Typhoon Fun

Just wanted to let everyone know that I made it through the typhoon a-ok, so thank you for your prayers and emails! It ended up veering at the last moment so I don't think we got the full force of it, but there was some pretty violent wind and rain. The news was hilarious because they would put some poor reporter out on the beach next to the 7 meter waves. I just know they were being punished for something! And then they kept showing shots of people running down the street after the wind and rain had demolished their umbrellas. Yet some people still continued to try to protect themselves with it. Go fig.
My friend Judith and I actually rode out the storm at the home of a family from the Taga church, the McClains. They're great people with a beautiful family and I look forward to getting to know them better. The McClains own an English school in Hitachi-Taga and employ those seeking to be vocational missionaries. They're actually currently looking for a new teacher, so if you or anyone you know is interested, let me know!

Me running to the supermarket to buy provisions for the storm :)

Tell Petros that I told him so. The day has come where OC has deleted our student accounts...he's need a new email adress and a blog. For goodness sakes, Blake has a blog!

Glad you made it through the typhoon. I had lunch today with a guy from the Christian Church.

Hooray for surviving the storm!

I have a question ... are the majority of cars in Japan white? Because they sure look that way in your picture!

Oh - and I want to teach. ;-)
