Marines take a group photo with Bishop Paul Saneaki Nakamura at Camp Hansen, Okinawa. Bishop Nakamura spoke about his life experiences as a World War II veteran and his service as an Anglican Church Bishop. Pictured immediate left of Bishop Nakamura is our Jurisdiction Chaplain Andrew Burns, who is currently in Okinawa with the Marines and took a lead role in organizing Bishop Nakamura’s presentation.
Our congratulations to Chaplain Richard S. Beyea III on his selection for promotion to Lieutenant Colonel! The promotion ceremony will likely be held sometime during or before the spring of 2016. Chaplain Beyea is currently serving as Wing Chaplain to the 47th Flying Training Wing at Laughlin Air Force Base in Del Rio, TX, where he leads the chapel team in ministry to aspiring Air Force pilots, their instructors and all who support the mission. About his selection, Beyea says, “All glory to God and a huge debt of gratitude to my wife and partner in ministry, Renee.” Chaplain Beyea also wishes to express his thanks for Anglican Chaplain intercessions on behalf of his second son who was born prematurely in May; Reuben James is now a healthy, happy and robust eight month old (pictured here with parents and brother Ricky after his baptism).
