Yesterday, the Church of All Nations (Japanese) celebrated Tanabata, a Japanese star festival.  People generally celebrate this day by writing wishes on a paper strips and hanging them on bamboo tree, sometimes with other decorations.  At All Nations, the kids wore their Yukata and Samue and wrote their prayers to our heavenly Father.  Then the prayers were hung up on a bamboo branch.
