I Made It

Konnichiwa (Hello) ! I am really in Japan. Part of me feels like I am living in a dream world! Everything has felt like a blur the last few days. Yesterday morning I preached at the Grace fellowship/Bible study service. And last night we had a welcome/farewell party. The couple who has been teaching here this past year are leaving on Wed. The evening was overwhelming with so many new faces and names.

Steph, I agree Pokeys are very good, Robin introduced me to them. Speaking of Robin I feel like i am living in his legacey...or at least getting all his hand me downs. I have his former apartment, his cell phone and his bike.

Word of the day: Arigatou -means thank you and was my first Japanese word.

Hey cuz. I'm glad that you made it there okay. I am very jealous, I'd love to be in Japan. I hope to see a lot more post and pictures over the year.

New word "Nani" = "What?"

Wow! Sounds like you're having a good time so far. That's awesome. I wish I could throw in a cut Japanese phrase here, but I don't know any... so I'll settle for hoping things continue as well as they seem to have started.
