for three years, each one of their children and their family came for a visit. This is just one of the families that came and had a fun time!

Hill HIghlights

This was one of the first dinners we had in the Mission Home. Besides Pres. & Sis. Hill are Elder Innes on the left, Elder Jacob Lee on the right in front, and Elder Muroi on the right in back.

Pres. Hill knew how to have fun--here he is bouncing on a huge inflatable hill (no pun intended).

Sis. Hill loved being with the children. She is showing them how to decorate Easter eggs, their first time ever!

This is the last supper Tuesday evening--a delicious taco dinner!
