Day Off

Well, since Monday was a Japanese holiday we decided to join the Bible College students on their outing.

They have classes Tuesday through Friday and do a lot of ministry on Saturdays and Sundays, so Monday is their day off.

Usually they go somewhere on the island. Today was a visit to Katsuren Castle (ruins) and to Ikei island (which you can get to via bridge).

Almost Here

So we have about 5 weeks to go before the birth.

We had a huge blessing on Sunday: the baby turned (on her own) and is now in the proper position!

We were praying that it would happen naturally and God answered our prayers!

It looks like it will be another girl, so Emi will have a little sister to play with (or boss around).

It is amazing that you can make out features on the sonogram.

(okay, so the doctor drew in the eyes, but it's neat just the same)

New Students

Well the new group of students have arrived for this semester.

Please pray for them as they begin an intense time
of studying and ministering here on the island.

This picture was taken in Nago City at the Cherry Blossom Festival (they come early in Okinawa)

Please pray for them!

Baby Shower

This is Yuki. She will soon be a first time mom.

Our church wanted to have a baby shower for her.
