Chofu Baptist Church Japan

In 1928, Rev. Wada accepted a position at a Baptist Church in Chofu. However, Rev. Wada was called to serve in the USA and left on Nov 12, 1928 on the SS “Taiyo Maru” NYK for San Francisco. After Rev. Wada left Chofu Baptist Church, Kuni Wada took care of the church and school.  A pastor from Shimomoseki came to Chofu once a month to preach and teach the congregation. This is where the rest of the family remained until they all rejoined in Los Angeles, CA in 1931.
