Is it day one or day two? It might even be day three. Jet lag and travelling time zones does that to you. Anyway, yesterday I arrived in Japan, and made my way to Hikone.
Finally. Medical this morning, and they said I'm good to go. Bags are packed, only a kilo or two over but had to leave a lot behind. Room's looking almost tidy. Oh, it really is happening, then.
Man, it really is all happening. I went down to London today and picked up my ticket, and handed in my visa application for processing. I'll be flying out early on the 20th - two and a half weeks' time. There is so much to do before then, but I think it'll all work out. I've found that when I travel I get incredibly stressed unless everything is worked out well in advance; so I'm going to try and get most of my packing done this week, with the aim that in the last week I'll just be hanging around waiting to go.
Just a quick note to let you know my visa is on its way, and I will be booking a flight in the next few days, for around two weeks time.
It's been a very busy few days: first a visit to Barnstaple to talk to a client, then to Wales to spend a day and a half with my father, back to Bulstrode and then today, down to London to preach my final sermon at London JCF.
It’s been a busy weekend - on Saturday we had our Metropolitan region prayer meeting, which saw me (and a couple of other missionary families) getting up and talking about what we’re doing and where we’re going. I had a few people sign up for my newsletter and one offer me some support as well. Read more about Sendings off
Well, nearly a month in the making (!) my latest prayer letter is out! If you want to get these by email and you don't already, drop me a line.
Hey, what do you think of this? I'll be munging this blog to fit the design soon, and maybe trying to fit Memories into it as well.
