In December of 2013, Rachel and Il-Seuk Masuda of the Ohio WAIT Team led a group of 11 members from the Ohio and Omaha teams to form and train a new team in Iowa. The trainers received a warm welcome from Bill and Yumiko Roche who, along with their three daughters, have made it their mission to take the WAIT message into their hearts and their lives.
New team members learned five acts: Desert Rose, the skit, Wait for Me, Hero, and Stand in the Rain. Rachel Masuda reported, “The Iowa kids are bright, intelligent, hard working, kind, and talented! I'm excited for this team.” On the third and final day of the training, the team performed their new acts for friends and family.
We are eager to see the development of this new team, and expect that great things will be coming from Iowa in the future!
