Brother Paul was instrumental in someway helping the Family start up when the first "pioneers" came to Japan. I'm not sure who he met first, but his son mentioned "Elijah".
If you read somewhere in the Family's "Book of Remembrance" about Japan, Brother Paul is mentioned briefly.
Brother Paul started his ministry a long time ago. His Bible-verse signs are posted up on electric poles all throughout the Tohoku region. One of their methods of "witnessing" is passing through towns and cities in a vehicle using a loudspeaker to give out the salvation message. They also stand in busy areas with tall signs on posts that have some sort of salvation message. They don't approach people, but only wait for interested people to approach them.
*We saw them out witnessing three years ago... in 2003. We approached them and said that we were with the Family. We told them that we heard how Brother Paul helped the Family start up many years ago.
Well, one man who knew of the situation spoken of said that Brother Andrew did help them... even financially. But the money was only a loan... and was never paid back!!! We were soooo embarrassed!!!
Plus, when they found out about Berg's sex and FFing teachings... that was the end of that... they didn't want anything more to do with the COG!!!
So, here's Brother Paul (Paul Broman's) website "Grape City". He bases out of Sendai and has quite an extensive computer software business as well as a large school.
