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.
It’s time for another “what’s going on” post. You probably already know I’m at the HQ building of our mission: some people work from home, I live at the office. It’s just a matter of perception, really. And you may know that I’m working in the IT department. Thankfully for me, this doesn’t mean computer support! I’m actually doing all the fun work that Mark here doesn’t get to do because he’s busy with support. This is a bit unfair on Mark, but it’s providing me with interesting jobs to do.
