The driftwood display is wonderful!
 please look!
 The display of the product display has become fashionable.Masaya Tazaki, who has moved to the Ono village, arranged the products on chairs and shelves made of driftwood that came to the beach of the open sea.When I was chatting with Mr. Tazaki, who visited the rescue center, he said, "Do you need a chair?"It's nice to get one and put the product on it!I asked for it, and I decided to line up four, including the shelves.What a free!I'm so sorry, but I enjoy making it while I work, so if you're happy, I'm happy with Mr. Tazaki's words.
 Occasionally, the next day I met Pope Francis, who decided to sell books.Daddy's poster in the bulletin board space is shining.

The Father de Rotz from Cambodia

Brochure table
In the brochure
 Customers from Cambodia, Bishop Olivier and believers visited.
 At the morning mass, I was informed that a bishop from Cambodia would visit and offer a mass, and I thought that he was a Cambodian bishop, but the face of the bishop who seems to be in his 50s at the rescue clinic European descent. As soon as I was waiting for the question "Which country are you in?", He answered in fluent Japanese, "I am French, a member of the Paris Foreign Missions Society."
 Twenty-five years ago, when he visited the open sea, he learned of Father de Rotz and joined the Paris Foreign Missions Society.He was dispatched to Cambodia and is currently active as a bishop. The attached pamphlet said, "I'm trying to imitate Father de Rotz."According to the pamphlet, there was only one believer when dispatched.There are currently eight churches, and 25 people were baptized at this year's Easter.Established educational facilities from kindergarten to university, and established support facilities for people with disabilities.It operates a gift shop, caramel factory, garment factory, silk weaving center, restaurant, and also handles farms and livestock farming.In addition, he is also making efforts to revive traditional performing arts in Cambodia.The followers of the bank were related to traditional performing arts.
 Exactly De Ro-sama!Mr. De Rot from Cambodia, Bishop Olivier.

blue sky! long time no see…

Akou tree
Persimmon tree
Sugar cane
 It is the blue sky after a long absence.
 From the latter half of August, the rainy season continued, and the typhoon hit and the annoyingly hot and humid days continued, so my heart is also blue air.
 Even so, the landscape changed completely due to the salt damage of the typhoon.Look at the persimmon tree and the akou tree.All the leaves have fallen and it looks like winter.The persimmon fruits were left on the leaves before they were colored.A large tree of ficus superba planted by Mr. De Rot, a large number of leaves that have fallen due to salt, but the strong ficus superba has already sprouted on every branch tip.
 The cotton I was looking forward to couldn't be opened on a tree branch.I dried the blue fruits.The sesame seeds were harvested before the typhoon.This is okay, it's full of sesame seeds.I intended to harvest the tokibi, but I found many fruits on the branches that died yellow in the sea breeze.Dried for seeds.
 There are many things you can do to live with nature.While I'm busy cleaning up, I'm feeling a little complicated.

I'm sorry for the previous report ...
 On Saturday, September 9, Nikko Securities Nagasaki Branch and about 7 family members came to the Udera (Ohira) cultivated field for weeding and tea picking.Despite the forecast of rain, everyone's enthusiasm that "we will do it even if it gets wet", God made the weather refreshing.The three insect catchers also enjoyed sweating together, and the flower field of the grass bobo was refreshing! I had you pick the second tea and finished it as black tea at a later date.
 After lunch, I was planning to volunteer to make tea, but it ended with a day without sun, abandoned, and promised the next chance.
 By the way, the insect catcher returned with large grasshoppers, mantis, dragonflies, etc. in their baskets.
