"As Thanksgiving approaches it is easy to be filled with many thoughts of thankfulness. As I ponder what I am thankful for, I realize that the things I am most thankful for are those things which I take for granted. Since I could remember Gardena Valley Baptist Church has always been there ministering to the Japanese community. The one thing I am thankful for is the people of the church and especially the staff both current but most importantly those who served in the past. For it was through some friends when I was younger that were there for me, planting the seed, nurturing it, and watering it, awaiting its fruit. It was through the training that those friends received they were able to answer my questions and encourage me. For that I am gratefully thankful.

Continue Blessings GVBC,
Alyne Yamanaka."
