Dear LCMS Coworkers around the world,


From which foreign language do Japanese medical terms come? What is Urawa Lutheran School putting in the mailbox of each of its 760 students at the beginning of this new academic year? Where is the strict "No Mask Zone" that has been relaxed to allow for this facial accessory? Is it true that a subway station has been installed in our school basement? What is one of the ways that we use the Bible in our English-as-a-foreign-language (EFL) classes? Who tried to unplug the official Tokyo Olympic Countdown clock?! Why does the year 2020 have a "30" and a "25" in it for our family?


For the answers to these questions and the latest up-to-date news about our ministry and family, read the attached Going Forth newsletter!
