What generally is required from me each day, is to clean that area. I take a bucket of water and use the broom, dustpan, brush, and squeegee to clean out the cement structure. I am responsible for 3 - 4 days after which I pass "the book" on to the next person.
|This is the cement structure where we bring our garbage and recyclables. Note the bucket where I bring water. This picture was taken after I cleaned it.|

Saturday, I was the event supervisor at CAJ. We had SAT taking their tests, Saturday School in the library, and the Middle School boys teams played St. Maur's and YIS. It gave me a chance to work a bit in my office. I managed to organize my files and put them in my new cabinet. I'm still working on decorating and putting it together, but the piles of papers and books are now off the floor and put away in the cabinet/bookshelf. That felt good.
Here are a couple of pictures of the boys playing basketball.

Sunday, I decided to attend International Community Chapel of Saitama. It is has some English as well as Japanese. To get to Kotesashi, I bicycled to the train station, took the train, and then walked to the church. It was a nice service, with one of our CAJ staff preaching there. I think I may go again. The funny thing was, on the way to Kotesashi on the train, for the last two stops, I was the only person in the car. That is quite unusual!
|I have been told, but never checked it out, that they have the same advertisements in the same place in each car.|
It is almost the end of the weekend. We begin what CAJ calls SLEW, Spiritual Life Emphasis Week. Our speaker is Seulgi Byun. I pray that he may be able to be used as God's messenger to share what the students need to hear. I hope you had a good weekend as well!
