A Happy New Year.
How are you? We are very fine. We are surviving a freezing temperature in Canada.
We had much snow on Christmas day. It was a
calm and beautiful holyday. Sometimes it falls in temperature of about -15

Every day I am really enjoying a meaningful life, not only in my academic life
at the University of Toronto and some research fields on social work, but also in Christian
life, or in friendship among neighbors. Especially friends at Church (we are
attending the Leaside Bible Chapel) are very kind to us and inviting us lunch
or dinner on almost every weekend.

I am looking forwarding to seeing you.
Grace and Peace in Him.
