Photos of Japan 1950 thru 1969 Missionaries Civil Service

This post is dedicated to my Parents, Griff and Joy Pifer and many of the Civil Service and Military families that supported our Military Soldiers and Seventh Day Adventist Missionaries.
Being a Civil Service or a Military child growing up in Japan .....was one of the most positive memories I was piviledged to have.

My parents would entertain Admirals, Generals, Privates and Conference Presidents.....all with the same love and hospitality to all.  They saw no rank or color and all were welcome in our home.

Dad worked for the Civil Service Government, attached to Tachikawa, thirteen years prior in the Navy and also serving as an Elder for the Amanuma Seventh Day Adventist Church in Tokyo,  ....If you knew my parents they were very loving people...that were a joy to be around.

I have found many thank you cards and letters ....from Missionaries like Dr. and Mrs. Richard Nelson, son of A.N, Nelson....thanking them for all their hard work and financial support.  "Uncle Rich and Aunt Carol...could have made a lot of money in the U.S.A. being a physician ...but they as a "team" decided devote many years to the country of Japan so they could see Jesus.

I've looked on line for photos of people serving in Japan during 1950 thru 1969 and can not find many belonging to the Civil Service or Military members of the Seventh Day Adventist church so my hope is that we can add to this Post...positive stories and photos to share with the world.
