New Year's Eve

New Years Eve was a lot of fun!

Rob gave the message at W2 and afterwards, we had an all night Fellowship!

We had our 1st annual Soup/Soba Potluck.

In Japan, they eat soba on New Year's Eve, with the hope that they will have a long life. We eat it 'cause it tastes good!

Next we played Karuta. Karuta is a traditional Japanese game that is played at New Year's.
As famous Japanese poetry is read, you try to be the first person to slap the card that has the same poem written on it.
We changed it slightly: we used Bible verses. We alternated between Japanese and English, since not everybody can understand both languages.

Well, the night was still young (even if I am not), so we broke out some board games. We are not playing Poker, even though it looks like it.

Finally it was the New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone!
