Itsuko “Sue” Saito spread the word about mission work in Hawaii her whole life. While she was still in Texas for college, she wore her kimono and spoke to many churches about the mission work in Hawaii. She spoke to many churches locally about missions education and ministry. She didn’t just talk, she did! She initiated opportunities to bring children to church and to teach them about missions. Her passion was seeing young children involved and serving in missions education.
She was the first woman elected to serve as the executive secretary of the Hawaii Baptist Convention’s Woman’s Missionary Union in 1954. She also was on the State WMU Council and the aloha Council at Hawaii Baptist Academy. Even when she passed away in 2004, her life is still a legacy of missions and ministry.
We can continue Sue’s legacy through the Sue Nishikawa Offering for the Hawaii Pacific Missions. Monies given to this offering goes to help Hawaii Pacific Baptist ministries. Let’s be like Sue Nishikawa: let’s pray, give, and do missions right where we are!
