Like most English teaching jobs in Japan, Dan's has a one year contract. This is so the BOE's can get around paying bonuses & promotions that other teachers get. Also, if an English teacher is not wanted for the next year, then they simply do not hire them again.
So every February/March many English teachers will run around doing job interviews in hopes of securing another year's employment.
This year, Dan has two offers. He needs to make a decision. Soon.
One option is to continue at an Elementary School in Naha City. He has worked there 4 years and can pretty much do (teach) whatever he likes. Plus, this next year has him pegged to work at a school 5 minutes walk from where he lives.
The second option is to work at a Junior High School in Okinawa City. This means commuting everyday and working a little later, but it pays slightly more.
We want to go where God is leading us, so would you please pray for His direction?
