Every once in a while I find something that is unique to Japan, or at least based on my experiences, it is unique. Here is a rice dispensary. It's open 24 hours a day. You can get rice anytime you want! I guess that would make sense in a country where rice is quite important!

This past Tuesday was my Bible class' turn for homeless outreach. We met at Higashikurume station by 5:40 a.m. or at Ikebukuro by 6:15 a.m. Some of the students were apprehensive about going, but were also excited. After all was said and done, we all had a good experience and were able to minister to a number of people. We even saw some of the men reading the pamphlet, which was quite exciting. The students also commented on the fact that they saw some of the men eating their breakfast. One student gave a great description when she gave her breakfast to a person. She said she had this warm, good feeling. It is good to hear that being a part of this ministry gives the Middle School students the opportunity to impact the world for Christ!
|The "breakfast" I made for Homeless Outreach. It was an obento, crackers, orange, and edemame. A Christian pamphlet is also included.|

The Brain Bowl is scheduled for Wednesday, February 13th. The team of grade 7 and 8 students has been chosen and we are getting prepared. We also have Winter Break coming up in a couple of weeks.
Thank you all for your prayers and support over the last 5+ months! The adventure will continue and I look forward to the challenges ahead!
