PRAISE GOD!!! People came from all around the island and from all walks of life to help Aloha Pregnancy celebrate the grand opening of Aloha Pregnancy Osaka.The banquet hall was filled to capacity.

They were welcomed by our vibrant MC, Miss Hawaii Lauren Cheape, who did an awesome job. Then nostalgic local and ethnic music by the timeless Ebbtides. Then they were treated with a mouthwatering buffet dinner of Japanese dishes, topped off with Matsumoto style shave-ice with all the trimmings. Thank you Mike and Lisa Rabe and the staff of Creations in Catering.

The testimony by Misato, volunteer of APCCC Osaka and Founder Steve Holck consisting of a role-play of the pro-life decision by Misato, despite the very cruel behavior and remarks by the father of the child brought tears to the audience.

The opening and closing prayers were done by Father Bill Xenos Church of the Risen Lord, and Pastor Klayton Ko, First Assembly of God Red Hill. Prayer was also said for the family of Dean Morimoto owner of Banzai Plumbing and longtime financial supporter of Aloha Pregnancy who recently passed away with brain cancer.

All of this came about through the very hard work of APCCC angels, Henrietta Muramoto, Carolyn Kobayashi and Radford Sagarang.

Finally a huge Aloha and thank you to all of the attendees whose prayers,volunteering and financial support will help Aloha Pregnancy Center continue to grow and benefit our branch in Osaka Japan. Continue to be informed by logging on to our website as we look to open more satellites with the help of God the Father,God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
