We (Mark and Lynn Pratt) had not been missionaries to Japan since 1985. And had not attended ICOM after that. But I was asked to speak at the Ladies’ Tea at the 1998 convention. I’d just assumed that current missionaries from Japan were regularly exhibiting–but was terribly shocked to find that Japan was not represented. Japan is such a strategic country. But the older missionaries were retiring/dying, and no one was in the wings to replace them. What was going to happen with Japan missions?
