Making Sushi!!

Last Thursday at MOPS Joyce came to teach 14 of us the art of making sushi... born and raised in Japan she is our resident expert!!

Joyce explaining how it should look when it is cut... all the ingredients should be in the middle!

Olya, Alyona and Sveta tasting the ginger and the wasabi!!

It was such a joy to participate and to watch the process! Many of the moms were making sushi for the first time. Most of them had only seen it in stores. Joyce took the time to explain each step and they eagerly wrote down the recipe, asked lots of questions for clarification, and some of them even drew pictures of where each item should be placed!!

We will take a break for the holidays and start back up again on January 15th. Please keep our group in your prayers as we now feel ready to start inviting women from the neighborhood to join in!


  1. Hey Alida, I know you all have a couple more days before you will actually celebrate. But I wanted to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  2. LOL! Alida, you should be an expert at sushi making by now!
