Just thought I'd let everyone know what's happening this weekend. It's probably more AND less significant than Kathy and I realize.
We are going on a Christian retreat. It turns out that there is a group of Christians on the JET programme and they are getting together this weekend in Minakami (not too far from us). So we are going. Not really sure what we will find. Let's just say that our understanding of our "faith" has changed very dramatically and very suttlely here this year. It has been almost that long since we've even really talked to other Christians (in English). I'm a little nervous, but excited. At the very least we will meet more people here - that's always good. Who knows....we'll let you know after the weekend.
