Friday, December 13th was a busy day. The grade six class had their Passover. It is a great activity. Pastor Teresa Sherrill (she has a daughter in grade six this year and is a pastor at West Tokyo Union Church) has volunteered to lead the Passover. This year I took a larger amount of the bitter herbs (wasabi) than I intended and it did almost bring tears to my eyes!

That evening there were two sporting events at CAJ, Varsity girls field hockey played The American School in Japan (ASIJ) and the Varsity boys basketball also played ASIJ. There was also the Middle School Christmas Program. This program is not as intense as the High School program, but it really is enjoyable to attend.

I have enjoyed this weekend. In the next couple of hours I will head to bed and rest up for the next two and a half days of school, with more activities planned. Grateful for this season though and all that it means, Christ coming down to save us and we are able to look forward to Christ coming again!
