In February 2013 two players from the Japanese baseball league came to Seaside Chapel to give their testimony and sign autographs. Many people from the community came. It was a great evening.
Many people came for autographs from two pro-baseball players.
They are both American, but playing in the Japanese Baseball League.
This is Jason Standridge.
And this is Matt Murton.
They both play for the Hanshin Tigers.
Many people listened to their Christian testimonies.
Both young and old came!
They had a question and answer period. This is the first, most curageous boy.
Some asked about training, others asked about what they ate.
Each one who asked a question was given a prize.
This was very popular!
After the question period came the autograph time.
Every single person lined up!
With each autograph, a testimony card was given (written in Japanese).
There were many people, but the players were patient and kind.
Every single person who wanted an autograph received one!
Some even got pictures!
Each person left very happy!
I do not know how they did it; my hand got stiff just watching!
