Baptisms in the Ocean- and finding a GRENADE!!!
There is a place called Toguchi Beach on the West side of the island where most of the baptisms are held. It is also one of the most photographed places on the island. Unfortunately I can not currently locate any good pictures of this site. Maybe I will find them later. Anyway, after a baptism a member was poking around in the rocks on the waters edge and found something interesting--an unexploded grenade from the Battle of Okinawa in 1945. We notified the Military Police from the nearest installation and then left it there for them to dispose of properly. Of course, we had to get some pictures before we turned it over to them.
