48. Waiting, Waiting

Around two o'clock in the afternoon of November 9, 1876, Kajiro Ueda was leaving for the Tenjin Festival at Kayo. Suddenly his daughter Naraito, who was weaving, began to cry, "Iwagami-san of Furu with his great mass of hair is descending on me. I'm frightened." Later, she was administered all possible medical treatment without success. Through the devoted efforts of Yahei Nishiura, a neighbor, the Ueda family entered the faith and Naraito gradually recovered. She returned to Jiba the following month and was received by Oyasama who graciously said to her:

"I have been waiting, waiting. You were My aunt who saved Me five generations ago."

She was completely cured in three days. Naraito was then fourteen years old.
